Destinations at last year's event


Off-beat, quirky and full of surprises, Montréal is among North America's most fascinating destinations for both meetings and incentive travel. With an ultramodern Palais des Congrès, just 20 minutes from the airport, Montréal excites and delights its 10 million annual visitors with a wealth of festivals, exceptional restaurants and one-of-a-kind experiences.

Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth

Following a $140 million transformation and reopening in Summer 2017, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth is a gem in the heart of Montréal. The hotel's brand new design blends contemporary flair with vintage notes harking back to the city's golden years, while a new business campus will be among the most modern and technologically advanced anywhere in the world.
