Calgary.  Be Part of the Energy!

Welcome to an innovative and vibrant city.

As the fourth-largest city, and head office Capital of Canada, Calgary is a vibrant metropolitan.  Known for our warm, western hospitality, Calgary is a welcoming host to visitors from around the world. Growing from our duel roots of ranching and energy production, Calgary has developed a diverse economic climate with emphasis on areas such as biotechnology, geomatics, high-performance computing and financial services.

Within walking distance of ICASSP’s 2018 host venue, the Calgary TELUS Convention Center, you can discover over 1,000 shops, 200 restaurants and 50 entertainment spots. Within the city there are also 8,000 hectares of open space and parkland to explore during your visit.

As the urban backbone of Western Canada’s corporate and financial community, Calgary has come to symbolize rapid growth, enhanced quality of life and a future of unlimited horizons. Delegates and visitors will enjoy Calgary’s safe environment, cleanliness and legendary western hospitality. Not to mention the tantalizing array of pre- and post-meeting adventures awaiting you in the spectacular Canadian Rockies, only an hour’s drive from the city’s centre.

The Calgary International Airport is Canada’s third largest and offers worldwide reach.  Just 20 minutes from downtown (and the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre) the airport provides quick and convenient access for ICASSP delegates. We welcome you to Calgary and look forward to getting to know you.
