Torontonians are invited to the party
TORONTO, May 28 /CNW/ - The annual reception of the Bureau du Québec à
Toronto will have something new to offer in 2009 with Soirée Québec, a
magnificent party free to the public, who are invited to join in on the
festivities next June 23rd.
This year the event will take place in a new, more spacious venue: the
prestigious Winter Garden Theatre, in downtown Toronto. Three other notable
improvements will give the Québec reception a new look:
- An original visual signature reflecting the event's festive nature.
- The inclusion of the general public in the invitation, which will
double the number of participants to 1,000 guests. Another new
addition to Soirée Québec: a recital given by exceptionally talented
young Québec artists, open to the general public. Le Bureau du Québec
à Toronto is thrilled to be partnering once again with Jeunesses
Musicales du Canada for this concert which is not to be missed! In
addition, four fantastic door prizes will be given away, courtesy of
Porter Airlines and the Québec City Tourism Office.
- A Québec showcase featuring twenty exhibitors and partners, who will
mingle with the public and share their know-how. The public will have
the opportunity to sample fine food provided by leading companies.
Torontonians will also have the chance to discover many of Québec's
key players in the manufacturing and service industries. Most of
these businesses and groups are well established in Toronto.
"New venue! Original signature! General public! Québec showcase! This is
the new look of the Québec reception, which from now on will be known as
Soirée Québec," emphasized Mr. Paul-Arthur Huot, Chief Representative of the
Bureau du Québec à Toronto.
Torontonians can sign up for the free event by registering online, at
Le Bureau du Québec would like to thank its many partners whose generous
financial support has helped make Soirée Québec a reality. The complete list
of partners is included in the press kit.
