Banff Session 2021

Every two years, the Alberta Association of Architects (AAA) hosts a conference that brings speakers from around the globe to share ideas, innovation and ingenuity. Taking place in the breathtaking remoteness of the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, Banff Session offers an arena of unencumbered dialogue that is free from workplace pressures and distractions.

After postponing Banff Session 2020 to aid in the COVID-19 risk mitigation measures implemented by the Alberta Chief Medical Officer in March of 2020; Banff Session 2021 re-invites you to consider the variety of perspectives influencing the design professions. Explore the ideas of the professionals you work alongside and the communities you work in. Look through the lenses of future users and past generations. Find inspiration by looking outward.

Banff Session and COVID-19

AAA Administration is working diligently with the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel to ensure that our event is held in compliance with all current social distancing and sanitation protocols. The health and safety of event attendees, guests, speakers, and exhibitors is paramount to the association and is a priority for all AAA events.

We are keeping the same conference theme, schedule, and making every effort to keep as many of the same speakers as possible. We are also working hard to control costs to ensure registration prices remain the same.
