Constructed in 1981, the Roundup Centre has been the home to a variety of conventions and trade shows. The major exhibition area features 150,000 ft2 of space and can host numerous types of events. Also constructed were a large restaurant and lounge (on the second level) and the Archie Boyce Pavilion, a 500-seat sales theatre. Drive-through access at both the north and south faces of the building offered simplified entry for large vehicles. The Roundup Centre was also connected to surrounding buildings, creating an unmatched facility for agricultural and trade shows.
