General Information about Ottawa Meeting in Ottawa - Come early, stay late!

Centrally located with excellent air and transportation links, Ottawa is a premier Canadian meeting and convention destination. It is an impressive yet intimate G8 capital, home to famous landmarks, cultural attractions and celebrations, rich in natural beauty and blessed with a relaxed urban rhythm.

Adding unique Ottawa activities for delegates to your agenda is easy. And delegates themselves tend to arrive here early, stay after their event, and bring along their spouses to enjoy everything Canada’s Capital has to offer – helping your event attract more delegates in the process. And the new Ottawa Convention Centre is located at the heart of it all – within easy walking distance of major downtown attractions, restaurants, and shopping, yet just a 20-minute shuttle ride from the Ottawa International Airport.

If you’re looking for Ottawa Attractions and things to do, you’ve come to the right place. Some of Ottawa’s best known highlights include:

  • The Rideau Canal, Ontario’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, winds its way through the city. In winter it becomes the world’s largest naturally frozen skating rink.
  • Historic Parliament Hill is the seat of Canada’s national government and the setting for pomp, ceremony and celebration.
  • Ottawa’s ByWard Market offers one-of-a-kind shops and boutiques, over 80 restaurants and cafés, a thriving nightlife, and Canada’s oldest continuously operating farmers’ market.
