CORNWALL, Ont. — Devcore has acquired the NAV CENTRE, a 630,000-sq.-ft. multi-purpose hotel, training and conference facility in Cornwall, Ont. The facility will be re-branded as the DEV Hotel and Conference Centre.
The conference centre will be managed by Atlific Hotels, overseeing day-to-day operations, including conference and event facilities and restaurant operations. NAV Canada will continue operations on the site as a tenant, as will the Canadian Forces School of Aerospace Control Operations (CFSACO).
“The DEV is Eastern Ontario’s largest multi-purpose conference centre offering exceptional amenities and accommodations in an enviable central location,” says Jean-Pierre Poulin, president of Devcore. “We’re committed to working with local partners such as the City of Cornwall and surrounding counties along with collaborating closely with Akwesasne and First Nations to ensure that the centre operates as a key stakeholder and to attract opportunities to Cornwall which benefit all.”
“For well over a decade, the facility has evolved to attract new and diverse business segments to Cornwall from across Canada and the globe including being a preferred location for corporate conferences, sporting and special meetings and events, government training programs and well known to support business continuity during crisis and evacuations for people in need,” says Kim Coe-Turner, vice-president of Business Development and Government Relations with the Devcore Group.
