Calgary TELUS Convention Centre
For more than 30 years, the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre (CTCC) has hosted an average of 1,200 conventions and business conferences annually.
The spectacular facility features 122,000 sq. ft. of flexible space, including 36 meeting rooms that never feel too big or too small. The CTCC offers 47,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space, five pre-function areas and a 20,000-sq.-ft. ballroom.
Throughout the year, the CTCC plays host to numerous banquets, charity events and awards ceremonies. Combining a glamourous venue with imaginative decoration and gourmet menus allows the CTCC to create memorable events, from black-tie formal to Stampede hoedown. The North Building’s 29-ft. floor-to-ceiling windows make a grand statement. In the South Building, the recently renovated Macleod Hall welcomes guests with 20-ft. ceilings and a large pre-function area.
The CTCC’s exclusive partnership with the Calgary Marriott Hotel delivers the quality food, beverage and service planners expect from the Marriott brand. Award-winning executive chef Kevin Birch creates meals to suit any occasion, from multigrain flapjacks and Alberta beef tenderloin for breakfast to wild mushroom torte or muscovy duck for dinner. Impress guests with a dim sum selection at lunch or a colourful martini bar after-hours. Expect gourmet coffee service to perk up delegates for a morning meeting and healthy snacks to keep them going throughout the day.
Meetings at the CTCC are always productive, inventive and memorable. Flexible configurations, individual thermostats, advanced telecommunication abilities and soundproof walls create the optimum environment for successful business, negotiation and collaboration.
As one of the most technologically advanced convention facilities in the country, the CTCC was the fi rst in Canada to install CAT6 cabling. This progressive cabling technology provides planners with the highest data rate capability in the business.
In addition, groups receive their own managed, secure network for high-speed bandwidth-on-demand inter-networking solutions and private access to corporate networks. Fully wired with technology, the CTCC can connect meeting delegates between rooms or across continents.
Dedicated and enthusiastic staff take pride in exceeding expectations. As such, the CTCC provides the 333 service hotline and Business Service Centre, a one-stop shop for event photocopying, faxing, laminating and office supplies. To ensure superb customer service, an event manager is appointed to each event. This dedicated event manager acts as liaison between the CTCC’s team members and partners and delivers on the promise to provide the most appropriate space, decorations and audiovisual systems for the size and nature of the function. Experienced and friendly event
services staff will provide the attention to detail necessary to ensure planners and guests are invariably impressed.
Located in the heart of Calgary, the CTCC is within walking distance to a variety of restaurants, cultural landmarks, entertainment venues and shopping, and only 20 minutes from Calgary’s international airport.
