Hotel & Travel

Know Before You Book
As a Conference attendee you are considered a "business visitor" in Canada. Before booking your flight it is highly recommended that you review the documentation requirements needed to enter Canada. Most people need either a visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to travel to Canada. Others may only need their valid passport.

Not sure what you need as a business visitor? Simply answer a few questions to see what's right for you. When asked, "what do you plan to do in Canada?" be sure to select "attend a meeting, conference, or trade show".

Visit our Know Before You Go page to learn more about how to prepare for your trip abroad!

Travel Information
Now that you have your travel documentation sorted, it's time to book your flight! Calgary International Airport (YYC) welcomes millions of visitors to Calgary each year with direct flights from USA, Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and Central America. 

Calgary International Airport (YYC) is connected to the City of Calgary and the region by a variety of scheduled and on-demand ground transportation options. The BMO Centre, and neighboring hotels, are a 25-30 minute drive from the airport. Explore the choices to figure out which ground transportation option is best for you.

Hotel Information
The discounted AZA rate is only available for registered attendees and exhibitors. You will find your unique reservation link in your registration confirmation email. The hotel will not be accepting call-in reservations. If this policy causes an issue, please contact AZA Meetings Department. The below-discounted rates are only available until the room block sells out, or Friday, August 16, whichever comes first.

All meetings, program sessions, General Session events, and Exhibit Hall events will take place at the BMO Centre on Stampede Park. Accreditation Hearings and Executive Leadership Development Program will take place at the Calgary Marriott Downtown.

Important! There are two Convention Centers located in Calgary. The AZA Annual Conference will take place at the BMO Centre on Stampede Park, not the Calgary TELUS Convention Centre. The BMO Centre on Stampede Park is located about a mile from the downtown hotels. This will require a 15-20 minute walk or a train ride. See more information below about the Calgary Light Rail Transit.

AZA has contracted with these four official hotel partners. We appreciate your support in booking within the AZA hotel room blocks, which support the Association in allowing us to offer a high-quality conference experience for all. You can still earn hotel loyalty points when booking through the official reservation links that will be provided in your registration confirmation email. Participant hotels and individual loyalty program rules and requirements still apply and are subject to changes at any time without notice. Hotel prices are listed in CAD. The Bank of Canada exchange rates are published each business day by 4:30 pm ET.

Please be aware that if you are contacted by a travel company or hotel discounter encouraging you to book your hotel reservation, these kinds of emails and calls are SCAMS. AZA does not partner with any hotel or travel companies and you will never be solicited to book your hotel reservation. Please only make hotel reservations from links provided to you by AZA. While Paramount Convention Services and eShow will reach out directly to exhibiting companies about their services, AZA hotel partners will not.

Getting Around Calgary - Light Rail Transit
Getting around Calgary is easy with a variety of transportation options to get you to your destination and to help you explore the city. Their public transit network consists of buses and two Light Rail Transit (LRT) lines, known as the CTrain. Registered Attendees will be able to ride the trains for free using their badge as "proof of purchase". Fares for adults are $3.60 ($11.25 for a day pass); fares for youth (6-17) are $2.45 ($8.25 for a day pass); children five and under are free. It is free to ride the CTrain throughout the downtown core between City Hall Station and Downtown West/Kerby Station on either line and in any direction, but proof of fare must be carried as soon as a train departs the 7th Avenue Free Fare Zone. You must carry your conference badge with you on the CTrain, however you do not need to wear it. Transit routes operate on varying schedules throughout the city.

For complete information and to plan a trip, visit Calgary Transit, or use Google Maps, which is completely integrated with Calgary’s transit system. You may also view the CTrain Map (PDF).
