A truly unique look for your event

The Ruelle des Fortifications, the main walkway on the ground floor, is an important part of Montréal’s history. It’s open year-round for photo and painting exhibitions, promotional kiosks, television and film shoots, private receptions, wedding ceremonies and special events.

The stone walls are reminiscent of the fortifications that surrounded the city in the 18th century. Nearby farmers often came through the gates of the fortified city to sell their wares to the local townspeople. The walls were dismantled between 1804 and 1812.

Cocktails & Banquets

Throughout the year, the World Trade Centre Montréal hosts prestigious events, including weddings, cocktail parties, benefits, banquets and more.


The Ruelle des Fortifications can accommodate up to 800 cocktail reception guests and banquets with up to 350 people, offering you a wide choice of amenities to create the atmosphere you want.
