About Winnipeg

Downtown Winnipeg

Winnipeg, Manitoba is located in Treaty 1 Territory and the Homeland of the Métis. Vogue calls Winnipeg “an absolute must-visit destination,” and National Geographic calls it “one of the best trips on earth.”

This year’s conference is hosted at the downtown RBC Convention Centre, surrounded by world-class hotels, restaurants, art galleries and museums. Attractions include the Assiniboine Park, where polar bears swim overhead, the Canadian Museum of Human Rights, where visitors can take an interactive journey through humanity’s struggles and triumphs, and The Forks, a unique licensed public market that foodies will fawn over.
