Welcome to the CTCC, a place of possibility. This is a sophisticated destination where ideas come to life and connections deepen. Where moments become lasting memories—and a dedicated team of visionaries transforms our vibrant, connected spaces into unforgettable experiences.

Peeling back the curtain, you’ll see our commitment. We focus on enriching each guest’s journey. Every interaction is a chance to exceed expectations and create joy that lasts long after the event is over. Stepping into the CTCC, you’re entering a place that’s designed to leave you with something more. Something special. This is where possibility becomes reality.

Our mission is to create experiences that empower communities to connect, share, celebrate, and grow.

Our history. Your story.

It’s hard to believe that our contemporary centre opened in 1974. A first of its kind, we were Canada’s only purpose-built convention centre at the time. Until 2000, we operated solely out of our South Building until the addition of our North Building, significantly increasing our capacity as one of the largest venues in Alberta.

Fifty years in and our passion for hosting is steadfast. We love what we do. We’ve opened our doors to prime ministers and presidents, royalty, pop icons and world-changing entrepreneurs. Through it all, a core operating philosophy shines bright. Regardless of who you are outside our doors, when you’re here, you’re one of the most important people in the world.

The Calgary TELUS Convention Centre hosts live events, facilitating connections and promoting the convergence of ideas that may have never existed – taking inspiration from Wîchîspa (Win-Cheese-Pah), Guts’ists’i (Goo-tist-see) and Moh’kinsstis (Moh-gihn-s-tis), the confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers.

Our collective responsibility

Responsible impact isn’t just a catchphrase, it’s how we operate. Through our events, experiences, and operations, we purposefully create a better world.

Our collective responsibility includes acting on principle and doing what’s right—not because it’s easy, but because—through our actions—we believe we can help build a world of balance, belonging and equity. That goes beyond our walls and into our communities as we work to enrich the lives of others and minimize our environmental impact.

Each day is an opportunity to create a safe gathering place for all who enter our doors.
