Networking, Parties & Events


Every year, BANFF offers a unique set of networking opportunities custom-built to grow your professional network, forge partnerships, and catalyze new business. Our 2019 lineup included:


Delegates met new business partners and reunited with old friends and contacts from around the world over hors d’oeuvres. They enjoyed hand-selected wines and locally brewed beers at the annual Festival kick-off.

The legendary BANFF BBQ came back with a bang! Delegates celebrated around massive bonfires and danced to live music at Mount View BBQ’s rustic roundhouses, which overlook the spectacular Canadian Rockies. The event was also supported by BMG Production Music and STARZ.


Cheers to our Rockies nominees & honourees! The 2019 Rockies Awards International Program Competition cocktail, in partnership with the Canadian Music Publishers Association and the Rockie Awards Gala cocktail, in partnership with Netflix offered an opportunity enjoy complimentary cocktails, hobnob with the nominees/honourees, and celebrate the accomplishments of all.
