Compass Group portfolio. Levy will support ICE District Hospitality through its experience as the

on elevated hospitality embracing the very best ingredients from local farmers and purveyors,
fused with the dynamic and diverse Edmonton culinary landscape. The company is also

in fulfilling the vision of the District. From delivering the experiences that Oilers fans enjoy most
to creating new, signature hospitality experiences throughout the district. Through it all, we’ll
continue to work with the community and Edmonton’s incredible hospitality talent.”
