Meeting planning assistance

Ottawa Tourism represents 450 member businesses in the hospitality community. This puts you in touch with all of them through one source thus giving you more time to do other things!

Services we can provide prior to selecting Ottawa as your convention site:

  • Lead Generation – Ottawa Tourism will be happy to act on your behalf to request proposals addressing your convention needs from our members.
  • Bid Proposals – We will prepare a customized bid that will include general information on the city and Canada, hotel and meeting facility proposals, and information from other suppliers in the local community.
  • Site Inspections – If Ottawa is seriously being considered as a potential convention site, it will be our pleasure to arrange a site inspection of our accommodations, meeting facilities and attractions in order to familiarize you with this beautiful city.
  • Bid Presentations – Ottawa Tourism Sales Managers can make a presentation of our bid to your selection committee or delegates, based on the economic impact of your meeting.
