The Shaw Conference Centre has built an international reputation for its expertise in hosting events of all forms and sizes. If you’ve felt a buzz while visiting, it’s not just because of the atmosphere within the building. Outside, you’ll find hundred of plants being pollinated by the Shaw Conference Centre’s very own bees.
We have a long-standing love affair with professional sports in Edmonton. Our major sports teams have been setting records and building a sports legacy since the 1980s.
We’re proud to be the home of the Edmonton Oilers, Edmonton Eskimos, FC Edmonton and the Edmonton Prospects, as well as our nationally recognized post-secondary sports teams.
And we have the same pride in hosting major competitions with the best athletes from around the world. We’ve been a major host of The Canadian Finals Rodeo, Red Bull Crashed Ice, FIFA Women’s World Cup, ITU World Triathlon, Tour of Alberta, FISE, and more.
We know what it takes to deliver the extraordinary; we challenge ourselves to think differently, while grounding the experience in attentive support from bid to event execution.
