New Ambassadors help Montréal shine

The Palais des congrès de Montréal welcomed new members to its Ambassadors Club during a ceremony on March 16, 2017 attended by Québec Minister of Tourism Julie Boulet. These new Ambassadors were honoured for their active role in bringing each an international convention to Montréal. These events will contribute over $45 M to the city’s and province’s economy by attracting 18,000+ business tourists who will be booking more than 50,000 room nights in hotels across Montréal.

The Recognition Award Gala salutes the exceptional contribution of influential and dynamic individuals from Montréal’s various segments of excellence who step outside of their usual professions to actively bring international conventions to the city, and thus help generate economic and intellectual benefits for the city and province.
