At the heart of Montreal, a city known for its unconditional love of hockey, the Bell Centre was designed to be a multifunctional entertainment hub. A massive, accessible urban infrastructure, it comprises a vast and adaptable 22,000 seat amphitheatre, offices and restaurants, in addition to the latest in staging equipment. The building and its grounds are designed according to sustainable development principles and routinely welcome gigantic and enthusiastic crowds of all ages.
