Edmonton Convention Centre


Getting Here

It’s impossible to miss the Shaw Conference Centre as you approach from the North Saskatchewan River Valley, but the most convenient entrance will depend on how you choose to arrive. The convention centre sits between 97 Street and Jasper Avenue, and Grierson Hill NW, with visitor entrances accessible at both the top and bottom of the hill.

Arriving by Foot
