Breaking Convention For a Change

In the ever-changing and shifting realities of today’s associations, “we’ve always done it that way” doesn’t cut it anymore. Our continuous attendance growth led us to embrace change and venture out to a location with unrestrained space to grow and do business. Tête-à-Tête 2018 is breaking convention for a change and heading to the EY Centre, a more spacious location just 15 minutes from downtown Ottawa. The EY Centre boasts 150,000 square feet of undisrupted exhibition space and ample $8 flat-fee parking.

Participants will discover a growing number of exhibitors showcasing new products and services that will contribute to their professional and personal growth, while exhibitors will take advantage of the prime networking environment that this larger space provides to grow their business.

Be Our Guest

All Association and Not-For-Profit Executive Directors and Employees, Meeting and Event Planners and Government Procurers attend at NO COST. Be our guest, take a seat at the table, and exchange and connect with your peers to grow professionally and personally. Closed to Non-Exhibiting Suppliers.

Head for change and make plans to grow in 2018!
