ASTRO 2016 took place in Ottawa Ontario during the world-famous Canadian Tulip Festival. Ottawa is the Nation's Capital - modern, compact and safe. The conference was held at the newly-renovated Delta Ottawa City Centre. In the heart of the downtown core, the Delta is surrounded by excellent restaurants.

The event was a complete success and we could not have done it without the help of our Committee, our Volunteers, our Delegates, our Presenters, Sponsors and Exhibitors and especially our VIP's. Everyone had a great time and had nothing but nice things to say about our event.

If you enjoyed it or missed it, we invite you to ASTRO 2018 and of course, AERO 2017 in Toronto!!

Thanks everyone!!
