The 2017 NAVSA annual conference will be held from November 16-18 in Banff National Park, Alberta at the Banff Centre for the Arts. Situated on the side of Tunnel Mountain, the Banff Centre offers spectacular views, superior creative and professional development centres and venues, and three onsite restaurants offering award-winning local cuisine.
Beyond the Centre, Banff National Park provides a wide range of dining options. On the famous Banff Avenue, for example, visitors have the opportunity to explore a variety of culinary experiences ranging from cheap eats to seven-course tasting menus.

If you’re feeling adventurous, try one of the more scenic dining experiences away from Banff Ave and visit the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, enjoy the Banff Upper Hot Springs, or take the Banff Gondola to the summit of Sulphur Mountain.
