Project Description

CACE Capital Connections! 

October 22-25, 2016

Ottawa Marriott Hotel, 100 Kent Street, Ottawa, Ontario

“The real message of the media is now ubiquitous. Now it’s no longer something we do, but rather something to which we belong.”
Marshall McLuhan

Android, iPhone, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Google Hangout, Facetime, SurveyMonkey, LinkedIn … phew! This connectivity vocabulary in our world of immediacy and cyber-links. We are in an era of transformational change in our leisure experience, by our public status, and the general shift of the self-portrait to the “selfie.” More than ever we are connected to the web, to others, and to the world. We have moved from interdependence to connectivity.

When we look closer, connectivity provides connections to other entities in the environment. The entity is each of us. The connections are endless. We now exist through our capacity to bind us to each other in a borderless world, any time and without real limits except those we impose on ourselves.

The possibilities are multiplying at great speed to be everywhere at all times. Omnipresent you say? Absolutely. In our connectivity, we are not invited to observe mass movements, but to participate in all movements with energy and passion … at the same time.

Do you need to be part of the movement of Capital Connections at the 2016 Annual CACE conference in Ottawa? Oh yeah!


Planning for the 2016 CACE Conference is underway! We look forward to seeing you in Ottawa from October 22-25, 2016!

Hotel Information


To all CACE-ACACÉ Members

Only 6 weeks left before the 2016 CACE-ACACÉ Conference in Ottawa.  I hope you have registered or will do so in the next few days. Space is limited.

We would also like to advise you that there are no more rooms available at the Marriott Hotel. Our block of reserved rooms is full and so is the hotel.

We have negotiated  a block of rooms at the new ALT Hotel, Le Germain Group at 185 Slater Street, Ottawa.  The hotel is a 6-minute walk from the Marriott.  The preferred rate is $149.

You can reserve your room for the conference by calling  1 (844)-258-6882  or by sending an e-mail to [email protected] and  using the code CACE2016.  

The rooms will be available at that rate until  October 7, 2016.
