Edmonton Tourism

What makes Edmonton All In?

Edmonton is a city that knows what it takes to make amazing happen. We’ve got an energetic core filled with inventive eats, world-renowned festivals, and a sprawling river valley with over 150km of trails scattered throughout the city. Alberta’s capital is also Canada’s fastest growing city and home to 1.1 million friendly residents.

Visitors and Edmontonians enjoy lively sports and entertainment at the new ICE District-  a mecca for entertainment in the heart of downtown. The $5 billion, 25-acre development area includes Rogers Place, the new home of the Edmonton Oilers, and the highly anticipated JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District (2019). Not to mention a wide range of shops, restaurants, nightclubs, a casino, theatres and more. And getting here is easier than ever with 59 non-stop flights to and from the continually growing Edmonton International Airport.

Our meeting venues aren’t just rooms; they’re incubators for great ideas and connections. Awarded for excellence, the Shaw Conference Centre is located in the heart of downtown Edmonton, overlooking our city’s beautiful and renowned North Saskatchewan River Valley. A world class facility with in-house meeting planners ready to help make your conference unforgettable. You’ll also find 522,000 square feet of endless possibilities at the Edmonton EXPO Centre. Boasting seven exhibit halls and a grand ballroom, the Edmonton EXPO Centre does big best.

But, if you ask us what makes Edmonton different, it’s the people. The value of our All-In promise goes far beyond the hotel room block and meeting space for your conference. We know that a great DMO goes the extra mile. From start to finish, the whole city is behind you.

By tapping into local industry networks, Edmonton Tourism can identify ambassadors who are willing to collaborate and help turn your conference goals into a reality. Let us connect you.

Conferences are massive undertakings and, as the planner, you’re expected to balance the needs, goals, vision, and budget all while coming up with an inspirational and creative experience. In Edmonton, our Conference Service Team is here to help. They can be your point of contact for everything and anything Edmonton. They’ll introduce you to the city’s best vendors, find unique off-site venues for your delegates, help you with pre- and post-planning, and—here’s the best part—introduce you to all the incredible Edmontonians that can take your conference to a whole new level.

Together we can create meetings and conferences that are transformative and enriching for your delegates. Because we’ve got creative solutions, a can-do attitude and a citywide network of doers and makers ready to roll up their sleeves and get things done.

From start to finish, our team at Meetings and Conventions will help you make your conference unforgettable. That’s what being All In is all about! From the people, to the venues, to the unforgettable experiences, our team will show you that planning a conference can be just as amazing as attending one.
