American and Canadian Meeting Planners Visit Québec City

Destination and Attractions Events

Some twenty event organizers from Canada and the U.S. were guests of the Québec City Convention Centre on Sunday, February 5, 2017, for a cocktail reception and dinner.

The event was part of an educ tour organized by Québec City Business Destination during the Winter Carnival to give these VIP guests a chance to experience winter in Québec City and discover everything the city has to offer as a convention destination.

Guests and partners gathered in the beautiful and centrally located Québec City Convention Centre to break the ice and talk business in a fun and casual atmosphere. The evening featured a presentation on Québec City, a tour of Convention Centre facilities, sugar shack-inspired culinary masterpieces from Chef Gérard Michel, fiddle music by Kattialine Painchaud, and even karaoke for the brave of heart.

The Québec City Business Destination educ tour program

From February 3 to 7, 2017, visiting event organizers took part in a variety of activities including the “joys of winter” at Château Mont-Sainte-Anne, ice canoeing on the St. Lawrence River, and JPdL’s guided walking tour of Québec City.

Guests lodged at the Marriott Québec Centre-Ville and visited a number of hotels, restaurants, sites, and attractions, including Monastère des Augustines for a special activity to recharge their batteries before they left.

Armed with a pass for Carnival sites and a Québec City museums and attractions passport, our visitors had everything they needed to explore during their free time.
