Totally Devoted to You
If your last company retreat was such a hit that it’s been water cooler fodder at the office for weeks, it’s a safe bet your convention location struck all the right notes. Popular with the business-convention set, Red Deer happens to have a hat trick of reasons to host your next special event: affordable accommodations, exceptional and efficient service, and a prime setting – it’s in the middle of everywhere. Whether it’s a small meeting or a large convention, the City and its corporate community have facilities that are spacious and abundant with amenities and hospitality to make sure everything is taken care of.
The Sheraton Red Deer Hotel provides 241 guestrooms and suites and 55,000 square-feet of meeting space including a 34,000 square-foot Special Events Centre. “We host some of the largest regional conferences in Alberta,” says Lisa Francoeur, director of sales & marketing. “Our Special Events Centre is a beautiful room for trade shows or elegant banquets up to 1,600 people.”
Baymont Inn & Suites offers 233 tastefully appointed guest rooms, including 32 suites and 60 business class rooms that accompany 11 meeting rooms.
The Ramada offers a variety of room types and perfect for sports teams or small gatherings with their pool, water slide and exercise facility.
“Meeting in a larger city can be difficult to plan an outing for a group with logistics for transportation and costs of events, but meeting in Red Deer, everything is 10 minutes away (at the most) and you’ll find lots to do,” says Francoeur. “Cheer on the Rebels at the ENMAX Centrium, enjoy a play at one of our theatres, take a carriage ride at Heritage Ranch, or dance the night away at Billy Bob’s Country Dance Hall. Conference organizers tell us they receive a better attendance at their conferences in Red Deer because it is so easy for attendees to get here and to get around.”
