Press releases

The Québec City Convention Centre is now able to safely welcome events and gatherings thanks to the official resumption of activities. The Centre’s COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan was approved by the Institut national de santé publique du Québec, Québec leading health authority.

Recognized for its exceptionally high health and safety standards, the Québec City Convention Centre just published its Health and Safety Guide, which stipulates the Centre’s norms and initiatives to create an even safer environment for event attendees, exhibitors, staff, partners and suppliers during conferences and conventions.

The Centre’s Health and Safety Guide, which is based on its overall Health and Safety Plan, covers all the preventative measures necessary to protect clients and employees: physical distancing, directional arrows to ensure the safe flow of traffic, adapted layouts and furnishings, extensive and specialized cleaning, reception area with personalized, one-on-one greetings, revamped food and beverage services, trained staff and clear signage. The Québec City Convention Centre’s team, which is anything but conventional, has leveraged its extensive know-how and expertise to create a positive and personal approach as it caters to its clientele.

“Since the beginning of the pandemic, we developed solutions to come back even stronger with safe, comprehensive event services for our clientele and staff. A lot of work has been carried out to accomplish everything we set out to do in just a few short months. We are proud to be ready to host events as of July 2020. Pierre-Michel Bouchard, President and CEO of the Québec City Convention Centre
