Quebec Convention Center to Expand

The Quebec City Convention Center is adding 69,000 square feet of meeting and prefunction space. The facility currently has 100,000 square feet of exhibit space and 30 meeting rooms; when the project is completed in 2013, the center will have a total of 37 meeting rooms. "This expansion will give us a greater ability to accommodate visitors, which is the key to winning convention business," said P.-Michel Bouchard, the facility's CEO. "We can also host more events simultaneously and thus profit from the growing demand in the thriving meetings industry."
