MUTEK is Finalist for Prestigious Prize
Winner of 2009 Grand Prix du tourisme Québécois will be announced on March 24
March 10, 2009
On February 5th, MUTEK was very pleased to learn that our Montreal festival had made the annual list of regional finalists for the 2009 Grand Prix du tourisme Québécois in the “Festival and Touristic Event: Budget under $1M” category.
This prestigious prize is recognition of excellence in attracting tourism to the greater region of Montreal. Certainly international tourism has been a cornerstone of the MUTEK organization since the very beginning, and last year’s 9th edition surpassed even our expectations by attracting a full 54% of its audience from outside the city.
The winner of the regional prize will be announced on Tuesday, March 24th, and will then move on to represent Montreal in the provincial competition, to be held in May.
