Big or Small, We Bring Your Events to Life

At the Québec City Convention Centre, our anything-but-conventional team will do everything it takes to bring your event to life. Our versatile and safe meeting, convention and trade show spaces are configured to host events big and small for groups ranging from 10 to 4,000. From conventions, fairs, conferences, exhibitions, and business meetings to banquets, receptions, shows, and gala evenings, we do it all. Built on a human scale, the Convention Centre has a wide range of meeting rooms, VIP areas, foyers, and reception halls where participants can mingle freely and network.


Every year, we host small, mid-sized, and major conventions for companies, organizations, and associations in every field of endeavour. These can take up the entire Convention Centre or be held in specific sections. Our seasoned staff will help you prepare every aspect of the event: plenary sessions, talks, opening ceremonies, banquets, galas, coffee breaks, shows, exhibits, poster sessions for scientific conferences, and more. Our versatile multipurpose rooms are designed to adapt to your needs and create the perfect setting for any gathering. No matter the size of the event, your participants will receive impeccable customer service from our expert team.

Fairs, Exhibitions and Trade Shows

The Québec City Convention Centre hosts public and private fairs throughout the year, including the Québec City International Book Fair (Salon international du livre de Québec), Comiccon, the BMR Trade Show, and more. Our vast Exhibit Hall is one of the largest in Québec City and can accommodate over 400 booths. With the Main Hall, ticketing, and seven-dock loading area all in close proximity, event logistics are made that much easier. Our Convention Hall and Multipurpose Hall are both highly adaptable, making it easy to run activities and install booths. For smaller activities, all of the large halls can be partitioned to suit your requirements.
