NAV Centre recognized as ‘top pick’ executive conference centre
Cornwall’s NAV Centre is in some pretty select company.
The sprawling facility on the banks of the St. Lawrence River has been recognized as a ‘top pick’ executive conference centre by Unique Venues – 1 of 12 in all of Canada and the United States.
The Unique Venues article describes the 70-acre venue as a “thrilling meeting experience” that can accommodate both small and large gatherings in addition to providing a vast array of recreational offerings to guests.
“We are very pleased with this recognition highlighting properties within the US and Canada,” said NAV Centre General Manager Kim Coe-Turner. “It has been a team effort and lots of hard work to get to this point and it sets the NAV Centre apart from other venues of choice.”
