Sustainable meetings made easy

Tourisme Montréal recently launched its new sustainable tourism strategy, which aims to promote Montréal through a more eco-responsible and community-oriented approach to tourism. We’re moving forward with changes that will make Montréal more sustainable and resilient at many levels – economic, social, cultural and environmental. And this includes, of course, helping event professionals plan more sustainable meetings and sports events.
