All flights to Calgary arrive at the Calgary International Airport. Upon arrival, many hotels provide shuttle services between the downtown core and airport. There are also options to hire a taxi, limo or purchase a ticket on a private shuttle service.

While there is no consistent train travel into Calgary, various independent tour providers run specialty train service between Canada’s biggest cities and Calgary.

Attendees arriving by car will take either the Queen Elizabeth II highway (running north to south), or the Trans-Canada highway (running east to west). Calgary is a three-hour drive from the Montana border, and about 3 hours south of Edmonton.
