Montréal is charming year round, thanks to its many attractions and festive atmosphere. Visitors who explore the city marvel at the lively streets, the contrasts and the harmony they can experience safely day or night. Ideally located at the heart of the city's international district, the Palais is within walking distance of Montréal's business centre, Chinatown, arts and entertainment district, multimedia core and Old Montréal.

You can find a myriad of leisure activities to enjoy nearby, as well as boutiques, theatres and museums to visit. The Montréal Biodôme offers a close encounter with its four Ecosystems of the Americas, where over 4,800 animals from 230 different species and 750 plant types coexist under the same roof. Experienced nature interpreters accompany guests on a trip that begins in the lush Tropical Rainforest, after which they travel to observe lynx, beavers, and otters in the Laurentian Maple Forest. The next stage allows visitors to appreciate the numerous birds and rich underwater fauna inhabiting the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and the voyage concludes with the penguins and auks in the Sub-Antarctic Islands. A visit to the Montréal Biodôme is a unique experience.

While you are attending the Annual Meeting, be sure to take your children to the Blue Metropolis Children's Festival which takes place from April 23-28, 2013. Close to 50 authors, illustrators, storytellers, actors and musicians share their literary universe through exciting workshops, meetings with artists and literary shows.
