St. John’s, Newfoundland
Rich and colourful, rugged and refined, St. John’s is the creative capital, and the beating cultural heart of the province. Woven into the history and tradition is a new wave of art, architecture, music, and cuisine all waiting for you to discover.
In Canada, the sunrise shines first on Newfoundland and Labrador. A city rich in culture, St. John’s honours tradition while embracing eclectic sophistication.
When in St. John’s, you hear your fair share of tall tales and yarns, and that’s not all. As you walk through the winding alleyways of our vibrant downtown, you’ll encounter fashionistas, chefs, musicians, and more, all elements of a colourful tapestry of experiences unfolding before your eyes. Have a thirst for adventure? It’s easily quenched by skirting the dramatic coastline on foot or enjoying a day on a boat on the bay having close encounters with humpback whales, puffins, or icebergs (and maybe all three!). Spectacular vistas, extraordinary culinary pleasures, and unique architecture are just tiny slices of an urban experience that will feel like no other. But it’s the colourful characters who are most memorable, in a place where strangers quickly become friends, and the local vernacular will delight and puzzle you all at once. Performances abound, sing along. Toe tapping is welcome. Colourful experiences. Colourful characters. Colourful encounters. Plan to arrive early or extend your stay after the conference and take time to visit this beautiful, busy, exhilarating city, with so much to see and do!

Don’t forget, you can benefit from our discounted hotel rates at the Delta Hotel for 3 days before and/or 3 days after the conference!
