OVOC Hospitality Suite – Open Thursday and Friday from 8 PM to 10 PM!

Please drop by the OVOC Hospitality Suite on Thursday and Friday night! It will be in one of the guest suites (room number to be provided by the Hilton closer to the LIR3M) at the conference hotel – the Hilton Garden Inn. You will find free beer, wine or soft drinks and some light snacks to keep you going after all the formal events of the day. The Hospitality Suite will provide you a great opportunity to continue your conversation with fellow chapter leaders from across the Region and to meet new friends. OVOC will have volunteers hosting the event who can help you plan your Ottawa sightseeing or get additional information about the local area.


The return of the PMI OVOC Scavenger hunt will start 45 minutes after activities are completed on Friday afternoon.  

Make up teams and search around downtown Ottawa for pre-selected ‘treasures’ and ‘landmarks’. The hunt will take no longer than 2 hours to complete, and your team will have until 10 PM on Friday night to complete it. In order to complete the scavenger hunt, your team will need to provide proof of your found treasurers (photos) back to the Hospitality Suite. Winners of the scavenger hunt will be announced on Saturday monrning will not be a race.  Teams will have a fixed time to provide proof of found treasures (pictures) back to the Hospitality Suite.
