MONTREAL, Dec. 3, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - On the first of December, the
Quebec Technology Association (AQT) relocated to 32 Soeurs-Grises
Street in Montréal Quebec (H3C 2P8).
New offices have been optimized to foster closer ties between our
members and provide a business centre, training facility, and
consulting space for stakeholders in the ICT industry. AQT's 10
staffers will share a semi-open office area conducive to brain-storming
and creative thinking.
"Since our lease was coming due, we decided to find an equivalent-sized
office space that would better reflect the growth and image of AQT
members, as well as our stature as a network that represents the most
dynamic SMEs and sets a benchmark for the Quebec ICT industry, stated
Nicole Martel, Chief Executive Officer of AQT. In addition, being in
the heart of Multimedia City and visible to passersby and visitors,
this new location is more readily accessible and enhances the
visibility of the AQT and its members."
A venue to implement the AQT Board of Directors' new triennial plan:
Growing the industry's reach and representation on the strength of our network, in our capacity as industry
spokesperson to various bodies, and through the publication of industry

members with activities and services in conjunction with willing
partners and sponsors.

move. Unlike AQT Peer-to-Peer groups that connect members based on their functions, Specific Interest
Groups are designed to empower ICT CEOs and executives by providing
relevant information based on their specific areas of interests,
markets, and business practices. Beginning this coming January, groups
comprised of no more than 15 people will be able to take part in "round
table" events from 11:30 a.m to 2 p.m. to discuss strategies and best

Cloud Computing will enhance AQT operations. Thanks to help from its members, AQT has acquired robust technological
infrastructures which are essential to the overall effectiveness of the

addition, thanks to a new and fully Web-accessible database implemented
this past fall, an enhanced system has been put into place to allow
members to update their own data.
Technological platform designed to promote business partnerships. A new Web site will be rolled out as early as January; designed by K3
Media, the new site is more in tune with the image of AQT members. In
addition, it will be possible by this spring to search our extensive
database for partnership opportunities thanks to a brand new
