BEC Partner Spotlight: Ottawa
Ottawa: Engineered for Conferences
As Canada’s Capital, Ottawa is a city that tells the stories of Canada like no other. It’s the place where Canadians gather to celebrate their shared heritage. And it’s a region of natural beauty, crisscrossed by rivers, waterways, parks and parkways. Ottawa Tourism’s goal is to provide meeting planners and delegates a truly unique Canadian experience that fits the needs of each meeting held in Ottawa and sets each convention up for success. Ottawa is a unique, accessible and welcoming gathering destination that offers the complete capital experience, tells the story of Canada, and gets people talking.
But don’t be fooled by its good looks. Ottawa’s also got a ton of smarts.
With the second highest concentration of engineers and scientists in North America, Ottawa-based researchers, scientists and developers are building game-changing solutions in today’s disruptive technologies; from autonomous vehicles to artificial intelligence, robotics, blockchain, next-generation networks and cybersecurity. This R&D community is supported by 65 government research labs and fuelled by graduates from STEM programs at six local post-secondary institutions.
