Rogers Square, a new outdoor hub for community and business events, has officially opened at the Nova Centre in downtown Halifax. The covered, open-air hub, offers access to a new state-of-the-art Rogers retail store, and can host concerts, festivals, markets, sports viewing parties, business events, city events, and more.
Located in the middle of the Nova Centre, Atlantic Canada’s most technologically-connected commercial building, Rogers Square is available for organizations and community groups wishing to use the space on its own or as an extension of activities hosted inside the building.
“We are proud to be an important part of the fabric of the Halifax community and to provide a versatile, downtown outdoor space that will benefit visitors and residents to the Nova Centre,” said Tom Turner, Senior Vice-President, Corporate and Commercial Sales, Rogers, at a media event held on Friday:
“Halifax is the place to be. Everywhere you look, our city is taking off,” said Halifax MP Andy Fillmore. “Now, that includes Rogers Square in the heart of our downtown, a place where Haligonians and visitors alike will come together to connect.”
“Halifax is a hub of innovation, technology and creativity in Atlantic Canada and we are so pleased that Rogers is investing in our city through its partnership with the Nova Centre and by opening Rogers Square for all residents and visitors to enjoy,” said Mike Savage, Mayor of Halifax.
To celebrate the grand opening and in time for the Memorial Cup airing on Sportsnet, the public is invited to free hockey-themed activities at Rogers Square today, Saturday, May 18 from 10 am to 7 pm. NHL alumni Darcy Tucker and Shayne Corson will be inside the Rogers store from 1:30 pm to 3 pm signing autographs.
