There are many ways for you to get to Montreal in time for the event. Check out our Lodging and Travel page for hotel and travel suggestions, and even an Air Canada code for a 15% conference discount. You can also join one of our roadtrips and delegations leaving from Toronto, Vermont, Calgary and even France, to name a few! Check out the page here.
What should I wear at the event?
Keep it casual! It’s summer in Montreal, and temperatures and humidity soar in the summertime. Keep it casual; shorts, jeans, and T-shirts are the dress code at Startupfest. We do have large lounges with floors, but a good part of the venue is on grass, so we suggest you don’t wear heels! Expect it to be a bit cooler at night. Check out the forecast!
