Come for the Conference, Stay for the Celebration
When Canada turns 150 on July 1 2017, participants at CAPA’s Canadian Camera Conference 2017 will be poised to take part in the festivities in Ottawa. The conference will be held on June 28th to 30th, with workshops and field trips before and after. But Canada Day will be kept free so everyone can don their red and white togs and head to Parliament Hill for what’s sure to be an over-the-top celebration.
The host organization is Ottawa’s RA Photo Club, which hosted very successful and popular conferences in 1998 and again in 2003. Organizers stress that, with all that is planned for Ottawa next year, it is best to move fast with travel, registration and accommodation.
Algonquin College, featuring comfortable and well-equipped lecture theatres, indoor commons areas and outdoor greens to invite mingling, is just a 20-minute express bus ride to Parliament Hill. Hotel rooms in Ottawa are already a scarce commodity for 2017, so Algonquin College is shaping up to be the best hotel deal in town. A large block of suites in the college residence is being held for the conference. Two-room suites sharing a bathroom and kitchenette are $120 per night – just $60 each for individuals or couples willing to share. The campus offers everything you may need, including an on-site coffee shop, cafeterias and shops for groceries and supplies, plus a brief walk to off-campus restaurants, liquor stores and pharmacies.
$360 CAPA Members – $395 Non CAPA Members
