The Palais des congrès de Montréal has assembled a group of leaders representing eight of the city’s key economic sectors to form a new Multisector Strategic Taskforce. The role of these experienced ambassadors will be to develop and nurture ties with researchers, scientists and business executives who might be inclined to actively participate in the process of bringing large-scale international gatherings to Montréal. They will be able to mine their networks for topnotch collaborators and match them with specific conferences.
Recognised as a knowledge hub, Montréal works closely with its Ambassadors Club and partners to advocate for the major sectors driving the Montréal and Québec economy. During the course of the Club’s 33 years, its members have definitely made a difference, attracting 201 events that have drawn nearly 475,000 participants to the region.
Hany Moustapha, President of the Ambassadors Club, said: “Conventions represent a privileged opportunity to exchange with our peers from all over the world, and they help push the boundaries of knowledge for our industries. These intellectual benefits greatly contribute to Montréal’s international reputation,”.
