Host City

Join your colleagues at CDA 2018 in the vibrant city of Montréal – internationally known for its joie de vivre. Fuelled by liberalism and open-mindedness in the 1920’s, Montréal was a thriving exciting town in the days of prohibition, with cabarets and vaudeville acts!  Now Montréal provides visitors with a harmonious pairing of the historic and the new, from exquisite architecture to fine dining.

For information and everything you need to know about planning a memorable Montréal vacation, take time to explore their extensive website and official visitor guide.
