AHS 2015 Conference




A veritable hotbed of creativity and culture, Montreal offers a delectable cocktail of European chic, daring innovation and urban sparkle. This natural duality fuels the city's distinctive character: its Franco-British heritage, its old and modern architecture, and its mix of traditional and ultramodern styles. Montreal is where high-tech goes hand in hand with haute cuisine, where skyscrapers rub shoulders with stylish little boutiques and where international festivals run alongside a multitude of emerging independent events. But above all, it is the 3.7 million Montrealers, their inherent joie-de-vivre, legendary hospitality and attachment to their city that really gives Montreal its full flavour. Because, from the cobblestone streets of Old Montreal to the glitz of downtown to either end of the island, Montrealers really make their city come alive.

The average temperature for this period of the year is around 25°C (77 °F). Montréal will offer a unique experience that both the conference attendees and their accompanying persons will enjoy and remember.
