The Ottawa Congress Centre is 84,000+ square feet of modern meeting space surrounded by the sites, attractions, excitement, and amenities of downtown Ottawa, Canada's Capital... The only dedicated meeting facility in the city, the Centre offers convention and event plannersflexible and varied spaces: the Executive Boardroom for regional or executive meetings of 10 to 20 people; the 66,000 square foot Congress Hall level for large-scale conventions, trade and consumer shows including dinners of 2,000 and 5,000-delegate plenary sessions; the 12,524 square foot Capital Hall level with up to nine different rooms for smaller workshops and break-out sessions.
