Centrally located with excellent air and transportation links, Ottawa is a premier Canadian meeting and convention destination any time of the year. It is an impressive yet intimate G8 capital, home to famous landmarks, cultural attractions and celebrations, rich in natural beauty and blessed with a relaxed urban rhythm. Adding unique Ottawa activities for delegates to your agenda is easy and very flexible based on the season. Delegates themselves tend to arrive here early, stay after their event, and bring along their spouses to enjoy everything Canada’s Capital has to offer – helping your event attract more delegates in the process. And the new Shaw Centre will be at the heart of it all – within easy walking distance of major downtown attractions, restaurants, and shopping, yet just a 20-minute shuttle ride from the Ottawa International Airport.
The Shaw Centre is very centrally located in downtown Ottawa, Ontario, Canada’s Capital. It is within walking distance of over 6,000 downtown Ottawa hotel rooms, numerous attractions and landmarks, and the ByWard Market. A 20-minute shuttle ride from the Ottawa International Airport, the Centre is directly linked to the Westin Ottawa Hotel and the 180-store Rideau Centre shopping complex.
The modern Ottawa International Airport serves Canada’s Capital with direct daily flights to over 30 North American and international destinations – and is just a 20-minute drive from Shaw Centre.
