New Venue: Startupfest takes over industrial port-side haven

From a cruise ship terminal in 2011 to a private island surrounded by paddle boats and Cirque du Soleil in 2014 – our venues have been anything but predictable. And with a brand new round of speakers, innovative new startups, and an upgrade in experience – we managed to find an even better venue for Startupfest this summer.

Surrounded by water, with an amazing view of the Montreal skyline, Le Jardins des Écluses is the perfect home for 2015’s theme of Masters & Models. This venue offers more than just spectacular views, a cool breeze, and a true feel for Montreal’s historic city, it will also provide attendees with an unbeatable view of the 31st edition of Montreal’s International Firework Festival. (Don’t worry, the dress code hasn’t changed; shorts, flip-flops, and a cold beer in hand are highly recommended). For the majority of our attendees who are out-of-towners, find places to stay and hotels that offer special Festival rates HERE.
