Walking and cycling are by far the most convenient ways to get around the conference main hotel and workshop venues. You’ll be treated to incredible views of the Red River, historic neighbourhoods, and some of Canada’s most iconic architecture along the way – much of which cannot be witnessed from a car, bus or taxi. If you are in need of motorized transport you can access this from one of the city bus lines, a taxi, or by renting a car.Read More
