Meetings

Whether your meeting is for five or 50 times that, the Calgary Zoo offers a wide choice of unique venues and creative cuisine prepared by the Zoo’s chefs – wild animals too. Where else can you watch wildlife while on a 10-minute coffee break? Another perk: We don’t charge GST because we’re a registered charity. The money you spend on your meeting helps us care for the animals.

Host One in a Wild Setting

Host your company’s breakfast at the zoo. We guarantee that your guests won’t be the only ones who are bright eyed and bushy tailed. Our animals are up early too! Especially common for associations, your agenda can start the day off strong with a catered breakfast at any number of venues on the grounds.

Strategy Sessions

Sometimes a natural environment helps to simulate fresh ideas and innovative thinking. Your audience might just get extra inspired to participate while you’re presenting in a new environment.

Multi-day Conferences

With indoor, tropical gardens and a large outdoor terrace at the ENMAX Conservatory, your conference attendees will enjoy showing up one day after another for a multi-day conference. Add in savoury lunch buffets and interpretive breaks at exhibits like the Penguin Plunge, and conferences at the zoo can’t be beat.

Town Halls

With great reception and banquet areas, an auditorium and plenty of space and activities for team building, the zoo is a perfect place to host a town hall or annual company-wide meeting. We apologize if the office looks far less inviting the day after!

Make It a Green Meeting

We take our commitment to conservation seriously at the zoo, even when it comes to hosting meetings. We’ve achieved Green Key 3 status within the eco-rating program, so you can hold your meeting here knowing it’s being executed in a sustainable manner. You can also be assured your meeting is supporting our conservation mandate as well.

If flamingos don’t eat pink food, their feathers turn white. At the zoo, special diet supplements keep the birds’ feathers vibrant.
