The Nordheimer Conference Center is rich in history and was rebuilt after being ravaged by fire in 1886.  This neo-Victorian building was inaugurated in 1888 by the Nordheimer brothers, well-known businessmen who owned the piano factory of the same name, the A. & S.

Gala Dinner
Friday, 13 October
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Ruelle des Fortifications (InterContinental Montreal)

Included in the registration fee.

The Gala Dinner will take place in the Ruelle des Fortifications, which is part of the World Trade Centre Montreal and is located directly outside the InterContinental Montreal. Completed in 1992, it is an example of a 'horizontal skyscraper' and a leading example of urban renewal, architectural preservation and rehabilitation.The complex united several smaller Victorian-era commercial buildings by encasing them in a larger form, in this case a massive glassed-in atrium running the length of what was once Fortification Lane, itself the site of the city's colonial defensive walls. In a kind of post-modern hommage, a remnant of the Berlin Wall, given to the city in 1992, is on public exhibit within the complex. The complex includes other historic elements, such as a fountain by French architect and sculptor Dieudonné-Barthélemy Guibal also donated to the city in 1992
