Federicton

Bound by maple forests and the Saint John River, Fredericton is as much urban energy as small-town charm

Meetings are personal in Fredericton, a high-tech hub tucked along the Saint John River. An innovation-fuelled capital city evoking a small-town vibe, meeting planners find an instant connection in a community that takes every meeting to heart. Here, personal introductions spark dynamic opportunities to engage and network in art galleries, historic sites or at the farmer’s market. Planners appreciate the community and collaboration — delegates, the opportunity to explore beyond the convention centre’s walls. It’s easy to meet in Fredericton — leaving? Well, that’s a whole other story.

PLANNING ESSENTIALS

Get a good night’s rest

Upon arrival, your guests will recognize hotel brands like Delta, Ramada and, in 2017 the Hilton Garden Inn. Along with the international chains, there are also independent properties with all the amenities.

The Hilton is connected by pedway to the convention centre, which is connected by breezeway to The Playhouse Fredericton’s performing arts centre.

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.
