DATE : September 26th 2018


LOCATION : Complexe Capitale Hélicoptère (1688 Route de l’Aéroport, Québec, QC G2G 0K1)



The Salon informatique ProContact (SIP) event is a must in IT in Quebec, which is why it’s back for an 8th edition.

This year’s theme is “Growth Through Hybrid IT”. There is no doubt about it: IT investments in Quebec will explode in the coming years. The global context of innovation in the most promising sectors such as artificial intelligence, big data, the “as a service” economy, cloud services and industry 4.0, to name but a few, put a lot of pressure on companies who want to be the big winners.

Informatique ProContact invites information technology professionals to meet the 35 exhibitors who will be attending SIP 2018. During the show, you will also be able to attend 18 conferences and technical workshops that will certainly help you make informed choices for your company’s profitability, flexibility and sustainability.

Come and walk around the 6500 square feet show at the Complexe Capitale Hélicoptère to talk to your favorite manufacturers who will all be in one place for a day!

*Unless otherwise stated, the conferences are given in French
