Montréal is Canada's premier meeting destination, and North America's second.

Why? Not just because we’ve developed efficient and user-friendly hospitality and meeting infrastructures located conveniently near each other. Not just because our city is safe, clean and easy to get around in. And not just because we have some of the most exciting offerings the world of food and entertainment has to offer. It’s because we do it in style!

Style in our modern, cutting-edge Palais des congrès (Convention Centre), a playful, multicoloured-glass structure on a brand-new square on the Quartier International. Style in the fabulous food prepared for delegates at our restaurants and hotels. Style in our original boutiques and infamous nightlife. And style in our attitude of helpful friendliness, always taking pleasure in pleasing.

With over 200 U.S. and international flights touching down at newly refurbished Montréal-Trudeau International Airport—serving over 70 international and 25 domestic cities—daily, Montréal is easy to get to from most major destinations.

Our compact, safe and clean downtown is just a 20-minute ride away, where 15,000 of our 26,500 hotel room are located. Eight thousand of them are housed in deluxe properties, such as boutique hotels, and 4,000 are linked directly to the Palais des congrès via the clean, brightly lit 32-km (20-mile) long Underground Pedestrian Network.

Walking is the preferred way of getting around in Montréal, whether above or below ground, at any time of day or night, and safely. Points of interest a little further afield are easily reached by Métro.

Montréal’s work ethic is to work efficiently, so we have time enough to enjoy the beauty and style our city has to offer. We’re eager to share that with delegates, too, where all they have to do at the end of the day is step out into the thick of bustling, fun-loving—and stylish—Montréal.
