A glimmering emerald lake, frozen for the season, framed by snow-capped glaciers — the home of a Canadian icon, historic Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, a luxurious corporate getaway. Groups gather here where fresh air renews and natural beauty inspires. Meetings are turn-key in exquisite heritage ballrooms updated with the modern amenities today’s conferences demand. At Lake Louise, brainstorming sessions spark up just about anywhere: skating past an ice castle, on sleigh rides across a lakeside trail, over a blazing bonfire at the Brewster Dance Barns or while chilling with colleagues at the hotel’s acclaimed ice bar. Ideally suited for intimate retreats for just a few, or a full chateau buy-out, the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise’s unique programming infuses “mindfulness” into meetings, making group gatherings here as inspired as the surroundings.

Planning Essentials

Get a good night’s sleep

After a day of fresh air, adventure or connecting with colleagues, visitors retreat to fully renovated luxury guest rooms, suites and specialty rooms with breathtaking views of the lake or surrounding mountains. It’s the elegance of a historic grand hotel blended with modern conveniences and Fairmont's famous warm, welcoming service.

Stretch your budget in Canada

It’s a fact. Event dollars go further in Canada. With the Canadian dollar hovering between 25 and 30% below the U.S. dollar, planners are encouraged to enhance their meeting experience here. Dollars saved on the program requirements can translate into more bells and whistles or your bottom line, you pick.
