Alberta, Canada AB | Meeting Planning Overview

Travel Alberta is the government marketing agency for the province of Alberta & your first point of contact when considering Banff, Lake Louise, Calgary, Edmonton or elsewhere in Alberta for meeting or incentives. Alberta is located in Western Canada and is a dynamic, economic powerhouse and thanks to Mother Nature an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. For urban settings, consider Calgary and Edmonton - young, vibrant cities with excellent air access and experience in hosting large international events. Set dramatically between prairies and peaks, Calgary is a chic Canadian metropolis, buzzing with energy while embracing its rich western heritage. Immerse yourself in that Wild West spirit at the annual Calgary Stampede, a 10-day whoop-up embraced by the whole city. This is a place where you can explore the Canadian Rockies and be back in time for dinner. Alberta’s capital city of Edmonton is always celebrating something, from arts and culture to food and wine, dragon boats, winter - even accordions with more than 60 festivals per year! Spend the day at West Edmonton Mall, the largest shopping complex in North America, or the new ICE District, Canada's largest sports & entertainment district. For resort settings, consider the iconic Canadian Rocky Mountain locations of Banff, Lake Louise, Jasper, Canmore or Kananaskis. Dazzling peaks, lush alpine meadows, turquoise lakes, towering waterfalls and wildlife - it's no wonder groups experience a 5-7% y.o.y increase in attendance in the Rockies! Attendees may hike, bike, ski, skate, dogsled, paddle, golf or fish their way through this spectacular scenery.
