Since Scotia Bank took it over they have upgraded the seating (very comfy) and washrooms (very well done). Excellent viewing, lots to eat or drink and easy access.

Beautiful, clean venue. Attended We Day event here and was very pleased with the venue and facilities. Many thanks to the hundreds of volunteers who made the day possible. Keep in mind if visiting that there are only traditional concessions available - fries, hot dogs, pizza, popcorn.

Went to see Stuart McLean at the Scotiabank Centre. Great show. Seating was comfortable but a wee bit more leg room would have been a plus. Temperature and air quality was good.

We saw Judas Priest here recently; this facility is just the right size for a show of that calibre. The staff are friendly and efficient, the lines moved very quickly and the service was very good. At one point, I left my seat and sat on the landing; some yahoo insisted on standing and I couldn't see. A lovely lady... More

Saw Mooseheads and Eagles game here. Good concessions. Comfy seats, but designed for short people. Try the Asian food - price is right and very tasty.

I am not really sure how to rate this it wasn't a bad experience. But the Food Booths were not prepared for this event the doors had just opened and 2 vendors were out of major things. At times it was a little hard to hear. But it is an arena all day long.

Attended this building for a music concert. Very nice new seating. Very convenient downtown location. Lots of concession locations. Got lost trying to get to trade centre without going outside. Faster and easier to go out and down the sidewalk half a block and back into World trade centre.

I have been here many times over the years, most recently for the Canadian country music awards. Lines moved quickly, staff were helpful in finding our seats. The whole event went well. Seats are very comfortable for an arena.
