English and French

There will always be at the same time a conference in English and one in French. All speakers are bilingual, so if you attend a French conference, you will be able to ask questions in English.

Gaming

The game room will be open during the whole event. It’s furnished with new games provided by the many editors in Quebec. The animations and presentations schedule will be published.

Gala

The gala dinner will be animated (English and French) by memory Master François Blondin. he will introduce you to different mnemonic techniques, like the memory palace used by the Ancient Greeks.

Sunday

The annual general meeting for Mensa Canada will be scheduled Sunday morning. The game room will still be open all day (an activity will be organized for younger Mensans). In the afternoon, we will take you on a tour of Old Montréal (10 minutes from the hotel). Should your kids get bored, Montréal Comiccon is happening a 20 minute walk from the hotel.

Come!

We hope you will come, and meet, network, and befriend Mensans in person in Montréal. Until then, we are hard at work to prepare an event that will make you forget these last years of virtual meetings.
