Showcase services and innovative products by meeting with print editors and general managers, web designers, bloggers and communications directors who are looking for opportunities to improve their work.
Québec City is over 400 years old and the only walled city north of Mexico. Its streets are cobblestone and full of old-world charm, its basilica-cathedral is over 350 years old; you'll think you are in Europe. Yes, it is a French speaking country but you will not have a language problem because the majority of people at the university and in many of the shops speak fluent English.
The purpose of meeting in Québec City is to give attendees the opportunity to see a beautiful UNESCO city and build relationships with Catholic communicators from around the world.
The main body of the conference is taking place at Laval University where both SIGNIS and the CPA will hold their own meetings. Wednesday, the closing day for SIGNIS attendees, will be a day of sharing. Joint meetings will be held throughout the day to discuss challenges and successes, share stories of hope with our colleagues and to foster new relationships.
