We are very fortunate here in Montreal, as the city has so much to offer, including some really great venues to hold every kind of event imaginable. Same as us humans, venues come in all shapes and sizes to accommodate all of your needs and most original ideas. As an event planner, you have to know your city fairly well in order to be able to advise your clients on the best location for their event. There are so many things to consider when planning an event, and location is a huge part of it. Depending on the kind of event you are planning, you want to choose a venue that is easily accessible for your guests as well as functional and pleasing to the eye.
There are venues for all seasons as well. If you are planning a summer event, like say a corporate cocktail party for example, a great place to start is the Palais des congrès de Montréal. Located at the edge of Old Montreal and Downtown, this venue is directly accessible by metro and has a vast parking facility as well. They offer several space rentals on about 5 different levels, including the terrace level, which is a huge outdoor space that totals about 19,500 sq. ft. in total, with beautiful landscaping and breathtaking views of the city. The entire terrace can accommodate 630 guests in a cocktail formula, or 288 guests for a banquet style event. It also boasts a tent just in case the weather doesn’t cooperate on the day of your event, so your guests will still be able to enjoy the outdoors, without getting rained on. The lounge that communicates directly to the terrace houses a conference room with plasma TV, a private sitting room, kitchen and a coat check for your convenience.
