Large Arena Space
Located just off Deerfoot Trail in Calgary’s southeast, the Max Bell Centre is a fully featured sports arena and public space. It has a large 196-foot by 96 foot rink designed for hockey. Without the ice, the space becomes an accommodating venue for concerts. There’s enough room in the Max Bell Centre to accommodate 3,500 people at a concert and the stands can hold 2,121 people for hockey games. The arena is the home of the Junior A Canucks and the AAA Midget Northstar hockey teams. The arena also features a high-quality, high-tech Bose communication and intercom system to add rich sound to the game or event. The Max Bell’s press box has the ability to accommodate broadcasting equipment for play-by-play coverage and the arena’s scoreboard is flexible and easy to see. In addition to these features, Calgary Transit offers access from both the LRT and regular transit services.

Conference Facilities
There’s also 18,000 square feet of exhibit space for conferences or exhibitions. This is ample room to make a strong presentation. There are also three comfortable meeting rooms that can seat 30 people for conferences. Along with the usual concession amenities in an arena, the Max Bell Centre has available catering to ensure that any meeting or show will run smoothly.

Hockey Features
For hockey players, the Max Bell Centre has a number of good features including four large dressing rooms and an automated skate-sharpening machine to make life easier for players. The arena’s ice space is even and well maintained to allow for a high level of skateability.
