Conference and meeting venue delivers extraordinary value close to Ottawa

It’s event planning season in Eastern Ontario and the largest conference and meeting venue in the region is gearing up to make sure everyone leaves a winner — especially those who make events happen.

Situated on the scenic banks of the St. Lawrence River in Cornwall, the NAV CENTRE is a modern venue able to accommodate everything from large meetings to weekend getaways.

With a unique combination of 550 guest rooms, more than 70,000 square feet of meeting space, numerous dining options, health and fitness facilities and an unparalleled commitment to hospitality, there’s no doubt that the NAV CENTRE is built to deliver value.

“A venue that has versatile meeting spaces, excellent dining alternatives and recreational options ultimately gives planners choice and conven- ience,” says Kim Coe-Turner, General Manager of the NAV CENTRE. “Our no-nonsense packages include your stay, your meals and access to all our facilities for one price.”

The NAV CENTRE is a popular spot for organizations that want to have a get-away meeting or team-building exercise in a place close to home but where you still feel you are “outside the bubble”.

As with any first-rate venue, the NAV CENTRE boasts a group of experienced and dedicated staff, including award-winning executive chef Jean-Mathieu Leclerc and a hand-picked executive team with impeccable credentials.

The NAV CENTRE’s courtyards and amenities provide the perfect setting to unwind after a day of meetings.

“Add to that our willingness to take care of all the details, from organizing transportation and banquets to helping promote your event, and you have a value offering that is hard to beat – especially for price conscious businesses.”

That dedication to service has earned it a mark that puts it among only a handful of Canadian facilities; it’s certified by the International Association of Conference Centers for adhering to the most exacting standards.

The power to surprise

One key area where the NAV CENTRE consistently surprises is in leisure activities.

The NAV CENTRE boasts a new, full service spa opened in September to pamper guests with relaxation, massage therapy, esthetics and a variety of rejuvenation treatments.

“The NAV SPA will leave you rejuvenated and ready to rise to the challenges of your work week,” says Coe-Turner. “Our competitive weekend getaway packages make a spa visit a guilt-free indulgence.”

Despite its brand-newness, the NAV SPA’s service partnerships leave you in trusted hands. The spa is managed by Linda Graham-Arsenault, who is well-reputed in the region for spa management.

“Our partnership with Dr. James Lacey, a leading Ottawa-based plastic and cosmetic surgeon, allows you to seek more advanced treatments such as botox and surgical consultations with the enhanced privacy of our facility,” says Coe-Turner.

A trip to the NAV CENTRE can also be tied to regional attractions such as the Upper Canada Village, famous for transporting visitors back to the 1860s.

All-star value and service

The Jet Set Pub, known for its excellent selection of draught beer and pub fare.

The NAV CENTRE is currently offering a package that includes an evening at the village’s Alight at Night festival, when more than 500,000 lights adorn the heritage buildings to warm visitors during the winter months.

“We bring you unbeatable leisure value with a package that also includes a junior suite, breakfast, dinner and a $70 spa voucher for only $221,” says Coe-Turner. “We’re offering an exceptional package at a truly exceptional price.

“No matter what the package, one thing that never changes is our commitment to customer service excellence, and seeing you leave happy.”

Versatility, competitive pricing, and excellent customer service make the NAV CENTRE an ideal choice — guaranteed to make the meeting or event planner the MVP.
