The MPI Ottawa Prix Prestige Awards are designed to recognize excellence in active chapter members for their commitment, service and involvement in the chapter or industry and community at large.

MPI Ottawa’s Prix Prestige Awards reflect the best of the best in the meetings industry and are awarded each year under the following categories: Planner of the Year, Supplier of the Year, Mentor of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Student of the Year, and Rising Star. There are also two special categories bestowed at the discretion of the President: Honourary Member, and the President’s Award.

For a number of years, the MPI Ottawa Chapter has recognized longstanding retired members of the chapter and community leaders who have made significant contributions to the MPI Ottawa Chapter or to the meetings, tourism or hospitality industry by awarding them Honourary Memberships in the Chapter.

Nomination Process

Nominations are received from the MPI Ottawa membership for all Award categories with the exception of the President’s Award. MPI Ottawa members are asked to complete a 3 question nomination form and include detailed information on their contributions to the meetings industry and the Ottawa Chapter. Upon return of completed forms to the Secretariat, all nominations are reviewed by the Chair of the Awards and Recognition Committee to ensure that they meet the Selection Criteria as outlined in the Awards application. Each nominee is then contacted and must accept the nomination. Once the nomination slate is finalized, the completed forms are passed on to the Executive members of the Chapter’s Board of Directors, who are tasked with selecting the award recipient for each category.

A more complete list of Awards Categories are available here.
