Start your CAEM Conference off right by attending the Conference Kick Off Reception.  After 3 long years, this is the perfect opportunity to reconnect with colleagues from coast to coast and meet new connections.

Sponsored by Destination Toronto, the Conference Kick Off Reception is being held at one of Hamilton’s premier restaurants, The Diplomat.

Join us for 2 hours of fantastic hors d’ouevres, food stations, and cocktails in a relaxed and casual atmosphere.  Then afterwards you can choose one of the many restaurants in this area for dinner or you are more than welcome to remain at The Diplomat and enjoy their extensive drinks menu.


Monday Evening Reception and Dinner

After an inspiring first day of sessions and connections made at ExpoCAN, it will be time to unwind and relax at our Monday evening event, sponsored by The International Centre.

Stonewalls is one of Hamilton's top live music venues and the perfect place for our band for the evening  – The Test Icicles – to perform.

So prepare to kick back, relax and enjoy a fun night with great food, delicious drinks and live music.


Closing Night Celebration

Our Closing Night Celebration will take place at one of Hamilton’s most distinctive and historic venues.  Liuna Station, a former CN Rail station opened in 1931, will impress you with its classic style and excellent food.
