Hold your conference, meeting, trade show or private event here at the Stockey Centre:

The Stockey Centre is the perfect venue for conferences, parties, meetings, trade shows or just about any other kind of event you may have in mind.

Our Performance Hall can be configured in theatre set-up, seating about 400 people, with a large projection screen, professional sound system and technical support for presentations. Or we can configure it in a flat floor set-up, perfect for dinners, trade shows or tables for your participants, and you still have all the presentation features we have in-house.

We also have two side rooms, the Festival Room and the Prelude Room (pictured to the right), which work well for smaller meetings, break-out rooms or to give a social networking space for your event participants. Of course, we have our large patio overlooking Georgian Bay, our Atrium and arrangements can be made for the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame to be available to your participants as well.

With a full commercial kitchen on site, meals can be catered right here, meaning you don’t have to leave the Centre for meals, and getting more done in your day. The Stockey Centre is also fully licensed: we can provide a full bar service for your event.

A brief statement concerning the professionalism of the staff and the outstanding facility that is the Stockey Centre for scientific conferences.

In 2006 I explored the possibility of hosting an international scientific conference in the then very new Stockey Centre because my colleagues who had visited me at my cottage near Killbear Park wanted to use the venue with its wonderful vistas for a high-powered meeting to discuss state of the art science.  Typically, the distractions and size of major city conference centres negatively impact concentration and long discussions.  It was very easy at that time to make the arrangements for this technologically demanding meeting and the 1st Georgian Bay International Conference on Bioinorganic Chemistry was held in May, 2007. 

Now in 2023, we have just finished CanBIC-8, and the response from the participants, many of whom have attended more than 5 or the conferences since 2007, was a very clear encouragement for the organizing committee to run at least 2 more editions, in 2025 and 2027.  That this conference has such strong support – participants vote both with their feet and their wallets – is testament to fine facility, the remarkable views, the tranquility of the location, and its amazing staff.
