Welcome to Downton Mensa AG - Mensa Canada's 2018 Annual Gathering

Mensa Calgary will be proudly hosting Mensa Canada’s 2018 Annual Gathering (AG) from August 3-6, 2018. Mensans, from near and far, are cordially invited to join our AG festivities in downtown Calgary. Dynamic Calgary is the third largest municipality in Canada and is one of the most livable cities on the planet. Situated in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies our Calgary location provides you with an opportunity to further explore the region either before or after the AG. Mensa Calgary knows how to throw a Mensa gathering and knows you will love our theme – Downton Abbey. Do not miss the fun and see why Mensa Calgary won Alberta Tourism awards for one of its previous AGs!

The Fairmont Palliser Hotel is located in the heart of downtown Calgary. Situated near the city’s business and financial district, the hotel is within walking distance to the city’s most exciting retail shopping, arts, culture and entertainment venues. This landmark building is rich in history and architecture having opened in 1914. It is a mere 20 km from the Calgary International Airport.

We’ve negotiated an exceptional room rate ($129 per room night + service charge + taxes) for AG participants. If you extend your stay before and after the AG this special group rate will be available from August 2 to 6, 2018.

Downton Mensa

The 2018 Annual Gathering (AG) borrows its theme from the well-known British historical period drama series “Downton Abbey”. The post-Titanic era is a natural for the fabulous Fairmont Palliser Hotel setting. Join us for the AG and rub shoulders with Mensans in their post-Edwardian (1912 -1926) finery.
