The meeting will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ottawa, a popular venue for conferences in the nation’s capital. The hotel is located downtown in the heart of city’s business and entertainment districts, and close to the Parliament buildings, museums and the Rideau Canal. It offers a spectacular view of the city from its penthouse where some conference events will be held.

Hotel Reservations

We encourage you to stay at the Hotel to be close to the meeting location and to help keep our meeting costs down. The local organizing committee has negotiated an excellent guestroom rate: $120 per night plus taxes. This conference rate is for one or two adults with one or two beds requested. Each additional adult in the room (to a maximum of four adults per room) is an additional $15.00 per adult.

To reserve a room, simply contact the hotel directly.

For the special conference rate, please identify yourself with the following:
  Corporate, Group & IATA Identification:
    Group Booking Code: "ESC"

As of June 20, 2008, our "ESC" rooms are the only rooms available - all other rooms are booked - so you have to ask for this special booking code.
