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.

Rooms are now sold out for May 27 to 30 inclusive, however do call Lloyd Hall at 1-800-884-7574 to inquire about cancellations.

We have secured a limited number of rooms at the Canalta Lodge. All reservations must be made directly through the hotel (403-760-7785 or by email: res@banffvoyagerinn.com and identify yourself as being part of the IPAC Canada Conference) by April 27, 2018, and are subject to availability. Room rates start at $189.00 per night (additional fees and taxes apply, inquire within). Breakfast and parking are included.
