Stimulate the pride of local consumerism and attract visitors by promoting unity and authenticity! Every city, every village, and every commercial artery needs to forge a distinctive personality to distinguish itself. Territorial marketing offers the solutions to overcome those challenges.

Online business, citizen mobility, social networks and big malls radically changed traditional business habits for city-center businesses and main commercial arteries. The development of the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve district in Montréal East is thus a distinctive story of success.

Unfolding the core strategies implemented in Hochelaga, speaker Jimmy Vigneux will put into the spotlight the key factors required to develop a winning policy of territorial marketing and citizen mobilization.
