Montréal and its partners are set to host the Virtuoso Symposium, organized by the industry’s leading luxury travel network, from May 15 to 21, 2023. This event brings together more than 400 local and international delegates annually for four days to meet and discuss the sector, while discovering the host destination.
“Our destination is a natural choice thanks to its diversified offer of luxurious and authentic experiences, its rich cultural scene, its renowned gastronomy, its world-class facilities and its unique accommodation establishments. I would like to thank our partners for their collaboration and the Virtuoso network, since the coming of this event contributes to the enviable reputation of Montréal and to making it a luxurious world-class destination,” said Yves Lalumière, CEO, Tourisme Montréal.
The Virtuoso by-invitation-only network brings together more than 2,000 travel agencies, hotels, cruise lines, tour operators and other partners from more than 100 countries around the world. Its 22,000 elite advisors use their expertise and connections to create tailor-made trips for clients, including unique experiences, special values, complimentary perks, VIP treatment and rare access.

“Congratulations to Tourisme Montréal and the many partners who have worked together to successfully win the city’s bid to host the 2023 Virtuoso Symposium. Events like these provide a crucial opportunity to engage influential decision-makers of the luxury travel industry, which in turn helps us capture Canada’s full potential as a tourism destination through attracting high-value guests.
