What's New in Montréal Montréal Partners

C2 Montréal is an annual event that unites commerce and creativity. Taking place from September 26 – 28, the three-day business conference exists to help leaders invent the future of business. By zooming out to observe all areas of society and by using creativity as the catalyst to drive change, attendees are given the opportunity to access new ways of thinking and form new collaborations.

Sure, it’s a business conference. But ask anyone who has attended, and they’ll tell you that it’s different.

Fresh theme

The theme for this 11th edition of C2 Montréal is MONTRÉAL IGNITED. The event will help participants dive into all the ways we can ignite, elevate, and empower to bring community together to build a playbook for propelling its ongoing revitalization and growth. Join business and cultural leaders, innovative change makers, and the next generation of bold forward thinkers as they ideate, craft, and implement solutions for building a dynamic and exciting future.

New venue

Like the city that inspired it, C2 Montréal is a vibrant hub for business, creativity, innovation, and opportunity, so it’s fitting that C2 Montréal will now take place in the heart of downtown, this year at the iconic Place Ville Marie complex and surrounding area. By situating the event in the core of Montréal, C2 Montréal is reaffirming its commitment to the city and to ensuring that it not only shines but thrives.
