Cosmopolitan city of innovation
At the confluence of North America and Europe, Montréal is where the world comes to meet and exchange ideas in a safe, friendly, and easy to navigate environment.
Infused with Old World charm and New World energy, French-speaking Montréal is a cosmopolitan city of innovation that attracts some of the best and brightest minds from across the globe.
The year 2017 will be exceptional in Montréal. Not only will the city be celebrating its 375th anniversary, but citizens and visitors alike will also be marking the 50th anniversaries of the Montréal Métro system and Expo 67 (the World Fair held in Montréal in 1967), as well as the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation. This landmark moment will showcase the city with exciting, new transformations fundamentally linked to water, road, rail, and air transport. As an exciting international destination whose history of progress has been directly related to its ability to create efficient transportation networks, Montréal can provide a uniquely inspiring atmosphere for the 2017 UITP Global Public Transport Summit.
