Cartel 2016 / Welcome Messages / A Message from: Ville de Montréal

Montréal is pleased to be associated with the 2nd edition of the New Music Cartel. International broadcasters attending this conference will soon realize why Montréal is recognized as an international hub for new music.

As a cultural metropolis, Montréal understands the importance and vitality of local creative talents, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their exceptional contribution to the reputation and development of our city.

I would like to thank Le Vivier for its involvement in the New Music Cartel and contribution to the success of Montréal on the international scene. Over the years, Le Vivier has become a gateway to culture.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all the participants in the New Music Cartel. I wish you a productive meeting and a pleasant stay in Montréal, where you will discover a warm, festive and inspiring city that stands out for its culture, history and fine cuisine.

Denis Coderre
Mayor of Montréal
