Meet in Montreal

As the second most-populous city in Canada and largest in Québec, Montréal has the highest number of restaurants per capita which makes for an incredible location for corporate events. With its historic architecture and laid-back atmosphere, it’s no wonder this metropolis on the Saint Lawrence River ranks as the number one host city for international events in North America. Among Montréal’s claims to prominence are as the birthplace of the world-famous Cirque de Soleil, host city of the 1976 Olympic Games, and home to Expo ’67, often cited as one of the best World Exhibitions of the 20th century. We’ve been proud to call Montréal our hometown since Planned’s founding in 2017. Take it from us that the city of “Concordia Salus” (salvation through harmony) and its venues will surpass your guests’ expectations. Golf Exécutif Montréal This venue has taken traditional respects of a golf club and modernized it. With a number of facilities like a 9-hole golf course, practice grounds, driving range and golf simulators, this venue delivers an exceptional experience for those that appreciate refinement and class, which can be used for many kinds of activities and events, both during and outside the golf season. Au Sommet Place Ville-Marie and Restaurant Les Enfants Terribles Reflecting current architectural trends, you will enjoy breathtaking views of Montreal from this fully glazed venue. Gypsy Kitchen and Bar With its Californian design, this venue invites you to stop your trip in a cozy yet soothing ambiance. A perfectly balanced mix of wood and concrete blends with plants and natural textiles in order to create a comfortable space. It’s a paradise for digital nomads and for local and eco-friendly food lovers. Bord’Elle Imagine entering a venue that has three distinct spaces inspired by the 1920s that will make you feel as if you have traveled back to a time of great prestige. Every space was carefully designed to bring an air of exclusivity and a definitive sense of sophistication. Enjoying the beautiful venues in Montreal is easy when you use our marketplace to discover all that they have to offer, from amenities like sound systems, furniture, display screens, and natural light, and facilities like loading docks, storage space, and wheelchair accessibility.
