"Working with the professionals at Queen’s Event Services allows us to focus on the strategy and engagement purpose of our event, rather than stressing over the logistical details. Queen’s Event services also makes sure that we are well aligned with important values like sustainability, special dietary needs, cultural observances, and knowing that the cost is being reinvested on campus while also saving on taxes, gratuities, and other external catering charges. For a recent art unveiling event in our Department, the Event Services team supported the custom curation of a unique menu to suit our event goals and attendees are still talking about how delicious it was!"

All inclusive campus events…meet, dine, and stay!

"We hold national corporate conferences yearly and in 2015 we chose Queen’s University, Kingston Ontario to hold our 20th Anniversary Conference!  With 450 delegates, Queen’s was able to provide on campus accommodations, meals, plenary space, trade show space, final banquet and even a sports field where we held our Pita Olympics!  The convenience of having everything located in one area was amazing.   The team at Queen’s made everything work from start to finish.  Our delegates also enjoyed all that Kingston has to offer; Cruising the 1000 islands to golfing near Lake Ontario, Kingston is a FANTASTIC place to hold a conference."
