Region of Waterloo
Waterloo Region is one of Canada’s fastest growing communities. Located in the heart of southwestern Ontario, Waterloo Region is a balance of new and old, rural and urban, nature and technology. The Region of Waterloo is made up of three cities – Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo, and four townships – North Dumfries, Wellesley, Wilmot and Woolwich each with its own unique charm and attraction.
Over 560,000 people call Waterloo Region home. Many innovative, leading-edge companies and educational institutions are also located here including Google, Toyota, COM DEV and OpenText, the University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University, Conestoga College, and the Perimeter Institute of Theoretical Physics. Waterloo Region also hosts the largest annual Oktoberfest celebration in the world outside of Germany. For business or pleasure Waterloo Region is an exceptional place to live and work.
The Region of Waterloo International Airport (YKF) pleased to host the 2017 AMCO Convention. YKF is located 100 kilometers west of Toronto and only 45 minutes from Toronto Pearson International Airport. See you in October!
Holiday Inn Kitchener-Cambridge Hotel and Conference Centre
Accommodations have been booked at the Holiday Inn Kitchener- Cambridge located at 30 Fairway Rd. South in Kitchener. Please call 519-893-1211 and ask for the Airport Management Council of Ontario Group Block.
Whether you’re coming to Kitchener/Waterloo area for business or just for fun, your room at the Holiday Inn will be your personal retreat. With complimentary parking and high-speed internet, you’ll have room to work, relax and make the most of your day. While you’re here take a dip in our indoor swimming pool, work up a sweat in our Fitness centre or relax with a refreshing beverage at Embers lounge.
Puslinch Golf Course
Built in 1962, Puslinch Lake has stood the test of time while challenging and developing players such as Ian Leggatt, winner of the 2002 Tucson Open of the P.G.A. tour.
With our tree lined fairways and small, yet undulating greens, accuracy is a must. But don’t be afraid to pull the driver out and let it rip!
Our signature 15th hole, a 157 yard par 3, offers all levels of golfers an unexpected challenge. While making your club selection from the elevated tee, the green appears very scenic and inviting. Once you arrive on the contoured green you will realize the premium that is placed on accuracy and proper club selection. “Par or better and you have met the challenge!”
Monday Dinner Venue
When many Germans immigrated to the Kitchener-Waterloo area, it was natural that they would want to continue this festive tradition. While many clubs held their own private Oktoberfest celebration (the Schwaben Club laying claim to the first of these in 1961), the first public festivities took place at the Concordia Club in 1969.
K-W Oktoberfest today is the second largest Bavarian festival in the world, second only to the original in Munich itself. For 10 days in October, thousands of visitors and residents take part in family and cultural events, and visit many of the 20+ Festhallen set up throughout the Region. One of the highlights of the festival would certainly be the televised Thanksgiving Day Parade — the largest in Canada.
Waterloo Region Museum
Banquet Dinner Venue
Waterloo Region Museum is the largest community museum in Ontario with two indoor museum galleries and a 60 acre living history exhibit called Doon Heritage Village that is open seasonally from May 1 to December 23.
Our main museum gallery tells the story of Waterloo Region and our feature gallery showcases local and travelling exhibits from around the world.
Located on the second floor of the main museum gallery is the Waterloo Region Hall of Fame. The second floor also contains a War Memorial with a virtual list of the names of all those from Waterloo County/Region who have given their lives for their country.
The annual trade show is one of the main events at Convention. With vendors from companies who serve the airport industry, you are sure to make lasting connections to obtain the services you need.
