Oprah In Calgary: Twitter Reacts

"It's a huge coup for Calgary. It's just a great thing for the city of Calgary. I think it's very rare that she does stuff like this so we're just excited for the city that we're able to get her here," event organizer, Andy McCreath, told the Calgary Herald.

"She's one of those larger-than-life figures. It was just a natural place to have her. It's the biggest venue to host her just because of her popularity," McCreath, who works for tinePublic Inc., said.

According to the Sacramento Bee, tinePublic Inc. produces many high-profile events and conferences across North America and have worked with President George W. Bush, His Holiness The Dalai Lama, Elton John and Diana Ross, to name a few.
