Message from the Co-Chairs

I am enthusiastic and honored to be one of your two Co-Chairs for the Canadian Public Procurement Council Forum 2017. The decision to take on the role was something that took very little time to make and it is with great pride and passion that I look forward to working through the development and delivery of a program that will peak interest and inspire us all to look to the future of public procurement. “Innovating in Public Procurement” is the theme for the Forum in 2017, a theme that was conceived with the acknowledgement of the need to always be leaning forward and thinking of the challenges that the future will bring due to our ever-changing environment. My home town of Ottawa is our venue in 2017, and with all the celebrations that will be taking place here for our country’s 150th birthday, as Co-Chair, I look forward to welcoming you to our Nation’s Capital and more specifically the Forum in November. Ottawa is the place to be in 2017!

John Blasko Co-Chair, CPPC Forum 2017

C’est avec une grande fierté et un enthousiasme renouvelé que j’ai accepté d’assumer la co-présidence du Forum 2017 du Conseil canadien des marchés publics à Ottawa en novembre prochain. Nous souhaitons relever le défi de vous proposer un programme riche et inspirant à la hauteur des éditions précédentes. Sous le thème « Innovation dans les marchés publics », c’est dans un esprit de constante amélioration des pratiques d’affaires et de la gestion contractuelle face à un environnement en perpétuels changements, que nous vous ferons vivre cette prochaine rencontre annuelle, laquelle se tiendra en plus dans le cadre des festivités du 150e anniversaire du Canada. Nous vous attendons donc en grand nombre à Ottawa, là où il faut être en 2017 !

Hotel Registration Policy

Staying at the host hotel helps the CCPC meet its contractual obligations, therefore keep registration fees down. Take advantage of the convenience, camaraderie and savings by staying at the Ottawa Marriott. Attendees choosing alternate accommodations will be assessed a $150 surcharge on their registration fee. In your registration process you will be asked to provide your hotel reservation confirmation number so please make sure you complete your hotel reservation first. To book you room, please click here to access our hotel registration page with special rates for the event.

*Please note that for those who require a guestroom on Wednesday, November 8 you will need to select an upgraded room either for your full stay or make two reservations, one to depart on November 8 in the traditional room and a separate reservation for the night of November 8.

Local attendees: If you plan to commute daily and live within a 100 kilometer radius of the Ottawa Marriott, we will waive the $150 surcharge fee assessed to attendees making alternative hotel accommodations. To avoid the surcharge fee, you must include as part of your registration the commute mileage (one way) when registering.

Room Sharing: Attendees sharing a room at the Ottawa Marriott are exempt from the surcharge fee, however must provide a confirmation number and list all names on reservation for verification.

Marketing Opportunities

The CPPC encourages companies who do business with governments at all levels to take this opportunity to meet public procurement officials outside of the confines of a contract negotiation.

Marketing opportunities in the form of exhibit booth space and sponsorships are available for the three-day conference. For more information, click here to download our sponsorship package.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Ottawa this Fall !
