Fairmont Chateau Frontenac, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada



Staying Relevant in an Ever-Changing World

“Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.” - Stephen Hawking

As a dynamic network of thinkers and communicators, we constantly thirst for exploration. We are always seeking to discover new things--fresh ideas to learn, share, and talk about. It is through this mindset that we are able to influence and adapt to the changing industries we work with.

In line with the organization’s commitment to growth, the delegates will be exploring the spheres of storytelling, education, online communities, healthcare, and film.


Venue Overview

The Fairmont Le Château Frontenac is the crowning jewel of Québec. A renowned UNESCO World Heritage site, the hotel is just a few steps away from the lively downtown.
