Why Calgary

As one of Canada’s most-loved convention cities, we’re proud to play host to a diverse array of events. Whether you’re hosting 20, 2,000 or 20,000, our venues, hotels, restaurants and cultural offerings will wow your attendees and make you look good. Event planners agree – Calgary delivers! Calgary is investing more than one billion dollars into infrastructure for planners hosting their event here - between the $500M BMO Centre expansion and hotel development on Stampede Park, the $550M event centre, upgrades to Stephen Avenue, the new Culture & Entertainment District and more - we have a lot to talk about! These upgrades, along with the capacity from the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre, position Calgary to become the largest meeting and convention destination in Western Canada by 2024.
