As event professionals, we strive to create memorable events that stand out and engage our attendees. Many details should be considered when planning an event, but any good planner knows an important element of any event is the décor. Decor sets the mood for the rest of the event. The colours, shapes, and textures will impact the overall décor objective.
When it comes to décor, we rely on our trusted preferred supplier, Groupe ABP, at the Shaw Center. We have worked with Groupe ABP since 2019 and have fostered our relationship, to grow into a successful partnership to date. With a head office in Montreal and a satellite office in Ottawa, Groupe ABP has been in the business since 1987 and has become one of the leading décor companies in Ontario and Quebec. A company that we are proud to work with and recommend to our clients.
Groupe ABP offers four lines of business; Event Rentals, Custom Made, Exhibitions, and Boutique. With an impressive inventory of furniture rentals, passion, and creativity, the event professionals at Groupe ABP can take your vision and create a masterpiece greater than expected. From small events to extravagant galas, they have the skills and the insights to deliver.
Sustainability is always a key pillar at the Shaw Centre. Groupe ABP has also committed to reducing its environmental footprint. In 2021 they were successfully certified by ECOCERT Canada and met all the criteria of the standard ÉCORESPONSIBLE and were awarded level 1 – engagement. Groupe ABP designs its products with the environment in mind and respects the limits of our planet. They are dedicated to measuring their environmental impact and improving the life cycle of their products.
"ABP is the art of merging design with a sustainable conscience. It's the art of having the right furniture, matching it to your vision to bring it to life. It's the art of having an attentive team that cares about details. With ABP you win. The planet wins. Be creative with less!"

A new addition to the Shaw Centre is our Groupe ABP lounge on level 1, in our Colonel By Foyer North. The lounge furniture is changed several times throughout the year, allowing Groupe ABP to showcase new furniture and décor trends. The lounge is available to all delegates and is a great space to catch up on emails between sessions or to simply relax. It includes a backdrop for capturing your special moments at the Shaw Centre; we invite you to snap a picture and tag Shaw Centre and Groupe ABP on your social media channels.
“Groupe ABP has impressed us time and time again with their wide selection of furniture. You do not see the same setup repeated. It’s always something different and innovative. Their execution is flawless, and understanding the logistics of our building is a huge benefit to our clients and staff. They love to push the envelope and always strive to deliver the wow factor."
