Delegate Journey roadmap

Virtually Ottawa interactive site visit

Welcome to Virtually Ottawa!

As the meetings and conventions industry begins to rebuild itself, it is now more important than ever to understand the delegate journey when selecting the convention or meeting host destination. This is why Ottawa Tourism has developed the delegate journey roadmap for meeting planners and event producers to not only virtually experience the delegate journey but to also obtain information about some key Ottawa venues for hosting events and meetings going forward.

Embark on a journey with us as we introduce you to the various steps your delegates will encounter when meeting in Ottawa. From your delegates arrival at the airport to their check-in at the hotel, or their venue attendance to their after-meeting activities, dining and shopping, we’ve got each step of their experience covered for you in our virtual delegate journey roadmap.

Put yourself virtually in your delegates shoes and explore Ottawa by navigating around the sites, as if you were walking in our compact and accessible downtown core, thanks to a full 360˚ interactive environment. Enter venues through the flashing doors and click on the flashing icons for information on safety measures and protocols that our city and partners have set up to safely welcome you back in Ottawa.

Enter the Shaw Centre, Ottawa’s award-winning convention centre, for a virtual site visit. Explore Ottawa’s landscape through the panoramic city tour from the Trillium Ballroom and tour the centre to discover the locally inspired experiences that await you! Immerse yourself in a mixology demonstration with Greg O'Brien from Bar From Afar and learn how to create craft cocktails at home, take a 15-minute break from your desk and recharge with Brittany Bryden, a yoga & movement teacher, and hop in the kitchen with Shaw Centre’s Chef Turcot as he shares his inspiration for a decadent treat for the whole family.

This is a full 360˚ interactive environment. Simply use your mouse to navigate around the sites and explore! Click on the flashing icons for information and activities. Enter the rooms through the flashing doors or use the legend to transport yourself to a specific space. Use the arrows on the floor to navigate around the room.
