You should plan to arrive in time for the Opening Ceremonies which will give you a taste of Montréal’s and Canada’s culture and heritage. Following official speeches, circus performances and award ceremonies, Stephen Lewis, former UN-Ambassador for HIV/AIDS in Africa, will give a lecture on the parallels that can be drawn between the challenges of addressing HIV/AIDS and HPV in developing countries.
Delegates will have a chance to meet with colleagues and exhibitor representatives as we inaugurate the conference exhibit with a welcome reception where light refreshments and appetizers will be served. We invite you to enjoy one of the many restaurants around the convention centre as well as the outdoor jazz performances after the official opening.
