Tourisme Montréal: News and People What's New in Montréal Industry News and Leaders

Come join the industry’s leading experience designers, event strategists, marketers and thought leaders for an inspiring series of workshops, presenters and networking, all while experiencing all that Montréal has to offer at the 2020 PCMA EduCon on June 28 to July 1, 2020!

A meeting of connection, learning and growth

Each year’s PCMA EduCon offers a multi-tiered experience for attendees, with a focus on the newest developments in events and education. Through deep dive topics affecting the industry, Hackathons approaching important topics like how the events community can assist the homeless and direct action towards breaking glass ceilings for all minorities and gender expressions, EduCon is a true trendsetter in event planning.

We’re hyped to host this year, and here’s just 5 reasons attending EduCon in Montréal will leave you just as excited.

1. A city that inspires

An creative and innovative hub, Montréal’s internationally renowned game changers thrill the world. Home base to earth-shakers like Cirque du Soleil and C2 Montréal, EduCon is the perfect opportunity to come and network and learn in a city leading the way forward. And did we mention our status as an UNESCO City of Design?

2. A summer playground

In summer, Montréal erupts in sunshine and greenery, with locals and visitors alike wandering park spaces and sipping and chatting the days away on outdoor terraces. The perfect time for a wander, a bike ride or a boat down the St. Lawrence River, when the summer’s here the time is always right.

3. All that jazz

In tuneful serendipity, EduCon’s dates cross over with the world-famous Festival International de Jazz de Montréal, sure to make downtime hep and happening. For over 40 years, the top musical talent in the world has given over 500 concerts, a whole 2/3 of which are free to all.

4. A place of renewal

Montréal is a city that doesn’t stay put. If you’ve never been, you’re well overdue, and if you’ve already visited you’ll still be surprised by all of the new projects and attractions that open each and every year. Visit Parc Jean-Drapeau’s jaw-dropping Espace 67, walk to the end of the sparkling Grand Quai du Port de Montréal (did someone say “views”?), sample the finest Montréal cuisine at one of the city’s new gourmet food halls or rest easy like royalty in one of the city’s latest hotels.

5. A place (well, many, many, many places) to eat!

Montréal is a foodie paradise, top-notch dining options from morning until night. Start your day with a lip-smacking brunch (something Montréalers know how to do right), then later on sample some genuinely unique nouvelle cuisine tastes of Québec. Enjoy some mid-afternoon or after-dinner mixology magic at one of our stylish cocktail bars before hitting Montréal’s nightlife – full of opportunity for more nibbles whenever hunger strikes.

See you at EduCon 2020!
