C2- MTL 2012 / Congress on creativity ...
What impressed most at the conference C2-MTL presented in Montreal from May 22 to 25, 2012 was the number of prestigious sponsors. More than 40 major companies showed the title sponsor of the event. Then there was the price of the conference between $ 2.800 and $ 1.500$. Finally, there was of course the name of Frank Coppola on the list of speakers ...
The event brought together about 1000 participants and the theme was "creativity".
Personally, I enjoyed the scenery and the robot spider but I have not been impressed by the lectures and I have not learned how to be more creative. The event reminded me of the first conference of Bill Clinton presented in Montreal a few years ago when it was the fury of the time in Montreal. In 2012, the fury of the time it is the student protests... Moreover, some visitors to the C2-MTL promised to attend as an observer at the students protests to see a little bit the feeling of the demonstration.
It should be noted that Quebec will host in the coming weeks many major events including the most prestigious F1 Grand Prix and the Global Forum on the French language in Quebec from July 2 to 6. C2-MTL has been a sort of introduction, opening cocktail kind.
