Québec: So welcoming

Organize your conventions and meetings by the book—but do it with style! With its leading-edge infrastructures, Québec is a welcoming and well-connected business destination. Montréal and Québec City are both dream settings for conferences and seminars. Other regions are also excellent choices, letting you combine professional encounters and leisure activities in a magnificent setting. Mix business with pleasure: good food, luxuriant comfort and activities galore!

Montréal at a glance

Québec’s largest city boasts large-capacity conference centres equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Attendees can enjoy top-tier hotels and the city’s best restaurants. The Palais des congrès, which links to the metro and the “underground city,” is ideally positioned at the gateway to the Old Port, close to a host of tourist attractions and festival sites. In this city where yesterday rubs elbows with tomorrow, it’s easy to incorporate other activities into your business schedule: shopping, cultural outings, fitness and even… rafting!

 

Québec City at a glance

Fizzing with the unique alchemy of Old-meets-New World, Québec City is highly in demand for international events. Its ultra-modern Centre des congrès stands just outside the walls of the old city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In terms of equipment, organizers have access to the latest technology. The perfect starting point for a whale-watching cruise on the St. Lawrence, the romantic capital also harbours numerous treasures: gourmet restaurants, museums, stunning river views and more.

Incentive travel

Many Québec host agencies specialize in incentive travel and can propose activities that are tailor-made for motivation getaways. They’ll draw you up a custom program that will let you experience your destination from a whole new angle.

Montréal and Québec City offer business and incentive travellers a range of original meeting venues: museums, an art deco cinema, 18th-century buildings, an Olympic Tower and even a cruise!
