Event held at the Palais wins award

In January, the Palais was thrilled and proud to learn that the Montréal-based Alison Silcof event planning firm won two awards at the Special Events Gala Awards in Tampa, Florida.

Better still, the firm won the prestigious award for Best Event for a Corporation or Association – Budget Above $500,000, for a corporate event it organized at the Palais des congrès de Montréal in July 2011 for a U.S. client.

50,000 sq. ft. of the Palais were remarkably transformed for the event, whose theme was frost and winter. So in the thick of summer, 1,300 guests got the opportunity to walk through an « ice tunnel » and enter a truly original crystalline winter wonderland.
