UC19Ottawa Program

Inspiring speakers, timely topics and a well-planned agenda are the three cornerstones of successful conferences. Our Conference Team has pulled together a three-day roster of industry experts to provide all of our UC19Ottawa participants with: 

    • Informative keynote and plenary sessions, panels and workshops
    • USC-STC Working Group meetings to collaborate and move forward strategic initiatives
    • Networking evenings in the Exhibitor Hall

There’s more! 

We are launching our interactive, easy to navigate UC19Ottawa Event App over the next few days! Stay tuned for an email with all the details on how to get signed up. All registered participants (Speakers, Exhibitors, Sponsors, and Delegates) have access to the App, AttendeHub. 

The AttendeeHub App is the key source of information about all of our Speakers, Sponsors, and Exhibitor Booth locations on our trade show floor, and will allow you to setup your Networking and B2B session prior to the conference.

The App also has real-time updates about session times and topics and allows all Attendees to view and create their own custom UC19Ottawa agenda. 

Look for a personalized invite in your inbox to get the App and get signed in! 


Register now to be notified of the launch of our UC19Ottawa Event App. You’ll want the wealth of information and interactive features (agenda, B2B meeting capabilities, workshop polls, live Speaker Q&A sessions and more) at your fingertips. 

Breakfasts (7:00-8:00 AM), lunches (12:00-1:30 PM) & networking sessions (5:00-7:00PM) in the Exhibitor Hall are included. Watch for the #UC19Ottawa Event Website & App for full details about participants, workshops & activities.
