Located in down Montreal next to Chinatown, this venue is easily accessible by bus, subway, and highway. I come here every year for comiccon, and this is easily the best spot they could have chosen.

Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today
the Quartier International is like a transversal piece
of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most
