Seeing a return to pre-pandemic event volume, the Centre has a strong mix of national and international conventions, local and regional meetings, trade shows and gala dinners that will drive economic and community vibrancy for Halifax and Nova Scotia, creating new business, partnerships and tourism opportunities.

“This will be our first in-person meeting since the pandemic and the first time the congress will take place in Canada. We are excited about welcoming the neuromuscular community, particularly those who have never been to Canada,” said Clare Beach of the World Muscle Society Secretariat. “We are particularly excited about realising the event we’ve been working on with the team at the Halifax Convention Centre for many years. They have been an exceptional partner, learning alongside us as we have navigated new situations, providing support, flexibility and guidance.”
