MTL à Paris week is a Tourisme Montréal and Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montréal (BTMM) initiative, in collaboration with Montréal International, being held from March 6 to 10, 2016. This year’s MTL à Paris week spotlights the creative and gourmet side of the agri-food industry. The sizeable trade mission will include a team of Montrealers from a variety of sectors (information technology, culture, creative industries, tourism, start-ups, economy), looking to build or strengthen their professional network with French businesses by tapping into personalized networking opportunities.
MONTRÉAL, A GOURMET AND CREATIVE CITY
This year, and for the first time since it was launched, the OMNIVORE Food Festival is celebrating a city: Montréal. Over the three-day festival, Montréal’s culinary heavyweights will be sharing their know-how with an audience of insiders. Creative and talented young local chefs such as Charles Antoine Crête and Patrice Demers will be on hand for this 11th OMNIVORE Food Festival.
The Tablée des Chefs is an original Montréal concept that has existed in Canada for 14 years. Since 2013, Vincent Brassart and Lyndsi Baker, in collaboration with the association’s sponsors, Elior and Calixir (Traiteurs de France members), have been working relentlessly to carry on the mission of La Tablée des Chefs in France. The aim of the evening is to raise funds to feed people in need and teach French youth about food and cooking.
LUNCHEON CONFERENCE AND NETWORKING AFTERNOON
A luncheon conference organized in partnership with law firm Lavery will be held at the Chambre de Commerce et de l’Industrie Paris Ile-de-France and hosted by Pierre Marc Johnson, former Premier of Québec and counsel at Lavery. The topic of the conference will be the Canada-EU trade agreement (CETA).
