ACCOMMODATIONS AND TRANSPORTATION

Accommodations

Per the Participant Agreement, all participants of the 2014 Canada Open are required to stay at the official host hotel of the 2014 Canada Open in order to register as a participant unless they are a local resident of the host city or if they have received an exemption from the Event Organizers.

Stay to Save Rationale

Building the taekwondo community under one roof

Staying at the Sheraton Center Montreal as a group facilitates the opportunity for participants to meet, interact and build relationships with Canadian and international taekwondo community members. Taekwondo Canada wants to create a memorable experience through building a sense of community under one roof.

Lowered costs

It is estimated that participants will pay $100 more if rooms are booked outside the group rate. Registration fees for this event were significantly lowered due to this negotiation with the Sheraton Center Montreal. Note the price for a triple and quad occupation is the same.

A bright future

The price-point negotiated with the Sheraton Center Montreal is intended to benefit participants of today and of the future. The price will remain in that range for the next quadrennial, despite inflation and inevitable rising costs. Furthermore, as a non-profit organization, profits generated at this event are guaranteed to be invested back into the taekwondo community through national programs, services and national team support. This event hosting model will benefit the Canadian taekwondo community as a whole.

Exemptions

Taekwondo Canada will accept applications for exemption. The exemption application form is available at the following link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1u5Vv9mWXh1vrhQoxV-nPiPfGPAR_Mo8oTA6k-TQCCaA/viewform
