Québec City to Host Environment Tech Conference

Environmental Technology and Regulation Conference to be Hosted in Québec City

The U.S. Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) has chosen Québec City to host its 112th Annual Conference & Exhibition (ACE2019). ACE2019 is the top North American forum for information-sharing, networking, and business development in the environmental, air, and waste-management industries. The conference is being organized in collaboration with the A&WMA’s Québec chapter, the Association pour la prévention de la contamination de l’air et du sol (APCAS) to bring together 1,500 scientists, regulators, suppliers and educators to advance environmental sciences from June 22 to 27, 2019, at the Québec City Convention Centre.

Nicolas Turgeon, Deputy Director for the CRIQ’s Industrial Efficiency and Environment Department, an expert in the control of air emissions and climate change, and event ambassador for Québec City’s Ambassadors’ Club, spearheaded the project to attract the event to Québec City.

“Our annual conference promises to feature ground-breaking plenaries, technical sessions and workshops that are all focused on creating the winds of change the Earth needs to save the environment and improve the health of citizens everywhere.”

Canada is an international leader in providing clean energy, R&D and climate solutions, and in demonstrating and adopting clean technologies, making it a natural choice to host this esteemed event, the first time it’s been held in Québec City.

“Québec City’s bid was met with a lot of enthusiasm from all members,” says Turgeon. “Everyone was enchanted by the city’s charm. ACE 2019 will be an exclusive opportunity for US and Canadian delegates to learn more about French culture—all while giving European and Asian attendees a taste of a very unique North American destination.”
