GlobalSIP 2019 will be held at the Shaw Centre, centrally located in downtown Ottawa, Ontario, Canada’s Capital, and directly linked to the Westin Ottawa Hotel by a covered walkway.
Welcome to Canada's Meeting Place
Formerly the Ottawa Convention Centre, the Shaw Centre opened in April 2011 and is owned by the Ontario provincial government. The Shaw Centre has four levels of meeting spaces, each with a view of the Rideau Canal and downtown area. The facility was built to be as environmentally friendly as possible, and in January 2013, was awarded LEED Gold certification. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a green building rating system developed by the U.S Green Building Council in 1998. The Shaw Centre used recycled steel to build the roof trusses, and logs from the bottom of the Ottawa River to make the Wall of Three Rivers. Because of its panoramic glass design, it saves energy by letting in natural daylight. It is within walking distance of numerous attractions and landmarks, including the ByWard Market. Twenty minutes away from the Ottawa International Airport, the Centre is directly linked to the 180-store Rideau Centre shopping complex and to the conference hotel, the Westin Ottawa Hotel.
