Montréal's Quartier des spectacles receives prestigious award

MONTREAL, Nov. 16, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - The Quartier des spectacles was awarded one of four Phoenix Awards by the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW), for the spectacular makeover of a downtown Montréal area. The awards ceremony, which celebrated excellence in preserving the tourist experience, was held in Wellington, New Zealand, as part of the SATW annual convention.

"This award clearly reflects city efforts to revitalize and reclaim a major tourist pole of attraction. The Quartier des spectacles is a key area for cultural dissemination, as well as for holding major events in Montréal. This special recognition contributes to the visibility of Montréal as well as to its reputation as a prime cultural hub," said Helen Fotopulos, member of the Montréal Executive Committee responsible for culture, heritage, design and the status of women.

Introduced in 1969, the Phoenix Awards are given annually to individuals, communities or organizations in recognition of efforts to improve the tourist experience through preservation, beautification or environmental projects. With 80 cultural venues, the Quartier des spectacles sets the tone for other cities through unique and lively cultural offerings, as well as an enviable reputation that reaches far beyond our borders. Thanks to a type of development and layout that highlight Montréal's cultural wealth, the Quartier des spectacles has become a city icon that emphasizes its cultural mission. This recognition adds to a list of prizes and awards already received by the Quartier des spectacles.
