THE VENUE: Your boardroom for the day.

"When I started planning Gem Conference, I knew that finding the perfect venue was as important as any other detail. Ambiance + architecture can add so much inspiration to any event" - Gem Founder, Amanda Cockburn


Our venue is the Horticulture Building at Landsdowne park, an urban oasis in Ottawa's historic Glebe Neighbourhood. Although being downtown, Horticulture is surrounded by lush green space and mere steps away from the canal, a Unesco heritage site. Recently polished up during the recent Landsdowne redevelopment, this building has modernized its amenities while maintaining its historic charm.

Floor to ceiling panelled windows, exposed rafters, an industrial mix of reclaimed wood + concrete flooring- the Horticulture building is a dream. The venue boasts ample onsite underground parking and is on city transit lines. The Horticulture building is the perfect backdrop for our inaugural conference to inspire you, and your boardroom for the day.
