Life sciences generate 4 conferences for Québec City


The life sciences industry is booming in the Québec City area and features prominently in the economy. The city is an innovation hub brimming with expertise and development potential thanks to its key players, research centres, businesses, and investment.

This vitality is also reflected in the growing number of Canadian, American, and international organizations in this field choosing Québec City and the Québec City Convention Centre for their events. Plus, more than 30% of events held at the Québec City Convention Centre are connected to the fertile field of life sciences.

In December 2017, the Québec City Convention Centre confirmed four new major life sciences conferences. Together, these events should generate almost $5 million in economic spinoffs for Québec.


October 3 to 5, 2019
10th Canadian Conference on Dementia
Delegate: Pénélope Dinan-Mitchell

June 18 to 21, 2020
Canadian Veterinary Medical Association Convention
Delegate: Lynn Chiasson

October 14 to 17, 2020
Canadian Society of Internal Medicine Annual Meeting
Delegate: Lynn Chiasson

These four new conferences were secured thanks to the promotional and sales efforts of the convention centre’s commercial delegates. As a result, the capital is becoming the gathering place for scientists who come to share their discoveries and innovations. The destination’s draw is undeniable for scientific organizations the world over that hold conventions.
