About BMO Centre


Originally called the Round-up Centre, this $21 million building has undergone two major expansions since it was first opened in 1981. The Palomino Ballroom and Hall D were added in May 2000 and meeting rooms and Hall E were added in 2009.


Not only is BMO Centre the largest venue space in Calgary, it also has the only in-house special events team to coordinate banquets, speaking engagements and trade shows hosted year-round. Its five exhibit halls include: the Boyce Theatre, which seats up to 500 people and is used for theatrical productions, small concerts, and lectures; and the Palomino, Quarter Horse, Arabian, and Mustang rooms, used for wedding receptions, gala events and luncheons.
