Welcome to Calgary!
A visit to Calgary is an opportunity to experience something amazing; world-renowned cultural attractions, excellent restaurants, shopping destination and acres of urban parkland. Community spirit is what truly sets Calgary apart. No matter where you go, you will see a unique brand of western hospitality in action. If you choose to accompany a registered attendee at ACE as their Guest, for a reduced price, your registration in the Guest Program affords you full access to the conference and an opportunity to attend the Opening Ceremony, Refreshment Breaks and End of Day Receptions in the Exhibition with the person you accompany, or branch out on your own to see the city sights!
A registered Guest at ACE may visit the Guest Hospitality Suite, where volunteers from the Guest Program Committee will be on hand to answer questions about the Calgary area. Let us help you get acquainted with our city and the surrounding area. The Hospitality Suite is also a great place to sit, relax and enjoy refreshments or to meet up with others who accompany a professional in the geosciences to ACE in Calgary.
