The South Okanagan Events Centre (SOEC) opened in September 2008. Owned by the City of Penticton, the state of the art arena is managed by OVG360. The Okanagan’s premier sports and entertainment venue, the SOEC brings world-class concerts and events to Penticton. We’re also home to the Penticton Vees Junior ‘A’ Hockey team of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) and the prestigious Okanagan Hockey Academy. Part of a larger complex which includes Memorial Arena and the Okanagan Hockey Group Training Centre, the SOEC also connects to the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre adding to our hosting ability.
