Kick off WITS '18 in style at the incredible Québec City Armoury, Manège Militaire!

This National Historic Site, constructed in 1885 and recently refurbished after a 2008 fire, was originally built as a a Gothic Revival drill hall for the infantry regiment, Les Voltigeurs de Québec. Home to incredible artifacts from this period of French Canadian History, the Armoury serves a uniquely Québecois event venue.

Be prepared to mingle with the attendees, savor local delicacies, discover Québec's country and international side, and dance the night away with new friends – all while discovering Québec City’s culture and people.

TRANSPORTATION: The Québec City Armoury is just a 15-minute walk from the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, but we will have a continuous shuttle running between the party and the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac through the evening. The first shuttle will be at the Fairmont at 6:30pm for a 6:45pm departure. The last shuttle will leave the Manège Militaire at 10:30pm.

ENTRY: Your WITS '18 badge is your official ticket to the Opening Party. You may pick up your badge during registration on Friday between 9:30am and 6:30pm at the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac (in the Verchéres room, at the top of the grand staircase off the lobby).

NOTE: If you cannot make registration, you may pick up your badge directly at the Opening Party.
