Did you know? The Québec City Convention Centre was the first convention centre in Canada to establish a support program to help organize a sustainable event, in addition to being one of the major players in the development of the responsible event management standard from the Bureau de la normalisation du Québec.

In fact, when you organize an event with us, it will automatically meet the Level 1 requirements of the BNQ 9700-253 Gestion responsable d’événements standard. We’re pioneers in this area and apply good environmental practices for building management (LEED certified) and our event-related food services and operations. This is a major asset when undertaking your eco-friendly approach. After this, it’s up to you to aim for other levels of the BNQ standard, as many of our clients do.

What Event Planners Have to Say

“It’s important for us to choose event partners who share the same vision as us. Our collaboration with the Québec City Convention Centre is an example. They’re proud to put everything in place to protect the environment and offer a green building.”

–Lucie Champagne, President of Champagne Événement

“For the FQM, event eco-responsibility is self-evident, and the Convention Centre’s door is always wide open to help us bring our ideas to life with creative solutions. Over the years, we’ve evolved and improved our practices with their help.”

–Jacques Dupuis, Director of Corporate Affairs and Logistics with the FQM
