When the snow melts and the warm sun shines down Mont Royale, all of Montréal celebrates! So come for the conference and enjoy the continental atmosphere of the city founded by Jacques Cartier in 1642. After the bustle of papers, workshops and networking, head for a terrasse and enjoy a relaxing glass of wine under colorful umbrellas or opt for the Bateau-Mouche cruise out of the port of Old Montréal - a 15 minute walk from Fairmont Le Reine Elizabeth - and enjoy stunning views of the islands that make up the city and its environs.
A day spent in Old Montréal is terrific for sightseeing. Cobblestone streets, historic buildings, including the historic Basilique Notre-Dame, and some of the best restaurants in North America await you. There’s also Quartier latin, Quartier des spectacles and Parc du Mont-Royal, which provides a panoramic view of the city. You can also rent a bike and explore some of the 600 kilometers of trails that wind through the city and along the St. Lawrence River. Or find your way to Mount Royal, the beach at Isle Notre-Dame or catch an outdoor move at Théâtre de Verdure in Parc La Fontaine.
And “remember:” - proposals are due 1 November! Je me souviens, mes amis!
