Venue and Directions

The 2016 conference is being hosted at the University of Alberta School of Business, located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. One of Canada’s largest Universities, the Alberta School of Business houses the Centre for Entrepreneurship and Family Enterprise—the Alberta School’s key centre for family business research activities.  Also of note is the Alberta School's Alberta Business Family Institute who offers educational programs and consulting for Alberta business families.

The conference will be held in the Stollery Centre, located on the 5th floor of the Business building on the University of Alberta Campus and is within walking distance of the hotel. The Business building and the U of A campus are nestled in the heart of Edmonton’s river valley, which offers over 160 KM of multi-use trails and is the largest urban green space in North America.  Edmonton’s historic old Strathcona area and the downtown core are within minutes by taxi from both the hotel and the Stollery centre.
