• On-site events including: decreased capacities, enhanced and increased cleaning and sanitization,directional procedures and personal protective equipment guidelines.
• Hosting hybrid events - remote/on-site

Members of the CES team are now taking bookings for the Emera Innovation Exchange and Johnson Geo Centre on Signal Hill Campus. Email to discuss how we can help shape an event that is successful and safe for both you and your attendees.

In advance of upcoming bookings please ensure event attendees read/complete the following:

• Participant self- assessment tool
• Memorial?s Campus Access Health and Safety Moment

“Working with Conference and Event Services (CES) was an excellent experience. We have several people who have health concerns and so we were quite conscious of the safety issues around a group gathering. The preparation by the CES team for our visit to the Emera Innovation Exchange was thorough and you could tell that everyone was focused on ensuring that our meetings ran efficiently, but also with proper safety protocols in place. When we arrived on site, all the safety elements we would have expected were in place, and our meetings went off without a hitch. If anyone is looking for a meeting location that offers excellent space, flexible A/V options, terrific food service, and that will also ensure your group is kept safe and sound, I would strongly recommend they reach out to the CES team.” Leigh Puddester, President, Instrumar Limited
