The Québec City Convention Centre publishes its 2019-2020 annual report

Press releases

The Société du Centre des congrès de Québec has published its annual report for the 2019-2020 fiscal year, covering the period of April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020. In particular, the report presents the Convention Centre’s accomplishments, objectives, results, financial statements and update with regards to its sustainable development initiatives.

The results for 2019-2020 are remarkable, in the number of events hosted at the Québec City Convention Centre as well as in the revenues and the economic spinoffs generated for the region and province. The overall performance is excellent despite a year end hindered by the pandemic and the interruption of events as ordered by the Government of Québec.

“All-in-all, I’m satisfied with our performance. We had 214 events planned for 2019-2020. We ended up hosting 200 events, including 74 conventions—14 of which were international events. These activities and the presence of thousands of attendees in the city generated economic spinoffs of $100.9 million. Unfortunately, the pandemic and related lockdown measures resulted in the cancellation of 14 events, a loss of revenue of $460,000, and a shortfall of $15 million in economic benefits for the region. Without these cancellations, we would have had one of our best years,” said Pierre-Michel Bouchard, President and CEO.

This positive performance is the result of the efforts of a motivated and dedicated team that is focused on achieving the Québec City Convention Centre’s goals. The excellence and professionalism demonstrated by all those involved in this success have also helped the Convention Centre obtain a near-perfect customer satisfaction rating.
