Community Impact

Community Impact

The Hamilton Convention Centre by Carmen’s is committed to improving the vitality of our community by attracting large, world-class events to Hamilton. Having a strong and dynamic convention and event facility in the downtown core is a crucial element in the continued growth and development of our city. The meeting, convention and special event business is an economic powerhouse which quietly generates billions of dollars each year across Canada. With Carmen’s Group at the helm, the revitalization of our facility will bring more of this valuable business to Hamilton and will greatly benefit our cities reputation and flourishing economy.

Our events attract organizations and guests from across the world who seek to experience all that our city has to offer. Additionally, these delegates and attendees typically spend four times the amount of money at local businesses than other tourists do each day. This money is infused into diverse areas including accommodations, transportation, retail, dining, entertainment, and attractions. In turn, the increased tax revenues from this business help to fund and support local schools, hospitals, community centers and more.

The Hamilton Convention Centre by Carmen’s is proud to use our business as a platform to showcase the beautiful City of Hamilton to those that otherwise may not travel to our city.
