Thirsty and hungry chess players and chess pieces enjoyed some refreshments and food after this year’s event on May 12 at the Royal Oak on 180 Kent St. Ottawa, Ontario only a short walk from Parliament Hill.

Event Production, Design and Marketing

I set up MP Consolidated Inc. to own the event planning, sponsorship and ancillary elements of the Live Chess production in order to ensure that this pure expression would be protected along with participants, sponsors and stakeholders. The 2024 event was a success. 2025 and beyond look to be fantastic.

Sponsors are important to offset organization, hosting and other associated costs that would divert funds from the beneficiary of the event : Alzheimer’s Society of Canada & Alzheimer’s Society of Lanark Leeds Grenville

There is no advertising permitted on Parliament Hill however this does not prohibit pre and post brand recognition and other important benefits to those organizations that wish to show their support of the event and the cause.

Matt Paul applied for the permit to host the event on Parliament Hill on May 12, 2024 from 2-5 pm subject to Parliament Rules regarding the use of Parliament which govern all participants. The permit is not transferrable however the event “Live Chess on Parliament” is associated with Matt Paul in connection with the event in terms of communication, marketing and the purpose of raising funds to support Alzheimer’s Society of Canada.

Matt Paul notified and received permission and support from Alzheimer’s Society of Canada to conduct the “Live Chess on Parliament” promotional activities with the understanding that it will benefit the work of this organization to the extent that these benefits are realizable and transferable. It is the hope that people will visit www.alzheimer.ca and donate, get involved or at minimum raise their consciousness about the important work of the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada and their various local units.
