Have some questions about attending one of our events? You've come to the right place! Here are some of our most often asked questions.
We are proud to host a variety of events that cater to a number of different industries and the businesses our members represent. Our events range from signature events, such as the annual Chamber Ball or Mayor’s Address, to educational workshops and advocacy events with political leaders! Most of our events also feature time for networking and connecting with fellow guests. For our current listing of events, view our events calendar here.
Tickets to Edmonton Chamber events are processed through ChamberMaster, our new online member platform introduced in October 2019. To register for an event, simply select register on the event page and a registration window will appear. If you are a member (and to receive members-only rates and options), log in using the email address currently on file with the Edmonton Chamber.
Note: If you have yet to log in to ChamberMaster, select Forgot Your Password and enter your email address on file. Your login details will then be sent to the email address provided. If you require further assistance, please email our membership team at firstname.lastname@example.org
After registering for an event online, an electronic ticket will be sent to the email address used to register. Just like a hockey game, play or concert, you must present your ticket at the event in order to enter. Each ticket has a QR code (similar to a barcode) which allows our system to register you upon entry.
When you arrive at the event, display your emailed ticket on your smartphone or provide a printout of your ticket so that the QR code can be scanned by a member of our team. For e-tickets, please ensure the QR code is visible and accessible by downloading the email graphics.
For the average event, refunds for event ticket purchases are available up to 7 business days prior to the event. Due to venue restrictions and requirements for final attendance numbers, refunds cannot be administered 7 business days or less prior to the event.
To request a refund, please contact our events team at email@example.com

Of course! When registering for an event, select the ‘Add Attendee’ button to include as many guests as you require. Enter the names and contact information (including a valid email address) for each of your attendees to ensure they receive their tickets, as well as any updates and confirmations.
It is important to provide the names and contact information of all attendees. When registering for an event, enter the names and contact information of all confirmed guests. As additional guest names are confirmed, you can go into your ticket purchase and update your registration information. Important to note, when updating information, please ensure you select "next" as the system will then prompt you to resend all tickets. (If you select the save and close option, unfortunately the tickets will not be sent).
Additional guest names can be added up to 24 hours prior to the event, after this time the event list is locked down. By adding the names and providing valid email addresses for all your guests, you will ensure they receive their tickets, as well as any email updates and confirmations.
We strongly recommend that you include the names of all attendees and their contact information when registering for an event. This way each attendee receives an individual ticket by email and can enter the event on their own, ensuring the best guest experience.
