OTTAWA MEET WEEK - SCHEDULEThis is a story... all about how... these groups got together... to make Ottawa WOW!
STAY TUNED…WE’RE WORKING BEHIND THE SCENES TO BRING YOU A FULL WEEK OF MEANINGFUL, AUTHENTIC AND FUN EVENTS DURING OTTAWA MEET WEEK!
SIX LIVE, IN-PERSON EVENTS, ALL IN THE SAME CITY, DURING THE SAME WEEK!
There has never been a better time to collaborate. In the aftermath of what has been two devastating years to our industry, a group of associations got together and said: “We’re going to do everything we can to make sure our community, friends and industry get the most they possibly can out of this one week of events in Ottawa.”
Please support these events as much as you can, you can register for each of them by clicking the Register button beneath each event. Please note – you must register to each event separately (with the exception of the MPI Ottawa events, you can register to their two events at the same time).
