Whether planning a large scale conference, client appreciation event, a company retreat or simply planning a team meeting, Conference and Event Management has the right space and talented event planners to see your vision through to execution. Located in the nation’s most enterprising city, our campus is home to over 42,000 square feet of event space and Canada’s only boutique hotel owned and operated by a university. As the first University Conference and Events department in Canada to achieve certification in One-Stop Shop with the Association of Collegiate Conference and Events Directors – International you can plan with confidence knowing you will be provided with exceptional service that provides one contact, one contract and one invoice. A wonderful selection of functional and unique spaces on campus include the Energy Environment Experiential Learning (EEEL) building which is one of 29 buildings across Canada to achieve LEED Platinum certification. For larger scale events, the Red & White Club, which overlooks the McMahon Stadium football field is an excellent venue for weddings or banquets. The Administration Atrium is located indoors yet has a park-like feel with an array of plants and greenery with a skylight that fills the room with natural light. The Senate Room, located on the top floor of Hotel Alma is a contemporary venue with a stunning view of the majestic Rocky Mountains and the bustling campus below. Conferences, workshops and retreats are also the perfect occasion for the Alberta and Blue Rooms or the Legacy Suite. Conference and Event Management at the University of Calgary possesses every element you require to make your next event or conference a resounding success. We Just Love Events!
