This fall, the Palais des congrès will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its glass façade, which was unveiled when the Palais expanded in 2002.

The Hal Ingberg creation was conceived as part of the 2002 expansion of the Palais’ facilities. Its development was overseen by three architectural firms: Tétreault Parent Languedoc et associés; Saia Barbese Topouzanov, architectes; and Ædifica.

To highlight this colourful structure’s 20th anniversary, the Palais has launched a photography contest, open to the public, running until September 30, 2022.

Both professional and amateur photographers are invited to submit a photograph of the façade via an online form on the Palais’ website. Two prizes will be awarded at the close of the contest, including one that will give the winner the privilege of having their photo exhibited during the Palais’ 40th anniversary celebrations in the spring of 2023.
