What’s so great about Québec City?8 Reasons to Choose Québec City

Québec City is known and loved for its European charm, welcoming locals, infectious energy, and, of course, for Old Québec—a treasured UNESCO World Heritage Site. As the cradle of French civilization in North America, this port city, provincial capital, and thriving technology hub wears its many identities with pride. The city has its feet planted firmly in the 21st century and boasts a flourishing economy that extends into some of the hottest new sectors.

This economic success is due in part to the city’s concentration of research centers—one of the highest in Canada and the Northeastern United States. A place of knowledge, innovation, and creativity, Québec City offers a wealth of business opportunities in a unique cultural setting. It’s that singular mix of qualities that has made it one of Canada’s top travel and convention destinations and the best city in Canada according to Travel + Leisure (2016 World’s Best Awards, Best Cities in Canada).

The peaceful streets are a real bonus for visitors and convention attendees, making Québec City the ideal location for high security summits and events with high profile guests. The Summit of the Americas and the Francophone Summit, attended by heads of state and dignitaries from around the world, have both been held at the Québec City Convention Centre—a testament to its standing as a world-class venue.
