Travel partners Discover Quebec in Toronto

Travel partners Discover Quebec in Toronto

“Quebec this year has really been in vogue… it’s having an amazing year,” said Juan Pablo Suarez of Destination Québec Toronto.

Destination Québec’s annual travel trade event welcomed more than 80 buyers and media to Discover Québec on Oct. 13. The guests mingled and networked with 24 Québec partners to discover what’s new and what’s happening in La Belle Province, across more than 120 individual one-on-one appointments.

Montreal will host over 10 million tourists this year – the first time the city’s topped that figure in a 12-month period. This is good news for all of Québec, Suarez recently told the guests at the Toronto Region Board of Trade.

Québec City was awarded the 'Cultural Centre of the Year' at the Leading Culture Destinations Awards gala in London, it was announced Oct. 3. “It’s been a great year in terms of international exposure,” added Québec City Tourism director André Roy. “After being named the top tourist destination in Canada by Travel + Leisure in July, our innovative cultural offerings must have charmed the jury. What a wonderful showcase for Québec City as a tourist destination!”

SKI Magazine readers have once again voted Tremblant the top ski resort in Eastern North America, as well as rating it in the top 10 in other highly sought-after categories.

Montréal will celebrate its 375th anniversary in 2017 and the countdown has begun. While the actual date is May 17, the festivities will begin mid-December and will run through 2017.

Québec will, as usual, embrace winter. Igloofest (Jan. 14 to Feb. 6) will bring together thousands of fans of electronic music to dance under the stars at the Old Port of Montréal, while The Hôtel de Glace (Ice Hotel) will appear for the first time at Valcartier Vacation Village, near Quebec City. This ephemeral work of art, where one can spend the night, has been a must-see attraction since 2001.

The Quebec Winter Carnival (Jan. 27 – Feb. 12) – the largest winter carnival in the world – will once again offer a wide variety of activities in Quebec City, including night parades, snow slides, shows, a snow bath, snow sculptures, sleigh rides and skating.
