As Canada's version of Silicon Valley North—Ontario's Region of Waterloo is a hotbed of technological innovation in the province. The range of intellectual capital in the city is breathtaking—the University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University, the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (Stephen Hawking holds the title of Distin- guished Research Chair) and the Centre for International Governance and Innovation (CIGI)—an independent, non-partisan think tank—all call the area home. Google Cana- da has just opened a large office and Black- Berry and Opentext were founded here. The region is easily accessible from the 401, located just one hour west of Toronto. Home to the Region of Waterloo Interna- tional Airport, which offers daily flights to Chicago, Calgary, Ottawa and Montreal. Regular service on VIA Rail is also available from Union Station. TECH-SAVVY HOTELS AND VENUES The new DELTA WATERLOO is ideally located just blocks away from CIGI and the Perimeter Insti- tute. The contemporary feel is perfect for corpo- rate groups and business travellers. Sleek Smart- desk technology and smart TV's in all rooms make connectivity seamless. In Uptown Waterloo, close to the universities, cafés, restaurants and bars, the hotel is nestled in the architecturally historical Barrel Yards district of the city, home of a former Seagram's distillery. All meeting rooms have natural light and ceiling mounted projectors and screens—tech accessibil- ity with one flip of a switch. DELTA WATERLOO 2 D E S T I N AT I O N W AT E R L O O
