    Big, beautiful, Italian wedding!

    The ACC was a perfect venue to host our big Italian wedding. From the start, Kim was an incredible point of contact! She was always ready to answer any questions and quick to calm my nerves. The last 2 weeks before the wedding we were in constant communication and whenever things went a little wrong, she was right there to find a solution and never ever panicked. It was extremely reassuring to have her nearby at all times!
    The packages included for events are very well priced for everything they include. Payments were extremely flexible to make and Kim worked with us on our payment schedule. We really appreciated not having to do much at all in terms of all the smaller details - while we chose to do our own centrepieces and seating cards, the venue offers couples the option of doing literally everything for you.
    The night of our wedding, there were a few things that we would’ve liked to change - all small things. The lighting was not the best & for all our bridal party entrances and first dance, the lights were fully on. It didn’t allow for the right “mood” or vibe to be set. We had to ask the staff to change the lighting which they did no problem. The other thing is the party next to ours was extremely loud during our speeches. I know that’s out of staff’s control but it is a downside of sharing the same divider wall. Their music was blasting and it was heard over our speeches. It would have been nice for staff to maybe pop in next door and ask that the music be turned down briefly.
    Our server Tina was amazing though! She was so kind and ready to help. Corrine at one of the bars was also amazing!!! We had all good experiences with our staff and most were incredibly accommodating.
    Overall, we had a great experience and we are so glad we chose this venue for our special day! Would definitely recommend for any upcoming events.

    Stole from us during our wedding

    STOLE CARDS/GIFTS/VISA DURING OUR WEDDING CEREMONY. We have reported this to the police and it was not their only incident. A manager has keys to the bridal suite and stole our cards out of our card box and a visa which was in a purse during our wedding which was only 2 hours. This is ongoing and has happened more than once. NEVER COME HERE - someone needs to be fired, charged and held responsible. This happened in August 2022 - CANCEL/GET OUT if you have an event here.

    Perfect venue!

    From the start, Kim made the wedding planning at ACC smooth and easy. Despite the pandemic, communication was never broken and Kim was always an email away with all our questions and answers. ACC was so flexible and accommodating to our vision. Our food and drinks were amazing, and we have no complaints! We were blown away with the attention to detail as well as the service we received from the staff on our wedding day, they always ensured that we were eating and that we always had some drinks. We hope to hold more events at ACC. 100% would definitely recommend!

    Amazing Venue!

    We had our January wedding and reception at the Ajax Convention Centre and were blown away by the service and food. The Ajax Convention Centre has truly mastered the wedding experience and we had nothing but compliments from all the guests. Ainsley, Kim, and the rest of the staff were amazing. So professional and easy to deal with. Everyone loves the venue. Would definitely book with them again.

    Amazing Venue!!

    We had our wedding at the Ajax Convention Centre in April 2022. This venue was amazing to work with. From the time we met with them, numerous emails finalizing details, and final meetings Kim and her team were amazing to work with. They were very accommodating of our requests and our day went exactly as planned. One thing that we loved about the venue staff was when we first met with them, they told us right away we don't want to see you the morning of your wedding. We provided them with a detailed list of where we wanted our personal decor, and everything was set up perfectly. The severs and bartender were all amazing, and our guests had a wonderful time. Everyone commented on how delicious the food was. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a venue in the Durham area.
