Re: 2019 Civitan International Annual Convention

Dear Mary, On behalf of the Edmonton Tourism, our industry partners and Kyla Knudson of Travel Alberta it is our pleasure to invite the 2019 Civitan International Annual Convention to Edmonton. Alberta’s capital city is ready to welcome your guests to their prestigious event and we are certain this proposal creates the framework for the most memorable event ever. There’s a uniqueness to how we do ordinary things in Edmonton, a region home to over one million friendly and welcoming people. Education might be the goal of your conference, but it’s the experience of the destination that attendees talk about for years to come. After a day of inspiration at your event, the list of truly awesome things to do Edmonton will leave your delegates wishing they had more free time. Alberta is the only province in Canada without a provincial sales tax—benefitting your core budget, and the wallets of your delegates looking to shop and explore Edmonton—so every member gets more from their time in Edmonton! In this package you will see that your entire conference can fit into the Shaw Conference Centre for the 2019 Civitan International Annual Convention. Also, we are pleased to offer a combination of hotel properties in the downtown area to comfortably accommodate your guests. All of the included hotels are within a close 2km proximity to the Shaw Conference Centre and some have direct access to the heated pedway path for transportation to and from meetings. By contracting the Shaw Conference Centre and at least two hotels we are also very happy to advise that Civitan would be eligible for our Edmonton Advantage funding program which we have outlined further in this letter on page two. Lastly, we are excited to present a selection of offsite venue options for your consideration. We hope they will be a great starting point for planning the entertainment components of your program . Mary, please know the City of Edmonton is already excited by the opportunity to play host to your delegates in 2019 and we very much look forward to welcoming you to the Alberta Capital Region. Not only does Edmonton have the product, people and price, you have our commitment and that of our industry partners and citizens to deliver an experience that will not soon be forgotten.

Kind regards,

Anna Tilly Business Development Manager, Meetings & Conventions
