    As the world reopens and we step back onto our stage, the events industry, we have the greatest opportunity of our lifetime.

    We can remake the events world in a way that is fair healthy and sustainable.

    You should attend the sustainable events forum if you want to make your mark on the world through the events you touch. This is the place for you if you believe events can create a more sustainable future for the planet.

    Through education and connection we will strive to inspire each other and collaborate to act to create positive change in the event industry and the world.

    Attend this event if you are: 

    •  A professional and a leader in the event industry (hint: you are!)
    • Serious about being a force for positive climate action
    • Ready to connect with your peers and create climate action momentum in the events industry
    • Able to create opportunities out of problems, see the silver lining around the cloud and can leap tall buildings in a single bound (in other words…you are an event professional!)

    We hope you can join us and together we can build our new world of events.

    INFODEMIC! IS MISINFORMATION KILLING US? With TIMOTHY CAULFIELD

    Cow urine, bleach, and cocaine have all been recommended as COVID-19 cures — all nonsense. The pandemic has been cast as a leaked bioweapon, a byproduct of 5G wireless technology, and a political hoax — all poppycock. And countless wellness gurus and alternative-medicine practitioners have pushed unproven potions, pills, and practices as ways to “boost” the immune system. Misinformation is absolutely everywhere. The coronavirus isn’t just a pandemic, it is an infodemic. It’s caused physical harm and financial loss; added confusion and distraction to an already chaotic environment; and made it even more difficult to implement the needed health policy initiatives.
    How does this misinformation spread? Why do people believe it? What can we do as individuals and a community to fight back? Who can we trust? In this provocative presentation, Professor Timothy Caulfield will explore these questions and more.

    Speaker:  Timothy Caulfield, Professor of Health Law and Science Policy, Author of Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything?

    Professor Timothy Caulfield is an unrivalled communicator who debunks myths and assumptions about innovation in the health sector — from research on stem cells to diets to alternative medicine — for the benefit of the public and decision-makers. He is a Canada Research Chair in health law and policy, a professor in the Faculty of Law and the School of Public Health, and a research director of the Health Law Institute at the University of Alberta.

    Ongoing tumultuous upheaval has swept through our industry and thrown us into uncharted waters. You may feel quite untethered, and rightly so. Please look to us and consider SITE Canada your life preserver in these choppy seas of change. Let’s anchor ourselves together as we initiate a reset and move forward with renewed purpose.

    We hope you have marked October 28th on your calendar. Although the channel has changed from “live” to “virtual,” our Education Day: The Comeback Journey, promises to be an engaging and instructive gathering of your peers.
     
    Education Day will expand our thinking, prowess, and ingenuity with an agenda chock full of ace keynote speakers serving up fresh takes on relevant topics; Dialogue Dens offering small group connections; guided wellness activity,‘snackable’ insights to ponder; and inspiring stories from those out there bringing the moxie in a time where fearlessness wins the day.
     
    We all need a boost in morale, compass direction, and renewed purpose. On October 28th, we will strive to provide a bounty of uplifting content and camaraderie.
     
    What you can look forward to:
     
    REUNITE. Ample interaction with your fellow SITE members plus friends of SITE
    REFOCUS. Support & personal reflection for a lift in confidence & optimism
    REIMAGINE. Hard skills and practices to enhance your toolkit & client offerings
     
    SITE’s Vancouver Manifesto committed to social responsibility and sustainability. With that in mind, The Comeback Journey is proud to include a special presentation by a young Canadian company that has developed novel eco-friendly product for the hotel industry. On the vanguard of the environmental movement (and featured in National Geographic!), these bright minds are sure to fill your hearts and minds with “Yes, we can!” spirit and propel us all forward with renewed hope and vigour.
     
    We want you to know that you’re not alone. We’re sending high fives and much needed virtual hugs in salute to your boundless capacity to revive, refocus, and face a new day. We’re in this together!
     
    Let’s applaud our resilience as we navigate this crisis and realize our power to meet formidable challenges. The Comeback Journey will take us to the other side to forge a new and vital path.

    Join us in #CelebratingExcellence in our chapter!

    The MPI Ottawa Prix Prestige Awards are designed to recognize excellence in active chapter members for their commitment, service and involvement in the chapter or industry and community at large. The annual awards gala will take place on virtually October 29th.

    MPI Ottawa’s Prix Prestige Awards reflect the best of the best in the meetings industry and are awarded each year under the following categories: Planner of the Year, Supplier of the Year, Mentor of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Student of the Year, and Rising Star. There are also two special categories bestowed at the discretion of the President: Honourary Member, and the President’s Award.

    For a number of years, the MPI Ottawa Chapter has recognized longstanding retired members of the chapter and community leaders who have made significant contributions to the MPI Ottawa Chapter or to the meetings, tourism or hospitality industry by awarding them Honourary Memberships in the Chapter. Although nominations are welcomed from the membership, the final decision resides with the President.

    The President’s Award is bestowed to an individual who has made a unique and outstanding contribution to our Chapter. This award is not necessarily given out annually, but rather as a deserving individual is deemed worthy by the President.

    CONNECTION. EXPERIMENTATION. COLLABORATION. INNOVATION.

    Recovery is coming. We all want to get back to the business of connecting people, ideas and opportunities. We also know that you want answers and insights on what the future holds for your careers and businesses.

    Convening Leaders 2021 will be your community design lab for what business events will look like in a post-pandemic world.

    We get it… money is tight. We are committed to making Convening Leaders 2021 affordable for anyone who wants to participate with a lead price of $295 USD. Because this is your future and the future of an industry that you built from invisible to invincible.

    Making connections is a cornerstone of Convening Leaders. By offering a combination of streaming broadcast TV (with a live studio audience in some locations) and face-to-face experiences through our official network partners, Convening Leaders 2021 will connect with you where, how and when you want to participate.

    We know the industry has been disrupted and has accelerated trends in ways we didn’t see coming. It’s time to embrace the change in order to thrive in the future.

    We are here to explore a way forward and collaborate to build solutions.
