Canada’s meeting Place Your meeting Place
First Nations people made Ottawa a gathering place thousands of years before the city was founded and became Canada’s capital. Today, Ottawa is a leading meeting and convention destination and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. It’s little wonder. We offer a state-of-the-art convention centre, an award-winning airport, impressive hotels and public spaces. Events held here have ready access to policy makers, media, experts, and innovators across a wide range of fields and sectors. And, most important of all, Ottawa is a dynamic visitor destination offering convention delegates unique urban, cultural and recreational experiences. Meetings and conventions are big business, bringing tens of millions of dollars in economic impact to our community every year. Ottawa’s business, academic and community leaders can play a direct role in bringing events to our city. National and international organizations rely on the influence and connections of local host organizing committees to leverage sponsorships, speakers, programming content and social events. While the local host isn’t responsible for actually hosting the event, they are keys to bidding for national and international events
