Book your hotel for Montreal - November 23

CPMA has negotiated convention rates at area hotels within walking distance of the Palais des congrès de Montréal. These hotels will be announced and begin accepting your reservations for our 2022 event on Tuesday, November 23, at 1:00 pm EST.

Information will be posted on the Hotel Information page of our convention website at that time. 

Always book your reservations directly with the hotel using the information provided on the CPMA website. CPMA does not use housing bureaus, and any call or email you receive from another organization is not authorized, and we cannot guarantee the legitimacy of their claims.

Exhibitor resources

The Exhibitor Services Manual will be distributed to all exhibitors in early January. You will receive the link directly from GES as soon as the manual goes live. This manual will include the information you need to plan your show, such as GES services and booth rentals, shipping and material handling information, convention centre services and utilities, order forms, and specialty contractors. 

The Exhibitor resources page will be your destination for show information, or reach out to me at for any logistics questions. Keep your eye on the CPMA convention website for more information about the event as it becomes available.
