MEETINGS & CONVENTIONS

Beauty, bands, and bandwidth… In perfect harmony.

Fredericton is proud to be a city of contrasts: Canada’s first free, community-wide wireless internet network nestled in a setting of heritage architecture, with a thriving music & cultural scene, and the majestic St. John River flowing beside downtown’s tree-lined streets. As the capital city of Canada’s only officially bilingual province, Fredericton delivers a fresh, Maritime experience filled with noteworthy celebrations and a little "je ne sais quoi" that you will long remember.

History & Technology

Once a British Garrison, wrought-iron fences still surround our Officer’s Square downtown park, and more than 88 km of scenic trails connect historic and cultural sites that include the Historic Garrison District, the Beaverbrook Art Gallery,  Government House, and many more.  

Rooted in our history and culture, we continue our commitment to staying ahead of the curve in 21st century  technology and smart thinking.

"Our February 2013 conference for CanSPEP is still receiving rave reviews from delegates more than six months later. This was truly a memorable experience and the hospitality of Fredericton was second to none. The collaboration of all the hospitality partners was unique and we were especially impressed with the venues, entertainment and cuisine. I would definitely recommend Fredericton to my clients and colleagues and look forward to the next opportunity to meet there!"

"During the TAC conference, we held our meetings at a variety of downtown locations in Fredericton but everything was seamless and sensational.   I was impressed with the level of cooperation between Fredericton Tourism, Fredericton Convention Centre, City’s hotels & facilities, and the suppliers in Fredericton.   It made our job of organizing and managing the conference in Fredericton a pleasant experience.   The city’s natural beauty, culture and maritime hospitality were just icing on the cake."

"The Canadian Association of Critical Care Nurses held its national annual conference Dynamics, in Fredericton, New Brunswick.  This conference was a grand success and well supported by Fredericton Tourism. The Fredericton Tourism staff assisted us to find the best venue to hold our conference as well as several special evening events.  They supported the event with information for the delegate bags, tourism information kiosks, ceremonial guards and were there to assist us along the way.  Most importantly, Fredericton's beautiful landscape and its warm Maritime hospitality, which was extended to our conference delegates, exceeded our expectations."
