Let’s be honest, any region can host an event. Located only 2 hours from Toronto, 2.5 hours from Ottawa and 3.5 hours from Montreal - the Bay of Quinte region can offer price, proximity and infrastructure. We've got all the fields, rinks and facilities you need, but we stand out because of what we have to offer in addition to your event. For starters, we are minutes from three stunning provincial parks complete with over 6 kms of white sandy beaches, 1200 kms of waterfront, 33 conservation areas, Canada’s fastest growing wine region, TripAdvisor’s top ten rated craft beer scenes, a locally sourced food scene people are drooling over AND tons of outdoor adventure. There’s a pretty good chance your visit here will be productive and fun!

When we aren’t swinging away on one of our twenty-three world class golf courses, trying our hand at wake boarding, working on our tan or reeling in a trophy fish, we are a highly engaged sports community rich in tradition, history and culture. You can count on us to make your event go smoothly because we’ve already had so many great successes. Just recently we hosted sixteen countries for a World Floorball Championships, The Dudley Hewitt Cup, The Eastern Canada Cup All-Star Challenge and Ultimate Canada’s University Championships. Belleville was also featured as one of the communities on CBC’s Hometown Hockey alongside our AHL franchise, the Belleville Senators.

Why not take advantage of our big-city venues and facilities for a small-town cost. We have an average room rate of $121/night in the low season and $143/night in the high season and are perfectly situated along the 401-corridor central to the major airports in Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. You want to talk specifics - let’s break it down – 2 multiplexes, 3 arenas, 7 NHL size ice pads, a 5000-person capacity arena, 1 (25m) competition pool, 10 gymnasiums, 1 year-round sports dome, 2 multi-use parks, 17 ball diamonds, 13 soccer pitches (8 lighted fields), 2 premier tracks and 1 CFL-size field.

We have over 1300 hotel rooms and growing, more than 150 restaurants, and some of the most unique meeting spaces you will ever encounter. How would you like to have your event kickoff in a National Air Force Museum up close and personal with over 30 historic and meticulously restored aircraft or announce your winners on a beautiful riverside patio in a converted distillery turned brewery? With the help of our Volunteer and Information Quinte organization which has access to over 1000 volunteers, Bay of Quinte offers an experience that is unmatched, customizable and most importantly memorable.
