The Max Bell Building houses a 350-seat auditorium for talks, plus break out rooms and atrium space for vendor and career development workshops, as well as overflow seating for the talks (if required). Coffee breaks will take place in the atrium.
The Auditorium has seating for 350. This is where the morning and afternoon talks will take place, plus the break-out sessions and informal afternoon talks. Some of the latter can be given by the vendors to present their product.

Kinnear Center for Creativity and Innovation (view from Max Bell Building). The Husky rooms comprise three adjoining rooms for the poster sessions, lunches, dinners and vendor space. There will be 6’ x 4’ poster boards running in rows across the room. In addition, the back wall can be used for posters and vendor information to be displayed. The hallway and reception area will be available for the registration booth, afternoon refreshments, and vendor booths. Immediately outside the rooms is an open patio with seating available.
The Kinnear Center is located less than 50 meters from the Max Bell Building. The Husky rooms will be used for the poster sessions, lunches, and vendor booths. Poster boards will be placed perpendicular to the windows to allow for the view and natural light. We can offer vendor booths in front of the windows. Husky Rooms 1 and 2 are the pictured configuration; room 3 will give us additional space to what is shown here.
The Kinnear Center patio is located immediately outside the Husky rooms. This is the location of the welcome reception on Sunday night. This view is a major reason why people will want to come to Banff. We will have abundant seating, and this space is exclusive to our conference.
The Kinnear Center hall space is just outside the Husky rooms. This is an ideal spot for vendor booths. The granite bar will be where drinks are served.
The Kinnear Center entrance area will be used for registration. Behind the pillar with Banff written on it is where the first set of doors to the Husky rooms are located.
The Kinnear Centre Maclab Bistro provides coffee, breakfast, snacks, and discussion space. It is located beside the Husky rooms. It also has a bar open late (to 2:00 am) for those wishing to stay on site.
