The Banff Centre is located in Alberta’s beautiful little alpine town of Banff. If you're looking to spend a summer or winter season living and working within a property filled with events, enjoyment and a wonderful social atmosphere, this is the place you want to be. Over 8,000 artists and leaders from within Canada and around the world participate in programs offered at the Banff Centre each year, including; Performance Arts, Creative Arts, Film & Media in both the indoor and outdoor arenas - You'll have to check out the events calendar and make sure you check them all out! 

  • The Banff Centre was founded in 1933 as the Banff School of Drama, this changed in 1935 to the Banff School of Fine Arts - Interesting! 
  • In 1970 it renamed to the Banff Centre of Continuing Education
  • Every year 8,000 artists, leaders and researchers from across Canada and around the World participate in programs here

We hosted an Annual Scientific Meeting for one of our clients at the Banff Centre in July 2014. The setting of the Banff Centre is spectacular and the meeting space worked very well for our group. The facility is modern, large and open and is designed in such a way so that delegates are aware of and can enjoy the beauty of the landscape even when they are indoors. I highly recommend the Banff Centre.

The Banff Centre is truly an amazing experience. The facilities, food and staff are excellent, and the overall feeling of relaxation and comfort is great. I would definitely recommend this venue for company retreats or conferences.
