Enjoyed the exhibit I saw along with the decor… especially those hanged umbrellas that make the hall so colourful. I love the foil hallway with the lighting, that giant rubber duck, the mushroom and the circle structure you get to scream into and lights up, very cool!

Outstanding facilities. Well designed. Metro access is a plus. Right in centre of Montreal, steps from the port and old city.

What an awesome experience! We attended the annual EPICURE Conference, which was hosted in Montréal this year. Palais Des Congres was the perfect location! It's downtown and accessible to everything. Our hotel was across the street, the metro station was downstairs, and there are restaurants and coffee shops downstairs. It was the perfect host site!

Plus, the staff was so attentive and helpful! There were over 1,000 of us there - some French speaking, some English speaking - and they were so accommodating. In fact, after just a few days, some of them knew many of us by name and engaged with such kindness.

EPIC Montréal 2023 was an excellent experience, and it was much in part due to the host site. If ever looking for a venue to host a large conference, Palais Des Congres would be an ideal choice.

This is a large colourful convention centre which is clearly very popular with the convention organisers. Several places to eat or get a coffee on the ground floor. It is centrally located and very well connected with the Metro system.

This is a convention center at the Place D'Armes and very close to Vieux Montreal. Well served by the Metro. It is not pretty but is practical.

Drove up to see the auto show at the Palais. What a great convention space. Nearly every major brand was represented. Parking was only $25 for the day and was secure and heated. Located next to the Old Port so there were great dining options in the area.

The most beautiful Christmas shopping market in the Heart of Montreal.

there were hundreds of exhibitors offering everything from gourmet food and hand-knit mittens, from toys and crafts to décor items and wall art, to gorgeous jewelry, and sweet-smelling candles. I found fabulous Alpaca Socks, scarf & mittens as christmas gifts as well as the most divine chocolate truffles as gifts.

The knowledge that all the exhibitors donate their sale proceeds from the Nutcracker Market, which is organized by Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, will help bring the ballet to 2,800 sick kids and children from underprivileged areas.

Unique Fabulous treasures and also a wonderful way to support a beautiful charity.

If you are in Montreal in late November to mid December this is the place to find unique Christmas gift items. I'll be going back next year.
