2021 Fall Convention & Tradeshow
The RMA Fall Convention will take place November 23 – 26, 2021, at the Edmonton EXPO Centre. The RMA tradeshow will be on Tuesday, November 23 to provide you with an opportunity to connect with our supplier partners as you consider your budgets and projects for the upcoming year.
We look forward to welcoming our newly elected officials and greeting our returning members as we gear up for four days of an action-packed agenda. RMA has not hosted a physical conference in two years, and we are excited to welcome you all in November.
If you have any questions about Fall Convention, please contact Cindy Carstairs, Administrative and Convention Coordinator, by phone 780.955.4095 or by email.
Complimentary shuttle buses will be running daily between our preferred convention hotels and the Edmonton EXPO Centre. Our preferred convention hotels are the Westin, Fairmont Hotel MacDonald, Courtyard Marriot, Chateau Lacombe, and the Sandman Signature (formerly Sutton Place). We are using ETS for our shuttle bus service, and the shuttle pick ups are ETS stops located on the main roads outside the convention hotels. Please see the shuttle bus schedule a map for the pickup locations. Masks must be worn on the shuttle buses.
The loop between convention hotels and the EXPO will take approximately 20 minutes, so please ensure that you hop on a bus early to get over to the venue in time for breakfast. Note: shuttle buses are only running during peak times, not all day.
For delegates attending the EOEP courses on Monday and Tuesday morning at the EXPO: unfortunately, shuttle buses are not running but on-site parking is available for $15.

The 2021 Fall Convention & Tradeshow will be hosted this year at the Edmonton EXPO Centre, which is participating in the Government of Alberta’s Restriction Exemption Program. As such, there are several rules that will be followed to ensure the event is safe for all.
To enter the facility, you will need to show proof of vaccination in the form of the QR code available at alberta.ca/covidrecords. The code will be the only proof of vaccination accepted after November 15, 2021. Albertans can download, screenshot, or print it. If you do not have access to cell phones or computers, you can get a printed QR code at any registry.
If you are unvaccinated, there will be on-site testing during the event. The cost of the testing will be the responsibility of the attendee to pay. Credit cards will be accepted.
Once inside the the facility, face masks will be required. A face mask is a medical or non-medical mask that covers a person’s nose, mouth, and chin. The Government of Alberta does not consider face shields to be an acceptable alternative to a mask and may not be worn on their own. You may remove your masks only when eating or drinking in designated areas.
For more information, please read the EXPO Centre’s health and safety document.
