New Groundbreaking Guarantees for Event Planners

By Meeting Professionals International | Nov 5, 2019

At Business Events Montréal—the meetings and conventions team of Tourisme Montréal—we’re constantly thinking about how we can reduce uncertainty for event planners.

One recent solution has been to create baseline guarantees to ensure Montréal continues to be a reliable choice for events. It’s a simple, compelling idea that breaks new ground in the industry.

Introducing: The Guaranteed Success Pledge

The Guaranteed Success Pledge is our way of reducing risk for event professions. We’ve distilled the lessons and the successes we’ve had throughout the past decade, and we’re now providing guarantees for event professionals. The Guaranteed Success Pledge is a product of our unwavering confidence in our ability to deliver.

So, What Exactly Is Guaranteed?

We’re guaranteeing attendance for your event. Delegates love Montréal—and we have the numbers to prove it. For the past three years, Montréal attendance forecasts for meetings was clocked at 107.5%. So, we’re putting our money where our mouth is: we are so confident that you’ll reach your target number of attendees, that we will honor our financial commitment for your anticipated number, no questions asked. 

We also guarantee exchange rates. When you reserve the Palais des congrès de Montréal for your event, we guarantee the best exchange rate between when you book and when your event takes place. In other words, if the rate becomes more expensive, we guarantee the better rate. And, as an added bonus, carbon neutrality at the convention centre is guaranteed as well.

Moving Forward

According to the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA), Montréal ranks first in international association meetings in North America. We excel at hosting meetings. From massive conferences, to intimate board meetings—and everything in between—we have the infrastructure and cultural backdrop for effective events. And now success is more guaranteed than ever before.
