47,045,000 in economic benefits
in only six weeks of activities at the Palais des congrès

Between now and the end of the year, the Palais des congrès de Montréal will be hosting no fewer than eight national and international conventions as well as seven trade shows that will attract a total of 37,200 delegates and 1,186 exhibitors to Montréal. These business tourists will book over 23,000 hotel room nights while in the city to attend events expected to generate $47,045,000 for the Montréal and Québec economy, thus confirming once again the key role business tourism plays in the province’s economic development.

The top host city in America for international conventions, Montréal continues to be a leading event destination. A 2013 finalist for the World Best Convention Centre award, the Palais rivals the world’s biggest convention centres. “Our experienced and enthusiastic teams are ready for the coming weeks, and the energy will be palpable,” says Raymond Larivée, President and CEO of the Palais des congrès de Montréal. “Together with our partners like Capital Catering and Freeman Audio Visual, we look forward to rolling out an unforgettably warm welcome for our customers and their participants,” adds Larivée.   Kitchen turning up the heat
In addition to conventions and trade shows, the Palais will host numerous meetings and special events, including many corporate Holiday Season parties. Capital Catering will therefore be busy wowing guests with unparalleled cuisine, and serving over 50,000 meals. Quite a feat!   Back after the break
The Holiday Season break will be short as Palais des congrès de Montréal will be preparing for the Montréal International Auto Show in early 2015. The doors to the city’s largest consumer show will open on January 16, and will host approximately 200,000 visitors.
