Tête-à-Tête Trade Show Shifts Gears After More than 30 Years

CSAE Ottawa-Gatineau is rolling out its most popular event, Tête-à-Tête, in a new format this year.

The day of learning and connecting for event planners and association professionals will be held virtually.

“The program has been carefully created to provide attendees with many unique opportunities to explore best practices and learn about products and services that will help them succeed in the year ahead, despite some unique challenges they’re facing,” says Christine James, chair of the Canadian Society of Association Executives (CSAE), Ottawa-Gatineau network. “With a virtual format, the event will be easily attended by professionals from across Canada.”

To take place Feb. 10, the free event will include informative roundtable discussions, expert panel presentations, speakers and more than 75 exhibitors with products and services to assist attendees with meeting their goals.

Toronto epidemiologist Dr. David Fisman will wrap up the day as the closing keynote speaker. He will discuss the impact upcoming vaccinations will have on the path of COVID-19 through 2021, and how to prepare for an uncertain future.

Tête-à-Tête is now in its thirty-first year. It is open to meeting and event planners, association and not-for-profit leaders, and government procurers from across the country.
