The new name and logo were adopted to reflect significant enhancements
to guest services that have occurred over the past few years, as well as
the conference centre's commitment to customer service excellence.

"People used to know us mainly as a training facility," says Kim
Coe-Turner, NAV CENTRE General Manager. "Now we provide full conference,
meeting and accommodation services that offer an unbeatable combination
of customer care and affordability."

Located on the scenic shores of the St. Lawrence River in Cornwall, the
NAV CENTRE is a full service conference centre offering access to 560
guest rooms and 70 dedicated state-of-the-art meeting rooms and can
accommodate small groups of 5 to large groups of up 500.

The NAV CENTRE conference and meeting services have evolved to cater to a
diverse market. Its services make it a suitable venue for private,
public and not-for-profit sector clients alike.


"Whether it is our renovated lobby, our new luxurious bedding, five star
dinning options, or free use of audio-visual equipment, the NAV CENTRE
has all the amenities one would expect from a full-service conference
venue," says Coe-Turner. "We're also ahead of the curve in responding to
the shift towards digital business communications."

The Centre's complimentary high-speed wireless network is accessible
from almost everywhere on site and all guest rooms feature hardwire
connections. Smartboards, LCD projectors and other equipment are
available, along with translation and video-conferencing services; the
24-hour business centre provides print, photocopy and facsimile

In addition to these enhancements, the NAV CENTRE recently received Audubon International’s “four leaf” rating, in recognition of its strong commitment to environmental management and energy conservation.

"That's what the green in our new logo stands for our excellent
environmental management as well as our scenic location, with plenty of
green spaces. Red was selected because it is an impact colour and very
modern. It reflects our commitment to make your event a stand-out

Guests of the centre benefit from a fully contained facility that offers
access to customized dining and banquet options  including a 19th
century heritage Stone House, a full gym and swimming pool, as well as
plenty of interior and exterior common spaces.

"The NAV CENTRE offers an incredible number of flexible options for
meetings and conferences," says Coe-Turner. "The only thing that's not
optional is the attention to detail and client care that we extend to
all groups, large or small."

The NAV CENTRE continues to be an ideal location for organizations with
longer-term training requirements, with ample classroom space and
affordable room and board plans to make your offsite training
initiatives a success.

The NAV CENTRE is an accredited member of the International Association
of Conference Centres (IACC), provided for adhering to
globally-recognized standards in hospitality service.

"Take a look at what the NAV CENTRE has to offer, we think you'll be surprised by what we can do for your event."
