“Calgary’s White Hat hospitality made our attendees feel welcome and enthusiastic about being in Alberta. The city of Calgary and the Telus Convention Center exceeded our expectations.” – Tressa Patrias, Master Brewers of the Americas


“Two years ago, Sigma Theta Tau International (Sigma) was looking for a location to host it’s 30th International Research Congress (2019) in our North American Region. We received quotes from 3 Canadian cities and Calgary checked all the boxes: great international airport, proximity of the city to the airport, and safety for our attendees. The size of the Telus Convention Centre and its location with Stephen Avenue was the perfect match for what our attendees look for at this meeting. Working with [Tourism] Calgary was great; they made us feel welcome, were a wonderful resource for all the “extras” we needed, from band recommendations to an offsite social venue. They literally rolled out the red carpet for our members with signage and photos opportunities. We saw record tweets using the #INRC19 to showcase our event and how attendees were enjoying the city. Calgary made our job as meeting planners very easy!” – Sigma Events Team, 2019 Sigma Theta Tau International Research Congress


“Since we relocated the conference six months before the event, we were concerned about the possible negative effect on attendance and the ability to garner local support for the conference. All of the “finalist” cities had suitable facilities for the conference. Initially we anticipated a 20% decrease in attendance due to the last-minute change; we ended up being about +3% up vs the last several years. Our lesson: Calgary is a good draw.” – Jay Lightfoot, 2018 International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing


“I thoroughly enjoyed working with [Tourism] Calgary. The pageantry services were phenomenal, professional and really made our delegates feel welcome and recognized in Calgary and particularly at our chosen venue. I wish their meetings + conventions services were available in all locations! I look forward to the opportunity to work with them again in the future.” - Lindsey Davidson, 2019 Provincial Agriculture Service Board Conference


“The [Tourism] Calgary Team truly went above my expectations as to the type of services provided to companies interested in hosting meetings and conventions in Calgary. I was made to feel at ease, they were attentive to my requests, I was provided with amazing information to choose from, energized by the opportunities to deliver the best conference and transit show possible. Thank you MCC Team! You are the best I have ever encountered.” – Luc Vincent, Canadian Urban Transportation Association 


“Tourism Calgary was absolutely wonderful and we could not have run this conference without them. From all their efforts when scouting a venue, to facilitating all that needs to be done, and helping coordinate with some recreational places and setups for our attendees, providing promotional materials and a great microsite for the conference. Everything has been great and professionally managed and we could not have been happier.” – Rasha, NACADA Region 8 Conference 2019
