Convention%20Centre%20004.gifThe Rhode Island Convention Centre

The Rhode Island Convention Centre in Providence

is connected to the Westin Hotel and there are plans

in the works to build a second convention centre hotel.





I live near the intersection of Atwells and Dean on that

map, on Federal Hill. My boyfriend works at the Westin.

There is also talk of connecting it to the neighbouring

Dunkin Donuts Centre to allow for larger exhibit space

in there.

Toronto's largest convention centre ("center" for you Americans) is the ginormous Metro Toronto Convention Centre downtown. The original part of the centre is the building where the "copyright c" is (near the left edge of the photo above the "www"). In the 1990s a huge underground expansion was built. The expansion passes under the railroad tracks, and has an entrance that you can see if you look closely (about an inch below the "a" in "Waite").
