The Shaw Centre is reopening for small meetings and continue to update their standards to ensure health and safety of staff, clients and attendees.
Ottawa’s meeting planners, venues and accommodations have all re-imagined their approaches and operations to meet the new realities of hosting guests and business events.
And our mid-sized, walkable city, with its an abundance of wide-open spaces and outdoor activities, is the perfect setting to set delegate minds at ease.
Meeting venues: safety first
Ottawa’s meeting venues have all implemented protocols and procedures that meet or exceed public health guidelines for keeping delegates safe. From limiting meeting sizes to offering technical support for hybrid events, to completely rethinking food service and investing in advanced sanitizing technology, our venues are ready to make meetings happen safely.
Ottawa hotels: stay safe
Ottawa’s hotel community is part of North America’s Safe Stay initiative developed by the Hotel Association of Canada and the American Hotel & Lodging Association. The Safe Stay health and safety guidelines were developed in accordance with direction from the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Centres for Disease Control. These include enhanced hotel cleaning practices, social interactions and workplace protocols.
