It brings together 150 influential and dedicated ambassadors who have organized a conference or have a viable project underway.

Our Mission

Drive business tourism and facilitate North American and international conferences in Québec City.

Our Partners

Québec City’s Ambassadors’ Club was founded in 1995 by the Québec City Convention Centre, Destination Québec Cité, and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Québec International and Québec City Jean Lesage International Airport later joined as partners. The initiative is the responsibility of Québec City Business Destination, the city’s official convention bureau.

Who Are the Ambassadors?

This select group includes professors and researchers from various university departments, faculties, and affiliated research centres as well as business people, business executives, and organizations in every sector. In addition to their professional activities, our ambassadors draw upon their networks of contacts to convince decision-makers and their organizations to choose Québec City for their conference.
