Planning Essentials

Get a good night’s sleep

Delta by Marriott and Fairmont Hotels and Resorts are the brands you’ll recognize here. From cozy mountain lodges (Post Hotel, and Buffalo Mountain Lodge), to modern mountain retreats at the Rimrock Resort, to iconic Swiss chalets (Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise) and a storybook baronial castle (historic Fairmont Banff Springs) you’ll find just the “right” accommodations for your group in Banff and Lake Louise.

Stretch your budget in Canada

It’s a fact. Event dollars go further in Canada. With the Canadian dollar hovering between 25 and 30% below the U.S. dollar, planners are encouraged to enhance their meeting experience here. Dollars saved on the program requirements can translate into more bells and whistles or your bottom line, you pick.

Groups coming from outside of Canada may be eligible for tax incentives — inquire at time of booking.
