Home to the head offices of many worldwide companies, Calgary is a hub for international travelers. Its airport welcomes over 15 million passengers every year, and thanks to an ongoing expansion, will soon welcome even more.
If you’re hosting an event here, attendees can easily make Calgary the midway point on a longer journey. The airport is both a hub and headquarters for various airlines, and as such, offers non-stop flights to far-flung destinations like London, Tokyo and Los Angeles. Frequent flights also shuttle passengers to other parts of the country for both work and play.
For over 100 years, Calgary has hosted events and guests from around the world. From our most famous stand-bys, like the Calgary Stampede, to meetings, conferences, trade shows, concerts, exhibitions and tournaments, Calgary is home to hundreds of events every single year.
No matter what you’re planning, your attendees will fall in love with a city that’s as cosmopolitan as it is friendly. From high-tech meeting spaces to down-home restaurants, bustling city centres to remote mountain trails, your attendees will love the diversity an event here has to offer.
Have you ever wrapped up a meeting with a 500-metre zipline down a ski jump? That’s just one of the attractions awaiting event attendees at WinSport – Calgary’s 1988 Olympic legacy. But adrenaline junkies aren’t the only ones who’ll find their fix here: Calgary’s attractions span the cultural, educational, and historical.
From Heritage Park to the Calgary Zoo, TELUS Spark to the Calgary Tower, there are endless ways to expand your horizons and impress event attendees with unbelievable experiences.
Not every city can say they have an 80 million-year-old mountain range in their back yard, but Calgary can. All year round, Albertans and tourists alike call the Rockies their playground, and event attendees can easily extend their stay to take them in.
Quaint mountain towns like Banff and Canmore are an easy day or overnight trip and offer excellent access to the outdoor activities for which the region is known. Downhill or cross-country skiing, mountain biking, snow shoeing and hiking are just a few of the ways one can get out and explore.
