Social Activities

We are pleased to offer several social activities throughout the congress. These allow attendees to network with colleagues from across the world while getting a taste of the Montreal lifestyle.

All congress social activities are included in your registration fee.



Grand Opening Reception

Sunday, April 23

The Grand Opening Reception is included in your registration fee and will take place within walking distance at the MTELUS Centre. Enjoy an evening of culinary delights and surprise entertainment! Located on Ste. Catherine St., in the heart of downtown Montreal, MTELUS seems to have been gifted with nine lives like a cat. The building first housed a skating rink in 1884, then a summer theatre the following year. Renamed the “Théâtre français” in 1893, it presented theatre plays for 30 years, welcoming the great Sarah Bernhardt in 1905.

This event is included in your registration and your first beverage will be on us.

Reception in Marketplace

Come to the marketplace reception and network with your peers, as well as congress sponsors and Exhibitors, while enjoying light hors d’oeuvres. This event is included in your registration; however, beverages must be purchased at cash bars.

Closing Gala – Jazzing it Up!

Tuesday, April 25

Enjoy a three-course meal, live entertainment, and an opportunity to kick up your heels on the dance floor! The closing gala is included in your registration fee.
