Hybrid Conference

Winnipeg will host the first ever Hybrid conference which will allow attendance both in person and through virtual online connection. Conference fees will reflect these different options allowing greater participation from across the country and around the world. Satelite locations (think CPE Groups, Spiritual Care Departments, regional gatherings, etc.) can also bring together attendees to connect virtually at a reduced registration fee.  

For the first time, the conference will be hosted on a University campus. The large conference meeting spaces have state of the art technology and are ideal for learning and education events.  In-person attendees will have individual rooms at a modern (built in 2011) high rise student residence, and will be pleasently surprised by its amenities, amazing views, and common lounge areas on each floor. 

Delicious meals will be provided by the University Kitchen services on site, while nurtitian breaks during the conference will serve beverage and snacks as per regular conference schedules.

Surprisingly Affordable

Because of the cost savings in accomodation, food and beverage and using modern virtual conference technology, you will be pleased to see how reasonable it can be to attend the conference either in person or virtually.
