MONTRÉAL, May 26, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - C2 and RBC Royal Bank are proud to announce a new partnership for the 2018-2020 editions of C2 Montréal. As part of the agreement, RBC will be recognized as a "Connection Partner" and will benefit from the same level of visibility as the founding partners of C2, Sid Lee and Cirque du Soleil.
The main goal of the partnership is to enrich the experience of conference participants through inspiring activities like seminars with recognized experts, workshops, and masterclasses that will share the expertise of the RBC ecosystem. Collaborative experiences will also allow participants to forge links and build partnerships that will drive their businesses forward.
"This is an important moment in C2's history as we embark on a major partnership with RBC for the next three years," says Chloe Langevin, Vice President of Partnerships at C2 Montréal. "To us, RBC is synonymous with innovation and provides an international scope for C2's flagship conference. With our perspective on future technologies and C2's promise of networking and connections, Montreal will reach new heights."
As a C2 Montréal partner, RBC will have the opportunity to interact with more than 6,000 participants, who represent over 25 industries and play various roles within their respective organizations. This position within the C2 Montréal ecosystem is an exciting opportunity for RBC business units.
Finally, RBC will benefit from a one-of-a-kind environment for hosting current and potential clients, with programming and networking activities that will inspire them and help them establish new and exciting business relationships.
This partnership makes perfect sense as RBC is building a digitally-enabled relationship bank that reflects the expectations and preferences of its clients. RBC is getting the most out of technology in order to provide an exceptional client experience and thereby create the bank of the future.
"RBC is proud to be associated with C2 Montréal," says Martin Thibodeau, President of RBC's Quebec Headquarters. "To us, C2 Montréal is a crossroads for creativity, innovation and marketing, where both the present and the future combine with very inspiring content and technologies, not to mention guest speakers of international calibre."
C2 is a unifying and connecting force with a mission to transform leaders and organizations that are ready for change－whether they're aware of it or not. In a collaborative context specifically designed to provoke interaction and generate new ideas, C2 helps decision-makers question their assumptions in order to find innovative solutions to business problems. C2 first reinvented the international business conference with C2 Montréal, an annual event that "defies conventions," according to The Economist, and which the Harvard Business Review described as a "conference like no other." After Zurich, Milan, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Rome and San Francisco, C2 is now extending its scope to all continents.
