Partner update
Published on 23 May 2023

Ottawa, Canada’s capital, continues to win significant technology conferences, including three IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) events between now and summer 2025.

Ottawa has secured the IEEE Sections Congress in 2023, the 2024 IEEE NSREC, and the 2025 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and CNC/URSI Radio Science Meeting.

In addition to these IEEE conferences, in 2023 Ottawa is also due to host the International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers and the 28th IAVSD Symposium on Dynamics of Vehicles on Roads and on Tracks.

These events are set to bring together a total of 5,000 experts from around the world to discuss the latest developments in technology, share knowledge and explore new ideas.

“Winning bids to host these top technology events is a testament to Ottawa’s reputation as a hub for technology and innovation,” says Lesley Mackay, Ottawa Tourism’s vice-president, Meetings and Major Events. “These wins perfectly reflect our ongoing focus on key industry sectors where Ottawa is a world leader, providing the organisers with the knowledge we will not only deliver the necessary conference infrastructure, but they will also be hosted by a city that truly understands their industry.”

In addition to the main events, Ottawa will host many related conferences, side-events and workshops in conjunction with the upcoming conferences.

With its state-of-the-art conference facilities and vibrant technology ecosystem, Ottawa is well positioned to continue its success in attracting top technology events.

In recent years Ottawa has been chosen to host numerous prestigious IEEE events, including the International Flexible Electronics Technology Conference (IFETC) in 2018, the IEEE International Conference on Wireless for Space and Extreme Environments in 2019, and the 2022 IEEE Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
