SWANA 2022 – Sponsorship Brochure

We are very excited to be hosting the 2022 SWANA Canadian Symposium at the Fairmont Banff Springs. It has been 12 years since we hosted this Symposium in Banff and we believe the beautiful Canadian Rockies, the iconic Fairmont Banff Springs as our host hotel and an incredible program will be sure to attract colleagues from across North America.

The past 16 months has created a lot of uncertainty but we are planning for over 350 delegates, 50 exhibitors and industry leading speakers from the waste and recycling sectors. The Symposium is paired with a tradeshow allowing clients and vendors to reconnect in a beautiful setting with many networking opportunities to explore new opportunities.

This event is hosted by the Northern Lights Chapter which has an amazing following from municipalities and private companies alike. We are hoping that you will see value in partnering with us on this important event. Please take a look at the sponsorship information listed here – we are happy to discuss ideas and opportunities with you!

As a sponsor you’ll be leading us up new trails and building new paths for your clients, and colleagues.
