Québec City Business Destination organizes a virtual educational tour for event planners

Press Release

Quebec, June 10, 2020 - Québec City Business Destination recently held an innovative, first-ever virtual educational tour for event planners from June 8 to 10, 2020. The goal of the tour was to keep Québec City as a top-of-mind host city for future international conventions and conferences.

While major public gatherings are still temporarily prohibited, Québec City Business Destination decided to create a virtual educational tour, along with its partners, that presented the city in all of its colours. Educational, playful and highly enticing, this initiative was a huge hit with virtual attendees. Over 80 event planners from across Canada and the United States registered to participate in the virtual tour—a first for the Canadian event industry.

The tour featured webinars, presentations, virtual tours of the city, hotels and venues, wellness activities, recommendations from DMCs and meeting and incentive companies, live cocktail hours, and so much more. Québec City virtually showcased everything it had to offer for event planners; it was the perfect time to speak with event organizers until they can physically visit the city again.

Québec City is like no other destination to hold conferences and conventions. I am very proud of the Québec City Business Destination team, which has been working hard over the past few weeks. I am confident that professional event planners, when the opportunity arises, will quite naturally think of Québec City for their upcoming projects, Mr. Pierre-Michel Bouchard, President of Québec City Business Destination, explained enthusiastically.
