“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.
