Prestigious conventions, invaluable benefits!


All throughout 2015, we’ve had numerous prestigious international associations confirm they will be holding a major convention at the Palais des congrès de Montréal in the coming years.

For instance, Montréal and the Palais will be hosting luminaries from various notable fields via events such as:

Invaluable benefits
The above conventions alone will attract nearly 10,000 delegates to Montréal, and in the process generate almost $30 million for the province’s economy. Not to mention the invaluable intellectual benefits they will bring to the health science, IT, atmospheric science and security communities. Which is why Dr. Sylvain Lanthier of the MUHC Vascular Neurology Program and Associate Professor of Neuroscience at Université de Montréal commented: “In 2018, during the World Stroke Congress organized by the Canadian Stroke Consortium, 5,000 participants from all over the world will be coming to Montréal to share the very latest developments in vascular neurology, from basic research to emerging treatments for acute strokes, plus new stroke prevention and rehabilitation methods. It’ll also be an opportunity for them to discover Montréal and its many attractions.”

International recognition
For his part, Mr. Gordon Young, Former President of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences, and one of the local champions involved in bringing the IUGG General Assembly to Montréal, stated: “Every time a convention of this magnitude is held in Montréal, it’s an opportunity for the international scientific community to appreciate the scope of the expertise found in the city and nationwide, and this positions our industrial and academic communities favourably worldwide.” Since 2010, the Union of International Associations (UIA) has been ranking Montréal first in the Americas for number of international association events hosted, a feat that’s especially been made possible thanks to the support of the city’s researchers, specialists and professionals who play an instrumental role in the conventions’ content and schedule.
