Planning your Travel? Banff is a Unique Destination!
Majestic, picturesque and breathtaking; the Rocky Mountains are really a destination like no other. Banff is a wonderful, quaint mountain resort town that must be experienced to be appreciated. If you have never been to Banff this is a great opportunity to discover a national treasure. If you have been to Banff, then surely you don’t need a reminder of why you want to return. As an added bonus, all National Parks are providing free entry this year to celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday!
A unique destination requires unique planning.
The low Canadian dollar means that we expect a large number of American visitors, so make sure you book your hotel room soon! The conference is being held at the Banff Centre. Nestled on the side of Tunnel Mountain on 43 serene acres, this is not your standard hotel. You won't find the centre on any online booking service, as they book only through their reservation service and rooms are only open to those attending conferences at their facility. All guests enjoy property-wide WIFI, parking, admission to the Banff Centre's Walter Philips Gallery, and PLUS membership at their fitness and recreation facilities. Let's face it, Banff has lots of options in hotel room, and we booked a smaller block of rooms this year, so if you want to get into the Conference Hotel, book now! (Conference rate ends March 21, but we don't expect the rooms to last that long.)
Book your room reservation here at the Banff Centre.
If you are planning on flying to the conference, you'll land at the Calgary International Airport. All of Canada's national airlines and many international airlines fly into Calgary. The international section has just been renovated and this is one of the nicest airports in Canada!
From the Calgary Airport you'll need to rent a car or take a shuttle bus 150 km (90 miles) to Banff. Make sure you factor in the travel time between Banff and Calgary when you book your flights.
