Consumer shows meet with success, again


Year after year, many large-scale consumer shows descend on Montréal’s downtown core to avail themselves of the quality venues offered by the Palais des congrès.

2011 ended wonderfully with the Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal’s Nutcracker Market. Between November 24 and December 4, 2011, some 15,000 people, i.e. nearly 50% more than in 2010, ambled along the Palais’ shopping concourse for a unique shopping experience inspired by the magic of the Holidays. 2012 got off to a great start as over 205,000 invaded the Palais for the 44th Montréal International Auto Show, from January 16 to 22.

After automobiles, come the motorcycles! From February 24 to 26, 2012, the motorcycling community converged on the Montréal Motorcycle Show for a thrilling event. Other must-see consumer shows that chose the Palais’ versatile and modern facilities for their event include the Eat Well and Living Green Expo, which once again invites everyone interested in healthy food, ecology and global health to come meet the many exhibitors that will be on hand for their 15th edition, from March 16 to 18, 2012.
