"Working with DMC Ottawa was a complete success. They are an extremely professional organization with attention to detail and excellent communications strategies...the evening was a wild success...I highly recommend DMC Ottawa and look forward to working with them again."
(Dr. Milan Gupta, Chair, Local Arrangements, 2003 Canadian Cardiovascular Congress)
DMC Ottawa produced 'An Evening at Le Cirque' for approximately 1,200 of Canada's senior cardiologists, physicians and specialists at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
A large, barren ballroom was transformed into a spectacular circus tent using imagination, décor and entertainment. The walls were lined with tall spandex "columns" topped with large gold balls adorned with one-of-a-kind silk-screened circus characters. Tables were dressed with multi-coloured linens and vibrant music-box centrepieces.
"Walking table" hostesses provided guests with brightly coloured mariboo "slap bracelets" on arrival to augment applause.
Magicians at tables entertained throughout a 7-course, gourmet dinner. Then there was a spellbinding performance by our aerial acrobatic team on a trapeze suspended from the ceiling. After dessert, a duo of clowns performed a balancing act that defied gravity and displayed phenomenal strength. The finalé was an outstanding performance by impressionist Martin Dubé.
The guests gave their verdict by spontaneously rising to their feet with standing ovations at several points throughout the evening.
