The Palais des congrès de Montréal is introducing the CITE Event Innovation and Technology Centre. This new initiative aims to enable organisers of events of all types and sizes to reinvent the level of experience they can offer participants thanks to the expertise of numerous local startups. "CITE is akin to an innovation clinic, where our customers can find creative solutions for their needs", explains Robert Mercure, President and CEO of the Palais des congrès de Montréal, adding that "today's participants don't just want to attend an event, they want to experience it, and CITE will enable us to help our customers make that happen by pairing them with creative entrepreneurs that elevate our city and will elevate their events." CITE will deliver affordable solutions that are also in line with the organisers' current and future needs. There are presently a dozen firms that have joined or are in the process of joining the centre, and their services range from technology and food, to the arts and event logistics, all provided jointly with the Palais' official providers: Freeman Audio Visual, GES Canada and Capital Catering. CITE will eventually house over 20 exciting firms offering innovative experiences.
