Ottawa is Canada’s capital, a dynamic, accessible, and cosmopolitan city of one million people where you will experience Canada’s proud heritage, culture, and history on every corner. Ottawa also has a great reputation as a tech city and will give you easy access to talented expert speakers and resources.

As a co-founding member of the Hybrid City Alliance, Ottawa Tourism can offer you easy access to our network of partners, who are used to working together. Our team will connect you with service providers that have virtual and hybrid events design expertise, and venues that can offer unique hybrid meeting spaces. 

Ottawa is home to Shaw Centre, the city’s premier, state-of-the-art convention venue located in the heart of downtown next to the Rideau Canal and within easy walking distance of over 6000 hotel rooms. From limiting meeting sizes to offering technical support for hybrid events, to completely rethinking food service and investing in advanced sanitizing technology, our venues are ready to make meetings happen safely.

Our mid-sized, walkable city, with its an abundance of wide-open spaces and outdoor activities, is the perfect setting to set delegate minds at ease. Ottawa is home to many award-winning cultural attractions and beautiful natural sites such as the Rideau Canal, which is Ontario’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site. From museums, to galleries, to outdoor adventure in any season as well as fine dining and shopping, you can be sure your delegates will have something to remember!
