Plan Your Event – Corporate Meetings
Get down to business in Canada. Launch new products and ideas. Kick-off your best year yet. Forward-thinking CEOs know the most productive meetings and events inform and inspire. Rally your sales team against a backdrop of Canada’s most dynamic views: mountains, oceans, and gleaming glass cities humming with 24-hour energy. Set business strategies in raw, rugged, and extraordinary places, where out-of-bounds solutions to your most pressing challenges form as naturally as the surroundings. Set global strategies from a protected biosphere, a secluded castle in the mountains, or from Iceberg Alley in the off-season. Explore your options from coast to coast to coast. You’ll find the choices for producing innovative meetings are as vast as Canada itself.
Corporate Meetings Infrastructure
22 International Airports with direct flight service to the US, UK, Europe and Asia.
In Canada you’ll find more than 50 different hotel brands with names you’ll recognize. Together they total 450,000 hotel rooms in a growinglist of 8,200 properties. Choose from sleek and modern downtown convention hotels, or hip boutique properties in the heart of our cities’ cultural districts. Iconic castles and chalets standout from coast to coast, while cozy mountain lodges are just far enough away from it all, yet close to everything your delegates desire.
Before and after the main event, guests may extend their stay at one-of-a-kind accommodations they’ll only find here. Possibilities include:

THERE'S EVEN MORE TO KNOW ABOUT CANADA
Canada’s major gateway cities are clustered within 100 kilometres (61 miles) of the Canada-U.S. border.
We speak your language
English and French are our two official languages, but you can converse in hundreds of others.
- You can travel just about anywhere in Canada using only English.
- French is an official language and is spoken in every province, but the highest concentration of native French speakers is in Quebec.
Canada's Familiar Culture
Canadian culture may seem like many others—that’s because our population is made up of 200 different ethnic groups, melded together to create one big, diverse and welcoming country.

I wasn't sure what to expect and I was overwhelmed with its exotic beauty. (St. John’s) is like Ireland and the Caribbean 'squished together'…and then there are the amazing people! I can't wait to come 'home' again soon.

I would definitely recommend Montréal. It’s everything that you ever wanted: the food, the people, the way that the architecture is. I’m just fabulously in love with this city.
A Modern Touch to Meetings
Canada is closer than you think! You can touch down in our major cities within hours on direct flights from just about everywhere. Coming from the U.S.? Better still. Leading Canadian cities huddle close to the U.S. border, most within 60 kilometres (100 miles). This means quick flights from major hubs.
