ONTARIO CONTACT 2012 Registration is Now Open!

We are very excited about the upcoming Ontario Contact 2012!

This year, Ontario Contact will take place in Kitchener, Ontario. Kitchener is a very interesting community at this moment as it commits to changing the profile of culture as a way to attract business and employees. This means that it is the place to be if you are interested in how a community can come together. So, you don’t want to miss Ontario Contact 2012!


Changes to the registration process – Ticketpro is running registration for us. You can still register through our Ontario Contact site or go directly to the Ticketpro site to register.

Information about the passes appear on both sites. Pass C is the basic registration which includes your two networking lunches. Pass B adds the Awards Dinner and Pass A has all of the above plus the Closing Celebration.

Is Ontario Contact New to You? You can access the First Timers’ rate. If you know of a festival or series that doesn’t come to Ontario Contact, encourage them, let us know and you can qualify for a draw for a free registration!

Professional Development

As in the past, many of our more formal professional development activities will take place on Wednesday, October 24th. Plans are still underway so watch for details. Just a hint, the Facility Manager’s meeting will take place along with other industry specific opportunities to share with your peers.

Things you don’t want to miss!  

Extraordinary Projects in Theatre, Dance & Multi-media Works – artists, agents and managers look for a Request for Proposal for Extraordinary Projects in Theatre, Dance & Multi-media Works giving the successful applicants an opportunity to meet with presenters and talk about a project you would like to get underway but want to ‘test’ the waters first to see if there might be interest.

Indie Showcases – in the works with City of Kitchener and Downtown Kitchener, opportunities for non-showcasing artists to be featured in local restaurants while delegates have their meals. More information coming soon!

Hot Topics - those quick and effective discussions for sharing new ideas, opportunities and knowledge.
Pitch Sessions - highly successful and always standing room only, we are offering these at The Registry Theatre with a little more tech support than we have given in the past. 

Getting to Kitchener

Airways Transit is offering a special conference rate for delegates. See the Ontario Contact website for details.
