People, Place, and Public Engagement 2018 is being held at Memorial University’s new location on historic Signal Hill.
Previously a hotel and local landmark, our facility was purchased by Memorial in 2013 as a hub for public engagement and innovation. Since then, the site has undergone significant redevelopment.
We believe that our conference centre has one of the most stunning views in Canada, overlooking St. John’s harbour, with nothing but glass separating guests from the seabirds, cliffs, and wild blueberries of Signal Hill. With hiking trails and lookouts steps from our door, and all the culture and food of downtown St. John’s nearby, we don’t think conference spaces get much more inspiring than this.
