We are excited to announce the upcoming Whisky Ottawa Event on September 29th & 30th, 2023 and as volunteers are the backbone of any festival or event, we are looking for your interest to join us!

Whisky Ottawa, scheduled to take place at the Shaw Center, downtown Ottawa, is a celebration of whisky that brings together enthusiasts, professionals and newcomers alike. With a focus on promoting whisky education and appreciation, we are eager to engage dedicated individuals like you, who aspire to broaden their knowledge and skills as sommelier and hospitality students.

Knowledgeable Consumption, the corporate, not-for-profit organization behind the annual Whisky Ottawa (WO) event, is bringing this popular educational opportunity.

As a volunteer, you will be asked to contribute to various event tasks, such as;

  • Connect with our Whisky Ottawa Marketing team and share your strategies and ideas to promote the event
  • Assisting with pouring and attend whisky tasting sessions
  • Assist in guiding participants through different whisky profiles
  • Support event set up and organization, including exhibitor assistance and logistics coordination
  • Assist with admission and attendee management
  • Provide general support, such as answering inquiries, distributing event materials, and ensuring a seamless experience for all attendees

Not only will you gain practical experience in the whisky field, but you will have the chance to develop new connections and learn from industry experts. 

If you are interested in joining us as a volunteer for Whisky Ottawa, please reach out to us.

We will provide you with further details regarding orientation, volunteer shifts and any additional information necessary for your participation.

Thank you for considering this volunteering opportunity. Your support will contribute to the success of the event while helping you further your journey as a sommelier and hospitality student. We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you to our team!
