Educate a city on Parkinson’s. We did it.

Tourisme Montréal and the Palais des congrès de Montréal worked with the 2013 World Parkinson Congress to bring together over 3,500 researchers, members of the medical community and people whose daily lives are affected by the disease. But we didn’t stop there. We went to great lengths to make the conference and Montréal accessible and welcoming for the 50% of the attendees who were affected by Parkinson’s.

We worked with Parkinson Québec, Parkinson Society Canada and the World Parkinson Coalition to get Montréal Parkinson’s-ready by offering training sessions to everyone from hotel and airport staff to taxi drivers and restaurant employees on how to interact and care for people living with Parkinson’s. In the end, we helped ensure the 2013 World Parkinson Congress would leave a lasting impression on the attendees and on Montréal.

We had someone from Tourisme Montréal sit on our committee for the entire two years of planning. She was our liaison to the city.
