Planning Essentials

Get a good night's rest

Visitors of the luxurious Fairmont le Manoir Richelieu are treated to views of the Saint Lawrence River, and stay in a choice of well-appointed guestrooms or suites fitting the world-renowned Fairmont hotel brand. Paths lead through beautiful landscaping, and an underground walkway connects to the neighbouring casino.

Stretch your budget in Canada

It’s a fact. Event dollars go further in Canada. With the Canadian dollar hovering between 25 and 30% below the U.S. dollar, planners are encouraged to enhance their meeting experience here. Dollars saved on the program requirements can translate into more bells and whistles or your bottom line, you pick.
