History and facts
The Montreal Convention Center is the largest convention and meeting business in the greater Montreal area. Owned by the Government of Quebec, this building is receiving the most conventions and exhibitions annually as the salon of the Motorcycle, Salon National de la Chasse et pèche and Salon of the bride. Building information.
  • Up to 200000 square feet of exhibition space
  • 65 meeting rooms
  • 331700 space rental total
  • 1600 interior parking spaces
  • Total spaces: 1431 500 square feet

The Palais des Congrès de Montreal is located on the northern edge of Old Montreal, into the International district. The expansion of the convention center was very important in helping to revitalize this part of Montreal. It is located at the crossroads of the southern part of the RESO (Montreal underground).

Historical development
In an Olympic context, while Montreal is the centre of the world and that the hotels are proliferating all around, the Quebec government decided to build a large convention centre for the province’s metropolis.

Recent renovations doubled the Convention centre size. The construction lasted from 1999 to 2002 with a loan of 240 million dollars. The integration of historic buildings and the presence of the underground Ville-Marie expressway and Montreal Metro add a lot of works for engineers. The building remained open for the duration of the renovation.

The convention center has thus contributed to make of Montreal the city who receives the most international congresses in Canada.
