JCI QUÉBEC 2016 LAUNCHES INTERNATIONAL REGISTRATIONS AND ITS NEW WEBSITE
Québec City, November 12, 2015 – One year before holding the largest business event ever held in Québec City, the JCI Québec 2016 committee officially launches its new website jciquebec2016.com and gives the green light to the registration of some 4000 delegates expected from more than 125 countries.
With this new tool, the organisation will be able to communicate and promote the event beyond the borders of Québec, at national and international levels. “It is a very important step for us, one year from the Québec edition. It is very exciting!” said Jean-Simon Deschênes, Congress Director and Chief Executive Officer of JCI Québec 2016.
With the new website on line, registrations for international participants are now officially open, while registrations for Canadian participants have been open since last September.
