The Constellation of Great Montréalers: A new permanent art installation that will continue to grow

Montréal earned the top positions for hosting international association meetings in the 2013 rankings of two prestigious international organizations: the Union of International Associations (UIA) and the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA).

For a third consecutive year, the UIA ranked Montréal first in the Americas for international association meetings. The UIA’s annual International Meetings Statistics Report compiles data from its database of over 66,000 organizations in 300 countries and territories. It identifies events held over at least 3 days with more than 300 participants, or a trade show component, with at least 40% international delegates.

And for a second year in a row, Montréal topped ICCA’s “Country and City Rankings” list, finishing first in North America for international association meetings. Each year, ICCA’s research team analyzes almost 12,000 regularly-occurring association events of 50 people or more that rotate between at least three countries. And once again in 2013, Montréal topped the list, ahead of major meeting destinations such as Toronto, Vancouver, New York, Boston, San Francisco, Washington D.C., San Diego, and Chicago.

So what’s the secret to this international success? Teamwork. The Palais des congrès de Montréal works closely with Tourisme Montréal and the city’s meeting industry leaders to constantly raise the bar, offering event planners a full range of personalized services and cutting-edge event technologies to make each meeting hosted at the Palais a smashing success.

A city that works as a team, a vibrant local community and a world-class convention centre in the heart of an exciting destination that attendees love – no wonder Montréal continues to be the top pick for planners of international association meetings.
