About Montréal


Welcome to Montréal - a captivating blend of old and new, with stone-walled taverns, candlelit drinking dens, wild festivals and a cutting-edge arts scene. Visitors come to try legendary bagels, poutine, and maple syrup. Others spend their time exploring old town Montréal, a part of town that dates back to 1642. Whatever draws you to Montreál, 2017 BIO World Congress will be another exciting reason to visit next July!
