Shaw Centre

Local Ambassador Program

Three of Ottawa’s pillar economic development organizations – Ottawa Tourism, Shaw Centre, and Invest Ottawa – are working together to bring more conferences and events to Canada’s capital by supporting local industry leaders in their international conference bids.

Are you a trailblazer in your industry? Be a leader. Leave a legacy.

Hosting a national or international conference in your hometown is a powerful opportunity to showcase the pride you have for your city on a global stage. Regional, national and international organizations rely on the influence and connections of local “host city” leaders and organizing committees to leverage sponsorships, speakers, programming content and social events.

As a business, academic, or community leader, you can play a direct role in bringing industry events to your home, Canada’s capital city.
