Montreal's Palais des Congres Earns AIPC Gold




Good news from Canada today, where the Palais des congrès de Montréal has earned the highest level of quality certification attributable to convention centers, joining 25 other convention centers around the world who have achieved AIPC Gold Quality Standards international certification. 


 
AIPC Quality Standards certification measures a convention center’s quality and management performance in 10 specific areas: Customer Service, Quality of Facilities and Operations, Employee Relations, Health, Safety, Security and Emergency Response, Financial Integrity, Community Relations, Environmental Responsibility, Industry Relations and Supplier Relations. 
 
The Palais des congrès de Montréal has been seeing some positive numbers: For the 2014-2015 year, the convention center will have hosted 127,000 convention-goers, more than ever before. For 2015-2016, 210,300 room nights have already been booked for business tourism purposes, up 39 percent compared to the average for the last five years. The events for these two years alone will have generated nearly half a billion dollars for the economy. 
 
In addition to the AIPC certification, the Palais des congrès de Montréal has earned several other lauds recently. Tourisme Montréal recently awarded a Ulysse prize to the Palais, in the convention services category, for the "inventiveness of its IT modernization project." And the event technologies that resulted from the project have already been garnering awards of their own, including the Digital Signage Expo APEX top prize in the Event Venues category in recognition of the flexibility of the Palais’ digital signage.
