Montréal Adding a spark of creativity
Up and coming The New City Gas Co. building is located just south of downtown Montréal.
From its legendary gastronomy to its calen- dar of more than one hundred festivals each year, Montréal is a hotbed of creativity that sets the stage for original thinking and bold new ideas. Meeting venues reflect this originality,
from the stunning architecture and flexible spaces of Montréal’s convention center, the Palais des congrès, to the many new ven-
ues that have recently arrived on the scene. The Phi Centre is a four-floor “smart” build- ing, with spaces like canvases that adapt to a diverse range of activities — from confer- ences to interactive installations. Opening this fall in Old Montréal, the Mariners House is a completely redesigned, multipurpose space equipped with the latest technology, an audio- visual room for meetings and conferences, plus a rooftop terrace affording panoramic views of the Old Port. Also new on the scene is L’Arsenal, an impressive century-old space featuring a spectacular 20,000-square-foot main hall, plus a fully equipped, 2,000-square- foot catering kitchen. Montréal has always been a magnet for
creative minds, and the city drew 1,250 of them for the incredibly successful inaugu- ral edition of the C2-MTL (Creativity + Com- merce) conference in May. This international
gathering explored the ways that fostering creativity can drive business success, with high-profile keynote speakers such as Ari- anna Hufington and Francis Ford Coppola. C2-MTL was staged in a facility as original as the event itself: the New City Gas Co. building, a 19th-century historical landmark in Grifin- town that has been given a new vocation as a cutting-edge venue. Its rugged industrial character served as a surprising counter- point to C2-MTL’s high-tech visual effects and multimedia displays. The 2013 edition prom- ises to be even more exciting, with renowned French designer Philippe Starck leading the lineup of prestigious speakers. Discover how Montréal can add a spark of
creative inspiration to make your next meet- ing the most successful and memorable ever.
