Whether you are planning a large event, or a small private meeting, our Facility Rental Co-ordinator has the experience and information to help you plan your event to the last detail. 

Planning a Meeting or Event

The Civic Complex has hosted many of Eastern Ontario's most exciting and memorable events. Whether your function is a small business meeting or a major entertainment event, you will want to check in with our Facilities Rental Co-ordinator to plan your event.

Understanding Your Needs
In order to properly prepare for your event, we need to understand your needs.

Be prepared to provide as many details about your event as possible, such as:

  • is the event a private or public function?
  • how many people are expected to attend?
  • what kind of set-up do you require? 
  • will refreshment/food services be required?
  • do you need access to the facility to prepare?
  • do you need additional services/personnel?

Planning Access to the Facility
If you need special access to the Complex before and after your event (perhaps to decorate or move equipment in), we will need to know in advance.

Typically for large events requiring extensive set up, extra accommodations need 
to be made so that there is a sufficient overlap between clients.

Requesting Additional Services and Personnel
There are several different services and personnel that may be required to assist with your event, and in some cases, our rules and regulations require it. These additional services can include:

  • food services
  • security personnel
  • maintenance personnel
  • box office support
  • specialized electrical/mechanical support

 Advertising Opportunities 
Ads above front doors of Civic Complex

Advertising Opportunities are available at the Cornwall Civic Complex & Convention Centre for companies to market their good and services.

There are opportunities to fit every budget, from small poster sized ads to the sponsorship of an entire dressing room.  Have you considered putting your web site address on a wall, or perhaps in one of the dressing rooms?
 Not only will these opportunities provide a means of reaching a diverse, yet defined market, but participating companies will also build community goodwill. The sale of these advertising opportunities will be used to offset the costs of providing much needed recreational programming.

Don't delay!  With only a limited number of opportunities available, it is expected that all programs will be sold out quickly.  To ensure that your firm has a strong presence in this growing medium, contact Janice Robinson, Facilities Rental Coordinator at (613) 930-2787 ext. 2543 to reserve your spot.
