Montréal is easy to fall in love with. Why is that? The city offers beautiful architecture, great food, and a playful spirit. Event professionals keep coming back because of the curb appeal for their attendees. People want to visit Montréal — and that bodes well for attendance numbers.
But we’re more than curb appeal. Another reason event professionals keep returning is because Montréal makes planning events easy.
“Easy” is our middle name
How exactly does Montréal make it easy to plan events? To start with, we offer a dedicated team that stays with you every step of the way. Specifically, we partner you with a savvy convention services manager who stays with you from start to finish, ensuring that you get what you need, when you need it. That single point of contact streamlines your life, making the process easier. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Other ways we support you:
- Financial assistance
- Customs support (such as a custom’s broker)
- Tax refunds
- A favourable currency (affordability!)
- Convention centre at fixed rate
- Attendance-building tools
- Support from our marketing team
Also: A sustainable destination
Tourisme Montréal recently unveiled an ambitious Sustainable Destination Policy that concerns, of course, the environment, but one that also addresses social impact. What does that mean for you? Well, we help you organize the most responsible event. From a sustainable guidebook, to rebates for sustainable actions, to helping achieve ecological certification, we make it easier to limit ecological impact while increasing social impact.
The world is catching on
For the five years in a row, Montréal has topped the Union of International Associations (UIA) annual list of top host cities for international conventions in the Americas. Montréal’s leading edge keeps the city in first place amongst some major event host destinations in Canada, such as Vancouver, Calgary, and Toronto, and internationally, such as New York, Washington, Chicago, and more.
