WHY CALGARY? ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT Proud skyscrapers of glass, concrete and steel reveal the economic drivers in this vibrant, growing city. Over 125 corporate headquarters in the energy, technology, finance, manufacturing and logistic sectors call Calgary home. One more plus—there's no sales tax in the entire province. GETTIN' AROUND Calgary's street grid is easy to navigate with corporate headquarters concentrated in the downtown core. Major museums, convention centres, hotels and shopping are linked by light rail transit stops, and if you're inclined to walk, the +15 walkways interconnect most of the buildings in the city centre. Getting to Calgary from the rest of Canada is easy. Daily service from all major Canadian hubs operate to and from Calgary International Airport —only a 20-minute cab ride from the city core. COOL UNIQUE VENUES Some of Calgary's finest attractions do double duty as special venues for groups. The Glenbow Museum, the Calgary Zoo and the glass-enclosed Devonian Gardens offer spectacular spaces for events, galas or Meetings + Conventions Calgary 120 – 9th Avenue SE Calgary, Alberta, Canada T2G 0P3 T. 403 261 8543 F. 403 261 8594 Toll Free in N.
