Fabulous fall shaping up for the Québec City Convention Centre

Economic Impact Events

The Québec City Convention Centre is gearing up for bountiful harvest of conferences, shows, and meetings this fall, with over 30,000 delegates expected at the 33 conferences, meetings, and shows on tap for the season.

All these attendees will make a significant contribution to the city’s thriving business tourism sector, generating 50,000 room-nights at Québec City hotels and pumping an estimated $32 million into the local economy.

Teams at the Convention Centre will have their hands full with event hospitality and logistics, particularly in October.

No sooner does the Convention Centre see off the Fédération québécoise des municipalités and their convention than the 3rd International Summit of Cooperatives arrives with its 2,000 decision-makers and managers, business leaders and stakeholders from 93 different countries.

Events continue thick and fast, such as BÉNÉFIQ 2016, the Congrès 2016 de l'Ordre des hygiénistes dentaires du Québec, the Canadian Chemical Engineering (CSChE) Conference, the Québec Veterinary Conference, the FSSS–CSN Conference, Québec City Comiccon, and Cartoon Connection Canada and Pixel Animation.

Renowned speaker

October closes on a high note with Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield. One of the biggest business conference ever held in Québec City, the Junior Chamber International (JCI) World Congress, will be held from October 30 to November 4 at the Québec City Convention Centre. More than 3,000 young professionals age 18 to 40 from 125 countries will descend on Québec City for the event and will get to hear guest speaker Chris Hadfield.
