Unprecedented adaptability in Montreal
For a fourth consecutive year, Montreal is the top-ranked city in the Americas for the number of international events hosted in 2020, according to the International Meetings Statistics Report, released recently by the Union of International Associations (UIA).
Montreal earned this ranking based on in-person events organised through March 2020, as well as virtual and hybrid events held during the remainder of the year. To limit the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the city’s reputation, several measures were implemented in keeping with the Palais Reopening Operating Guide to Running Events with Safety Standards (PROGRESS).
New services include a turnkey solution for organising hybrid events and an audio and video production studio, which leverage technologies to combine in-person events and virtual discussions in real time, allowing meeting and event organisers to “reinvent themselves” and attract more participants to their events.
