Harbour Convention Centre

HARBOUR CONVENTION CENTRE has been the showcase building of the Plaza of Nations entertainment complex since Expo ’86. Available for film production exclusively through MX MOVIES, we are honored to present this beautiful building to location managers and location scouts in the film industry.

Built primarily of steel and glass, Harbour Convention Centre was originally Enterprise Hall (part of BC Pavilion) during Expo ‘86 and was designed as a post-modern tribute to the Crystal Palace built in London’s Hyde Park for the first World’s Fair in 1851.

In the last decade, the building was Edgewater Casino until 2017. And now, it is a convention centre for special events and concerts.

Harbour Convention Centre is very versatile in that it can be used for filming as a conference centre, casino, hotel, concert hall, movie theatre, airport, industrial kitchen, bullpen office, corporate office space, rooftop balcony and anything in your scriptwriter’s imagination as this building is customizable according to your script.
