Things To Do in Montreal

Montreal is an easy city to navigate and has a wide variety of smart transportation options available. The venue and hotel are conveniently located to make the conference easily accessible for all attendees.

We urge you to stay a few extra days to explore this happening part of the country. We have provided some insight and discount codes below for exciting adventures, Montreal landmarks and restaurant options during your stay.

Recommended activities will be posted in the coming weeks.

GFTC 2016 was a huge success, largely due to the amazing speakers who presented. Each year, our keynote speakers, panelists and master class presenters address the critical areas within the rapidly expanding and evolving Food Tourism industry.

We are excited to share more information about the presenters and topics for 2017. There will be several programming sessions occurring simultaneously, it is recommended to bring several company representatives in order to "divide and conquer" all educational components of the conference.
