For 2015, the Blue Metropolis Montreal International Literary Festival takes place from April 20 to 26, 2015.
We already have a number of authors confirmed and a few exciting projects in the works.
In the meantime, thanks to everyone for making 2014 a raging success. The 16th edition of Blue Met involved 233 events in 9 languages with the participation of over 100 authors from 15 countries. For Blue Met produced and co-produced events, as well as events produced by our partners, we maxed out at 32,000 visits for Festival-related events. Wow!
More importantly, we increased the attendance of hotel-based events by a whopping 35%!
Those are great numbers, people!
What I always say, though, is that we can never really rest too comfortably as the pressure is on to top 2014 by an even more successful 2015.
