BEHIND THE PR SCENES

Join us November 28, 2017, as we go behind the scenes with Guy Laflamme, Executive Director of Ottawa 2017.Hear about what it took to organize 12 months of celebratory events and experiences. Leading a multidisciplinary team, Guy is the executive producer of a 40 million dollars year-long celebration. Programming included a variety of performing arts, sporting, social and large-scale events as well as legacy projects generating a lasting impact on the Ottawa region. Guy is known for his vision and management of large-scale events and festivals. It’s fair to say if you can think of a major event in Ottawa in the past 15 years, Guy was involved and behind the scenes.

In addition, we are delighted to have mayor Jim Watson join us to give opening remarks on the overall Ottawa 2017 campaign.
