    MONTREAL, June 7 /CNW Telbec/ - From June 24 to 29, Montréal will be host
city of the 17th Scientific Meeting of the IBMS (International Bone and
Mineral Society), which will be held at the Palais des congrès. More than
1,500 delegates and 60 exhibitors will be in Montréal for the occasion to take
part in six days of workshops, conferences and plenary sessions designed to
enhance knowledge of bone and mineralized tissue as well as treatment of
metabolic bone diseases.
    "We are extremely proud that the IBMS has chosen Montréal for its annual
meeting," says Charles Lapointe, President and CEO of Tourisme Montréal. "The
fact that scientists from around the world will be meeting in our city not
only confirms its standing as a leading destination for international
conventions, but this event is very significant for us since the life sciences
represent one of Montréal's key industries. In addition, the economic
spin-offs generated by these six days of meetings are expected to reach close
to $3 million dollars for the entire Montréal tourism industry," concludes Mr.
Lapointe.

    The IBMS is an international organization whose mission is to provide its
members, comprised of some 2,500 researchers and clinicians from more than 64
countries, with the communication and training tools required for their
profession. The organization also develops teaching and research programs to
promote the understanding of and treatment options for metabolic bone
disorders.
