accommodations with convention space Saskatoon is fortunate to have many hotels that can host large groups for meetings and events, which ensures planning a conference where many people are coming from out of town refreshingly easy. Whether views of the river or downtown are desired, meals and coffee service, audio-visual equipment or specific table set-ups, hotel staff will work with their clients to ensure all their needs are met. Hosting an event in the same hotel where guests will be staying makes it convenient and stress free for organizers and delegates. As always, beautiful Saskatoon is steps away waiting to be explored.
