Skate Canada has been advised of a labor disruption at our host hotel for the Ice Summit, the Hilton Québec. To ensure all planned activities can take place as scheduled we have moved all functions to ExpoCité – Centre de Foires (250 Wilfrid-Hamel Blvd, Quebec City, QC, G1L 5A7).
Centre de Foires is a fantastic facility that is near to the Hilton Québec with ample space and services to accommodate all events (i.e.: meetings, Coaches’ Dinner, Welcome Reception, Friday workshops, AGM and Awards Banquet). All room bookings will remain at the Hilton Québec and all participants will be transported by bus to and from Centre de Foires at no additional charge. It will take approximately 15 minutes to travel from the hotel to Centre de Foires. The bus schedule will be available online and onsite closer to the event.
We look forward to seeing you in Quebec City!
