Why Montreal
Why Montréal?
By Luc Charbonneau, Director, Business Development and Strategic Alliances, The Palais des congrès de Montréal

Did you know, that…?

+ Montréal leads the North American convention cities by hosting more international conventions than any other North American city. In fact, UIA ranked Montréal first in the Americas five times in a row from 2011 to 2015! Associations often get attendance records in Montréal since the city is so attractive to delegates.

+ The Palais des congrès de Montréal (convention centre) is located downtown, within a 10-minute walk from 15,000 hotel rooms. 4,000 of these rooms are even linked to the Palais by the underground city. No need for shuttle buses here! And with its European flair, its North American vibe and its welcoming bilingual population, Montréal is yours to discover safely all year-round.
