Palais des congrès de Montréal : Among the world’s best convention centres


MONTRÉAL, July 17, 2018 – The Palais des congrès de Montréal emerged as the runner-up for the APEX Award in Recognition of the Highest Client Rating Received by a Convention Centre. The Palais earned the prestigious international accolade, presented on July 3 in London, on the strength of an exceptional score.

The AIPC APEX Award honours the world’s convention centre with the best customer satisfaction rating for quality. This comes on the heels of the AIPC having recently Gold Quality Standard certified the Palais des congrès, meaning the Montréal venue now joins a very small group of convention centres having both received that certification and also been shortlisted for the APEX Award in recognition of their customer service excellence. “We are very proud of this distinction, which reflects how passionate our teams are about satisfying our clients,” declared Raymond Larivée, President and CEO of the Palais des congrès de Montréal. “When you combine our employees’ knowhow with the excellent quality of our offering, this allows us to deliver the very best to our customers, as we continually strive to exceed their expectations,” he added.

AIPC Apex Award
The AIPC Apex Award is a bi-annual recognition of excellence in convention centre customer service quality. The winner and the two runners-up are determined on the basis of a comprehensive analysis of centre performance in a wide range of areas based on customer satisfaction surveys. A separate independent evaluation process carried out by Ipsos ensures a review of factors such as project management quality, as well as catering and technical capacity.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
