Many events are catered at the Congress, it's huge and downtown which is fun. Leave your car, hop on a bus and find yourself at the congress centre. Go for automobiles or go for a speciality show this is where it's more likely to happen.

This is an amazing facility. The acoustics and AV are great and the whole salon was something to be savored and enjoyed

A tremedous improvement over the old building! The architecture, especially the huge glass curtain wall, is marvelous. The views of downtown Ottawa and Parliament Hill are spectacular.

My son and I attended the 2012 Ottawa Auto Show in this building, and thoroughly enjoyed the show, and the venue.

What a terrible thing not to provide internet service in such a great potential venue. There are STREAMS OF PEOPLE walking over to the Apple store during breaks just to get their email. If you have an event planned go anywhere else as your visitors will be frustrated. The city just has no clue about how important network access everywhere is for innovation. Suggest not using this beautiful but boring facility that has no internet for conferences.

Attnede 3 conference here in last year. The newly rebuilt congress centre is open and airy, bright and well labelled. It is a comfortable, easy to get around venue with lots of space, even when crowded.
