Lowertown Brewery

Closing Social Event

We have a major social gathering schedule for Saturday night after the talks. You should pay for this event during your registration. Cost $30.

If you forget to register, email us ASAP so we can get the numbers right. Also, email us if you want to bring someone. You'll be able to pay when you pick up your registration pack.

Lowertown Brewery is in the Market area of Ottawa, about a 15 minute walk from the conference venue. We will have exclusive use of the venue.

There will be a cash bar. Local beer brewed by the venue is available.

Everything starts at 6:30pm with the main meal at 7:45pm. There will be lots of food available before the meal. You won't go hungry.
