This is the second in a series of posts highlighting the best of Montreal, location of the upcoming TEC Vendor Challenge – ERP for Distribution.

Today we are zooming in on Downtown, Montreal’s throbbing heart. Several Canadian universities have their campuses there, which helps keeps this city energetic.

You can access downtown via an underground passageway from the Delta Hotel. A network of such passageways has developed over the years in response to the harsh Canadian winters, resulting in a virtual underground city. Tunnels connect buildings all over downtown, including shopping malls, restaurants, offices, businesses, museums, universities, access to metro stations, train stations, and bus stations. It’s a second Montreal!

Make sure to get out and see some of the hot spots, such as the Quartier des spectacles, Crescent Street, and The Village.
