1. WWW2007 less than a month away!

WWW2007 starts in less than four weeks! Over 750 attendees have registered already, and we are expecting 1000 by conference time.

The WWW2007 organizers look forward to welcoming you in Banff for a great conference and many memorable experiences. In this issue of the newsletter we bring you a short list of attractions and options for dining in the town of Banff itself. The next issue will bring other options at short drive distances from the town.

2. What to do in Banff?

During the day:

At night, most of Banff's larger hotels and restaurants offer some form of entertainment. However, for a more lively selection, head to downtown Banff Avenue. This is a brief list of the most popular destinations in town:

Note that there is some construction on Banff Avenue during Summer 2007, which will disrupt some of the traffic flow for cars and people. However, there are many one-of-a-kind bonus activities planned for Banff this summer to help compensate for the construction-related issues.

3. Where to eat in Banff?

Banff offers a great variety of dining options which are sure to please those interested in the best Alpine cuisine as well as those on a budget. The most popular destination is Banff Avenue, but several fine restaurants are located in the best hotels.

Regardless of your dining choices, advance reservations are highly recommended, since May is the start of "high season" for tourists in Banff.

Here are a few examples to tempt your palate:

For those on a tighter budget:

4. Hotel space very tight

The room block for WWW2007 conference attendees at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, as well as in many of the overflow hotels, is almost completely full. If you have not made your reservation yet, please hurry. The Banff Springs is a truly remarkable and unique hotel, which will make your stay in Banff memorable.

If you have trouble getting the nights you need, then please try one of the 10 overflow hotels for WWW2007.

The WWW2007 Newsletter will be sent periodically, roughly once every month leading up to the conference. The newsletters will be archived at the 'Media and Publicity' section of the WWW2007 Web site.
