"The support of your technical staff was outstanding. They worked with our director to prepare and execute the intricate lighting, audio and video presentations flawlessly...Our overall organizational experience was excellent. We felt to be in good hands right from the start. [Your staff] was always there when we had questions or needed changes to be made...Thank you again for being so supportive allowing us to showcase our choir in such a memorable way."

Klaus Zahnd, President, Yodel Club Heimattreu

"We held the 2016 Calgary Peace Prize Ceremony at the Bella Concert Hall. Throughout the whole process, whether it was booking the venue, ticket applications, developing a stage plot, or technical requirements, the Event and Theatre Services team provided excellent support and service. They addressed all of our questions and needs in a timely, professional and helpful manner. We are thankful for all of their wonderful work! The facilities were top class and our event went ahead without a hitch."

The Peace Studies Initiative

"Our involvement with the MRU staff was outstanding from start to finish. Every effort was made to ensure that our experience was pleasant and successful. Constant updates and communication regarding contracts, dates, etc. ensured that the process for booking the Bella Concert Hall was stress-free. Response times to questions and inquires was immediate as the staff worked diligently to guarantee our experience was a positive one with MRU. As well, the tech and stage crew were outstanding. The crew ensured that they understood exactly what it was that we wanted in order to create the perfect show. I would not hesitate to book a venue at MRU again. Their exceptional customer service is unparalleled."

Leslie Goodwin, Assistant Principal, Alexander Ferguson School

"The event was a huge success. We enjoy booking with Mount Royal because of how smooth the process is from our end... Ross Glen Hall is a fantastic space. The food and bar were great. The guest really enjoyed the coffee being available right when they arrived, so thank you for accommodating that... I really appreciate the consistency from your team. I felt like there was no change in professionalism, knowledge, or assistance I received even though I dealt with different representatives. Thanks again for everything!"

Holly Kobzey, Coordinator, Hockey Development, Hockey Alberta

"We had an amazing 100% turnout, with even a few participants from Lethbridge! Everything at Mount Royal worked out well, and I can’t think of anything that you could improve. The projector etc. worked perfectly, and the class space was comfortable and easy to find. Our participants enjoyed the fact that they could have lunch on-site and socialize at the same time. We will be back! Thank you for all of your help setting this up!"

David O'Neill, Referee Development Officer, Alberta Soccer Association
