About us

Thank you for your interest in Explore Edmonton Corporation. We are Edmonton’s Destination Management and Marketing Organization (DMMO).

Explore Edmonton respectfully acknowledges that we are located within Treaty 6 territory and Métis Nation of Alberta Region 4. We acknowledge this land as the traditional home for many Indigenous Peoples including the Cree, Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Dene, Saulteaux, Anishinaabe, Inuit and many others whose histories, languages, and cultures continue to influence our vibrant community.

What We Do

Connection. With it we thrive. Without it, we cannot grow. At Explore Edmonton, we’re all about connection. Our team has created a unique identity for Edmonton and developed a strong reputation in the eyes of people around the world who are looking for opportunity here. Through the relationships we create with our partners and stakeholders, we showcase our city’s capabilities, strengthen our global connections, and create diverse opportunities for investment in local industries. And we have a lot of fun doing it!

Explore Edmonton energizes the lives of all Edmontonians. By bringing in major events, we generate tourism dollars that support local businesses, help businesses attract talent by increasing the vibrancy of the city, and create a more compelling argument for improving city infrastructure, which benefits everyone. Our signature events—K-Days, FarmFair International, and the Edmonton Pro Rodeo—bring the community together and are enjoyed by people of all ages, year after year.

We connect people who want to hold events to our award-winning venues. Our Edmonton Convention Centre is recognized as one of the five best venues in North America and the Edmonton EXPO Centre is the largest venue of its kind in western Canada. The size and versatility of our venues allows for world-class events, unlimited opportunity, and more profitability for our partners.

Connection. It’s what drives us. We look forward to connecting with you and to continuing to help our city thrive on the world stage. Explore Edmonton!
