The Montréal convention center, Palais des congrès de Montréal, is a high-colour, high-performing meeting space that’s always pushing the envelope in an effort to make human interactions more effective and inspiring. There are now three new immersive conversation spaces to do just that — while simultaneously getting a dose of Québec culture.

In a recent collaboration with the Alliance de l’industrie touristique du Québec, the Palais has created three informal networking spaces within its walls that showcase flagship Québec experiences. The Alliance represents more than 10,000 private businesses and associations to highlight tourism’s crucial contribution to regional vitality.

The three new spaces at the Palais simulate distinctive tourism experiences that are key to the province of Québec’s appeal. Event participants looking for informal spaces for breakout sessions, to relax, chat and network, will be able to enjoy one of these modern and inviting spaces.

Recently, conference-goers have had the chance to enjoy the ski resort experience while kicking back next to a fire or relaxing on a gondola or chair lift. This April will see the installation of a new space emulating the St. Lawrence River (along with another big surprise!), while the fall of 2023 will feature a wilderness theme against the backdrop of the great outdoors. Clients at the Palais will not only get to relax in these settings, but will also have the chance to hold catered events with a specially developed Maestro Culinaire menu that offers a taste of the province’s culinary delicacies.

Designed and developed by the Palais des congrès team with the assistance of Vannoote Design and the marketing agency Cossette, these spaces combine experiential facilities, evocative design elements and unique sensory experiences to create a friendly atmosphere.
