MUTEK Honored with Regional Prize for Tourism
March 23, 2009
In light of its upcoming tenth anniversary, MUTEK is particularly pleased to announce that Tourism Montreal has just designated the festival its regional winner of the Québec Tourism Awards (Grands Prix du Tourisme québécois) in the category of “Festivals and Tourism Events – operating budget of less than $1M”.
MUTEK now moves on to the next stage of the competition, the province-wide Québec Tourism Awards, where winners will be named on May 15th. Since its beginnings in 2000, MUTEK has consistently raised the profile of its home city amongst its ever-growing audiences, with a full 54% majority of its attendees flocking from outside Montreal to the festival’s five days for its last edition.
