With its nomination for the Air Canada Centre Major Facility of the Year Award (under 8,000 seats), the Rogers K-Rock Centre has once again been recognized by the Canadian Music and Broadcast Industry as one of the top facilities in Canada.
Since opening the venue in February of 2008, the Rogers K-Rock Centre has been nominated for six consecutive years, winning the award in 2009, 2010, 2012, and 2013. “Kingston fans are loyal and strong, and the Canadian music industry knows it.  Our nomination recognizes the fans, along with the world class staff and amazing schedule of concerts.” said Lynn Carlotto, SMG Canada’s General Manager of the Rogers K-Rock Centre.  “Quite simply, this nomination shows that the Rogers K-Rock Centre is recognized as a world class facility, and one of Canada’s best.”
