The Montréal Wine and Spirits Show 2004 

Step into a world of palate-pleasing discovery and delight

The 6th Montréal Montreal Wine and Spirits Show will be held from 22 to 25 April 2004 at Palais des congrès de Montréal. This grand public event, the largest of its kind in Canada, is presented by the Association québécoise des agences de vins, bières et spiritueux (AQAVBS) in collaboration with major partner, Société des alcools du Québec (SAQ).

An exceptional vintage
In an exhibition hall measuring close to 10,000 m² in area, the 2004 edition of the Montréal Wine and Spirits Show will welcome an imposing delegation of 250 producers, vintners and distillers of international renown from 30 producing nations worldwide.

For the first time, a record 1200 of the some 2500 products on offer will be private imports available exclusively at the Show. Visitors will relish the unique opportunity to discover, sample and purchase the products they fancy. They will also delight in making privileged contact with producers, attending free conferences and product samplings, taking part in any number of activities designed to enhance their knowledge of the fascinating world of wine and spirits, and familiarizing themselves with a host of essential tasting and storage accessories.

One of the leading events of its kind... on this side of the Atlantic
A rendez-vous par excellence for anyone with a penchant for discovery, the Montréal Wine and Spirits Show has become the most highly anticipated event of connoisseurs and recent initiates alike. The surging popularity of this event of international renown owes not only to its remarkable quality but also to its renewed public interest in wine and spirits.
