Economic Mission to Montreal

Economic Mission to Montreal

From 6 to 9 November 2019 we are bringing together professionals from the audiovisual world for a trade mission in Montreal. In collaboration with AWEX, Wallimage and TWIST, the programme is part of an effort to increase Wallonia-Brussels visibility, organised by WBI and the Phi Centre.

Montreal’s dynamic culture scene makes it a premier destination for promoting your work. The city is home to a large collection of studios, theatres, a virtual experimentation centre and other cultural and artistic hubs. It is an opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the innovative and commercial culture of the bustling metropolis.

Our visit to Montreal forms part of an initiative to raise Wallonia-Brussels awareness, organised by the WBI in collaboration with the Phi Centre.

A cultural programme will be organised with the support of WBImages, WBMusiques and WBTheatre/Danse.

The opportunity to promote your products and services internationally in Montreal will prove to be a real asset for your business. You can count on the support of our economic and commercial Attaché and his team, who will organise networking events, bespoke B2B meetings and company visits. During your visit we will also create a cultural itinerary with the support of WBImages, WBMusiques and WBTheatre/Danse.
