2021 Conference Rescheduled to September 2022 – ECA Ontario’s 2021 Annual Industry Conference in Prague, Czech Republic, has been rescheduled to September 18-24,2022. Prague, capital city of the Czech Republic, is nicknamed “the City of a Hundred Spires.” It’s known for its Old Town Square, the heart of its historic core, with colorful baroque buildings, Gothic churches and the medieval Astronomical Clock, which gives an animated hourly show.
Delegates will stay at the luxurious Mandarin Oriental Prague – itself a piece of history, dating back to the 14th century – you are set to explore this most unique of European cities. Minutes by foot to the Charles Bridge, built under the auspices of King Charles IV in the 14th century, venture through ancient cobblestone streets. While you might think Bohemian when you hear Prague, today it is a mixture of Old and New. World-class art galleries mix with modern luxury retailers, casual cafes are intermingled with Michelin star restaurants.
We are pleased to invite all ECA Ottawa Members to join us, virtually via Zoom, on Tuesday February 16, 2021 for our Annual General Meeting.
