The Palais des congrès de Montréal and Tourisme Montréal have announced the city will be hosting the One Young World Summit in May 2024, drawing some 2,500 inspiring young people from all over the world and generating an estimated $4.4 million in tourism revenues along with 7,000 hotel room nights.
The One Young World Summit is an annual three-day event attended by thousands of promising young delegates from 190+ countries and all walks of professional life. It features a rich roster of inspiring conferences given by influential humanitarian, political and business leaders.
The purpose is to give delegates the means to maximize the social impact of their professional and personal initiatives, while also mentoring them on best sustainability practices. At the end of the Summit, these delegates become One Young World Ambassadors and access a global network that serves to accelerate and optimize their ventures.
“The One Young World Summit coming to the Palais is evidence that despite the impacts of the pandemic, Montréal remains a highly attractive host city for major events. The cooperation shown by the various stakeholders, the creativity of our offering, and the Montréal brand confirm we are primed for getting business back on track,”commented Luc Charbonneau, Director of Business Development and Strategic Alliances of the Palais des congrès de Montréal.
