Fountain Tire Annual Conference, Ottawa/Gatineau area


Fountain Tire is a very Canadian brand, and often cited as one of Canada’s best managed companies. No wonder – their sales growth and expansion across Canada is ongoing.

Started as a service in Alberta’s farm country to service vehicles at the farm, it quickly expanded to the automotive and fleet tire and repair servicing brand it is today. 

And this year’s Annual Conference was perhaps a bit special – Fountain Tire is celebrating its 60th anniversary.  The unique location of Ottawa / Gatineau was selected as Fountain Tire’s expansion across Ontario moves forward.  At the luxurious Hilton Lac Leamy just over the river from Ottawa the owners and managers of Fountain Tire gathered to share critical insight into new business upgrades, expansion plans, 60th anniversary celebrations, and of course old fashioned networking and camaraderie. 

With multiple years as the supplier of key visuals to this event Coast Mountain was pleased to tag along to the event out east, and a 5 day photo shoot ensued. Highlights included the launch of their 60th anniversary ‘Drive-In Movie Tour’ across 12 cities in Canada coming this summer, a keynote speech by CBC commentator Rex Murphy, and a fabulous Canadiana Cabin Fever party on the final eve.  As part of this relaxed party, a Lip Sync performance contest was held, and judged by Bob and Doug Mackenzie stand-ins. 

Coast Mountain covered all aspects of the meetings, receptions, parties, speakers, and even provided a new Head Shot portrait of all 160 managers and owners during the first 2 days of the event.  There was also the well engaged Photo booth of course, and guests enjoyed a final night slide show presentation that captured the soul and spirit of the unique bond that forms at these annual meetings.

We’re proud of the deep connections that form when clients engage us on a yearly basis, and feel that the quality and depth of photography is enhanced when we get to know the true spirit of the people that make a company great.  We certainly feel that spirit with Fountain Tire.
