This is the convention center near downtown. Nothing special, just a big building where lots of people come together.

To put it shortly, this place is huge. Taking up most of an entire city block (or more!), with three levels, there is a LOT of floor space here. However, it is laid out fairly well, and very clean. The staff throughout the facility is...More

This massive convention center with more than 200,000 sq. ft. of exhibition space also has dining and retail options under one roof. The building is wrapped in multicolored transparent glass panels that when the sun shone through created a rainbow kaleidoscope effect inside. Art installations...More

Definitely one of the more higher quality convention centers I've exhibited at. Having a great amount of food vendors onsite is huge asset (10+ restaurants with different cuisine options). Lots of additional rooms available for breakout sessions, workshops or other seminars as well.

Has all the basic amenities for big and small audiences. Shops and restaurants below including Timmy's! My only criticism...no wifi included with our conference fees!

Cities offer few areas where one can sit for a while without having to eat, drink or pay our way in. The Convention Center has a comfortable sitting area near Chinatown and metro Place d'Armes. If you want to take a break from walking and...More

The colorful windows and the pink trees added a colorful note to an otherwise dull conference. Bathrooms could have been located better but in general it was a fine conference location. Easy to navigate.

Went to Montreal Comiccon and was disappointed with this conference centre. Barely any food available and worst situation was the lack of bathrooms in the large main conference area.

Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today
the Quartier International is like a transversal piece
of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most
apparent at its focal point, the Palais des Congres, a
convention centre and retail space with a
multi-coloured glass exterior and an equally bold
interior motif. Outdoors too, the Quartier is friendly
towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted

The Westin Hotel staff is very helpful, 24/7, and, as the answers to your questions change depending on what events are taking place, you should ask the Westin staff.
