For a retreat, conference, executive meeting, awards presentation or any other gathering of up to 1000 guests anywhere within the Canadian Shield, you’ll want to consider the Nipissing University residence and conference services. Just 3.5 hours north of Toronto, centrally located between Ottawa to the east and Sudbury to the west, you’ll find an extraordinarily tranquil university setting suitable for any gathering, conference or event.
The Nipissing campus rests upon a beautiful escarpment between two freshwater lakes. Easily accessible by both plane and train, this wonderful venue has meeting facilities available year-round, and can welcome larger overnight groups of up to 1000 beginning in May, through mid-August. Nipissing prides themselves in providing quality affordable lodgings, along with exceptional and productive meeting facilities and services.
The classrooms are described as “stadium-style” and feature Internet access, as do the residence rooms. There are also computer labs. Nipissing was fortunate enough to receive funds for a $9.2 million dollar expansion.
Your guests will enjoy the new facilities afforded by this expansion! Cafeteria and sit-down catering are both available from the campus. Licensed bar service can also be provided, and catering of snacks, coffee service, and the like are likewise available. AV equipment for presentations and ceremonies is part and parcel of your conference. Simply tell your event coordinator what you need and they’ll see to it that those needs are handily accommodated.
Getting to Nipissing is both easy and fun. The largest airport north of Toronto is right there in North Bay, at the Jack Garland Airport. This completely modern facility offers daily flights between North Bay and both Toronto and Ottawa (and beyond,) on Air Canada Jazz, Bearskin Airlines and Voyageur Airways. Of course you can drive as well. The scenery along the way is breathtakingly beautiful! More than a few prefer to take a relaxing train ride right on into town. North Bay’s O.N.T.C. Train Station is both clean and hospitable, open 24 hours a day, and less than 15 minutes away from the campus! (Ontario Northland provides regular service between campus and the train station.)
Groups and organizations of all kinds, public and private, have found the Nipissing University Residence & Conference Services far exceeded their expectations.
Take a look at what a couple recent event organizers had to say about their experiences at Nipissing:
“Out of the 6 information sessions we held, (our) staff said North Bay was the best” – Canadian Ministry of Health & Long Term Care
“The excellent service we received over the past 3 years makes Nipissing University the site for many more NCO conferences” – D. Bennison, Ontario Provincial Police
With recommendations like that, there’s really no question that Nipissing is the right choice in this area for your group, gathering or event. Peaceful, quality surroundings, convenient transportation, quality facilities and services and a warm welcome to go with it all! Contact Nipissing, speak with their sales and event team to schedule your upcoming event. See for yourself just how good it can get!
