Le Westin Montreal‘s extraordinary 16,000 square foot open concept exhibition hall is the newest addition to the hotel’s expansive 40,000 square feet of windowed meeting space.
Offering stunning skyline views, the new space is made up of a 8,700 square foot Grande Place along with seven adjoining breakout rooms (ranging from 550 to 1300 square feet each). When combined they create an extraordinary 16,000 square foot open concept exhibition hall that can accommodate up to 83 8’x10′ trade show booths. The impressive new Montreal event space proudly boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and can easily be transformed from the site of a modern symposium to a chic wedding.
Located in Old Montreal, directly across from the Le Palais des Congres, Le Westin is the only hotel in Montreal featuring ballrooms filled with natural light from 20-foot high floor-to-ceiling windows opening onto a 2,600 square foot open-air terrace overlooking the historic city. Le Westin Montreal’s unique event spaces can accommodate groups of up to 800 people with the ability to comfortably meet and feed more than 500 guests.
“We are thrilled that the hotel has just been chosen as the official hotel of Montreal Fashion week,” said Philippe Gadbois, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Atlific Hotels. “With an open concept exhibition hall and ninth floor terrace that are quite unlike other hotel venues in Montreal, it is easy to see why we are becoming the preferred Montreal meeting facility of meeting and event planners.”
“Le Westin Montreal provides guests with the most comprehensive, and truly unique meeting and events experience in Montreal,” said Mylene Gagnon, Director of Sales and Marketing, Le Westin Montreal. “We have literally taken Montreal meeting space to a new level – out from the basement and onto the top floors. Not only do we offer event planners the latest technology and innovative menus, we offer out-of-town delegates views of the most beautiful and welcoming aspects of Montreal.”
Le Westin has designed all its adaptable meeting space to accommodate the various needs of today’s meeting and event planners; three dedicated high-speed elevators and designated banquet kitchens service each ballroom. Le Westin’s 39 meeting rooms are equipped for high speed Internet access, digital way-finding, and feature extensive VPN capabilities, allowing secure, instant access to e-mail and corporate networks.
