The Conference Venue

Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity

The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, formerly known as The Banff Centre, located in Banff, Alberta, was established in 1933 as the Banff School of Drama. It offers arts programs in the performing and fine arts, as well as leadership training. On June 23, 2016, Banff Centre announced a new name and released a new brand identity and strategic plan. It is now called Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, and its new mission is “to inspire artists and leaders to make their unique contribution to society.”

Venue Map


Banff is a 90-minute drive or shuttle from Calgary International Airport - shuttles may be booked via:
Brewster Banff Airport Express or Banff Airporter

Hotel room bookings do have a cancellation clause.  Many attendees take advantage of this feature and book their guest room in advance.  This is a good idea but please remember that every cancellation reduces the pick up on the room block that is secured for the event and creates potential for IPAC Canada to be charged significant attrition if the contracted number of rooms are not filled.  Before cancelling your guest room, please attempt to transfer the room to another attendee, or let us know before cancelling so we can attempt to fill the room.

Thank you for your consideration.

Warning for Attendees/Exhibitors

Infection Prevention and Control Canada has been made aware of a service provider of the name Exhibition Housing Services (EHS) which has contacted some of our valued exhibitors under the guise of working on behalf of IPAC Canada, and our conference, to offer hotel reservation services.

Please note that Exhibition Housing Services does NOT represent IPAC Canada or BUKSA Strategic Conference Services, our Conference Coordinator company, nor have we authorized EHS to act on our behalf, or on behalf of our exhibitors. It is our understanding that EHS charges excess booking fees for their services, and may immediately process your credit card for the full amount of your hotel reservation, in advance. If you are contacted by EHS we urge you to exercise caution before entering into any agreement with them.
