Spousal Program

We are thrilled to announce the 2019 IPEIA Spousal Program!!

Are you thinking of bringing your spouse to Banff but don’t want them to feel ignored while you attend the conference? For many years we have planned various activities to keep your spouse entertained during the day while you are hard at work.

This year, participants in our Spousal Program will spend Wednesday afternoon enjoying a three course lunch at the Maple Leaf Grill and Lounge in beautiful downtown Banff. Once lunch is complete there will be free time to take a walking tour in downtown Banff to enjoy the local hospitality, do some well-deserved shopping or simply take in the scenic views.

On Thursday the participants will have their choice to do one of the following glorious activities: *Please note: these activities are first come first served due to the limited amount of space available.

The first activity planned is a Paint Event which will be hosted at The Banff Centre. Be prepared to create your own masterpiece as a keepsake from this magnificent event. The group size is limited to 13 participants and will run from 10:30am to 1:30pm.
The second activity planned is a snowshoe tour at Marble Canyon. (Maximum group size is 12 people). This event will run from 10:00am to 1:30pm and will allow you to enjoy the scenic Banff National Park views from a unique perspective.
Once both of these activities are complete the two groups will travel and meet up at the Banff Hot Springs for a relaxing end to their day.

Registration in the Spousal Program also includes the Exhibitor’s Appreciation Event and the Thursday Networking Event.

This amazing opportunity is only available to the first 25 people to register their spouses. To register your spouse,
