84th International Atlantic Economic Conference, Montréal, Canada, 5-8 October 2017

The 84th International Atlantic Economic Conference will be held in Montréal, Canada, in the Autumn of 2017. Montréal is Canada’s second largest city and may be the second-largest French-speaking metropolis on the planet, after Paris. The city is also considered the cultural capital of Canada and a cosmopolitan celebration of Québécois style, eloquently blending old-world European and contemporary styles. It’s this type of seamless unity we wish to embody as an international organization. The mission of the conference is to create a platform where economists and financial experts from academe, government, and the private sector can present their research results, exchange ideas and network in a collegial environment. Meetings also provide opportunities for participants to renew acquaintances and to forge new ones. That is why we are hoping to bring together distinguished delegates from around the world to present, discuss, and exchange valuable information in the fields of economics, business and finance. We invite you to take part in this opportunity to gain international insight and perspective in the captivating city of Montréal. The conference also helps attendees stay up to date on research associated with their fields. This experience allows participants the chance to renew connections or discover new colleagues for possible future collaborations. Montréal, Canada is a city rich with history and culture and we invite you to join us 5-8 October 2017. Montréal, c’est si bon!

The conference headquarters and all conference sessions in Montréal will be held at the Hotel Bonaventure.
