I see Gold badges are sold-out, what are my options at this point?
You can either buy individual tickets for shows and panels, or buy the panel package (see tickets section).
I can't attend all events, can I lend my badge to my colleague?
No, badges are non-transferable.
Where do I pick up my badge?
Badges will be available at SAT, in the basement, 1201 Boul. Saint-Laurent, Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 8pm and Saturday from 10am to 5pm.
If I have a Gold badge, do I have to attend all events? (dinners and cocktails)
It is strongly recommended. If you know you can't make it to a dinner or a cocktail or the speed schmoozing, please get in touch with Carola Duran, Project Manager-International relations at email@example.com as soon as possible as we have to deal with exact numbers.
Where do I get the schedule of activities?
Visit the schedule "Industry" section of our website or download the M for Montreal iPhone app.
How does the M Fest work?
Basically, Friday and Saturday nights run like a normal festival, where the public has purchased tickets and venues are subject to maximum capacities. Therefore, if there's a show you really want to see, we suggest you arrive early. No one is guaranteed entry if maximum capacity is reached, even Gold badges.
How does the speed schmoozing work?
There are 2 speed schmoozing sessions. Band representatives are required to be there for both sessions (Thursday and Friday).
International delegates: Session 1 (Thursday), delegates with LAST NAMES starting from A to J (inclusively) are required to be there, Session 2 (Friday), delegates with LAST NAMES starting from K to Z (inclusively) are required to be there.
*** Please note that international journalists and music supervisors are NOT required to be at the speed schmoozing.***
Band representatives: You are required to arrive ON TIME at 9h30am Thursday AND Friday, where you'll have to book appointments with the delegates you want to meet. Given the time limit, you will only meet 20 delegates out of the 40 on Thursday and the same on Friday, so please make sure you do your research beforehand. You can check out the "2012 Delegates" section under the "Industry" section on our website.
If I have a Gold badge, do I need any tickets for any shows or activities?
No, unless you are planning to attend the "Roundtable Workshop: Meet the Music Supervisors". With a Gold badge, it's 65$ + taxes. More information in the industry schedule section.
What’s the temperature like in Montreal in November?
Montreal is known for its unpredictable weather. Sometimes it rains and gets warm, then the temperature decreases, it turns to ice, then it snows and then you’re pretty much screwed. So you’re in for a ride! Hehe...just kidding, it's actually been pretty nice lately (15 degrees celcius). Make sure you bring:
- A warm jacket + a lighter jacket if it's not that cold;
- Scarf, tuque/beanie/knit hat, gloves (not sure you'll need these, but just in case);
- Comfortable shoes/small boots;
- Rain jacket and umbrella;
...stilettos are not recommended.
I have ongoing business back home. Will the hotels have wi-fi in the rooms and in the lobby spaces?
Hotel Zero 1 and Trylon Apartments have wi-fi in their lobby spaces and rooms, but there will be extra charges for high-speed Internet in the rooms.
Will there be a shuttle waiting for me at the airport?
Yes, M for Montreal hostesses will be waiting for you at the airport with an M for Montreal sign. If we didn’t book your flight, please make sure you sent us your flight schedule. For any questions regarding transportation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep in mind that M for Montreal only provides transportation from and to the airport on November 13, 14 and 18.
Do I need a VISA to enter the country?
Guests from Europe and the United States don’t need a VISA, but a valid passport. For guests coming from South America, Asia and Eastern Europe, you will most likely need one, plus you’ll need an invitation letter from M for Montreal. Make sure you check this out with the Canadian consulate in your country before traveling.
Do I need an adaptor?
Canadian voltage is 110-120 Volts (most other areas are 220-240 Volts), so yes! Bring one!
What do I do if my flight got delayed?
