Host Destination

The City
Set dramatically between prairies and mountain peaks, Calgary is rich with beautiful landscapes, skylines and a dynamic array of experiences that allow travellers to live in the moment. It is a destination that exceptionally balances the Canadian story – urban vibrancy with prominent festivals, an abundance of art, culinary experiences, dynamic cultural diversity and opportunities for endless adventure set against a backdrop of natural wonders.

Calgary is a big city with a small-town feel. With community spirit at the core, Calgary is on its way to becoming the ultimate host city starting from arrival at the Calgary International Airport and a visitor’s first experience with the Western hospitality Calgary is known for.
Beyond the cosmopolitan city lays some of the most striking and diverse landscapes on earth. Calgary is a true basecamp to adventure. It is the perfect urban compliment to a distinctly Canadian vacation. With its proximity to the Rocky Mountains, Canadian Badlands and national parks, many of which have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, a day trip in any direction will take visitors to somewhere special; somewhere unlike anywhere else in the world.    

The Province
Are you ready to do Alberta? Seriously, you’re going to love it. You’ve seen those Instagram pictures of the turquoise lakes, the glaciers and the sun rising over the Canadian Rockies from Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper right? Even more amazing in real life. Better yet in winter (hello ski trip of a lifetime!) Your selfies will thank you. More than mountains, The Canadian Badlands are, seriously, the best place in the world for dinosaur fossils. The north is rugged and friendly at the same time. The cities of Edmonton and Calgary are growing in awesomeness -- the shopping, the culture, the drink, the food (the food!) are great and getting greater. You need to visit. Right now. Are you ready?
