Lune Rouge to be official presenter of HUB Montréal
Montreal, November 7, 2017 — Lune Rouge will be acting as official presenter of HUB Montréal. The first edition of this major international gathering of the creative industries is set to take place from November 8 to November 18, 2017, as part of Montreal’s 375th official programming. The partnership between these two budding organizations dedicated to the development and promotion of Montreal’s digital creativity was organic and will allow both entities to continue helping local talent shine on an international level.
“Lune Rouge and HUB Montréal share a common vision when it comes to developing Montreal’s innovative centre. The Lune Rouge Creative Hub project, which is slated to be launched within the next few months, as well as this partnership, are both stepping stones towards supporting and encouraging the abundance of talent our city has to offer,” explains Nadine Gelly, Executive Director of Lune Rouge Creative Hub.
“HUB Montréal will bring together talented entrepreneurs and creative minds dedicated to helping our local success stories shine internationally. This philosophy fits perfectly with the mission and values we have here at Lune Rouge,” adds Alexandre Amancio, Chief Creative Officer at Lune Rouge.
“In 2012, during the Grand Rendez-Vous Montréal Métropole Culturelle that took place at TOHU, when I was announcing for the very first time my intention to create HUB Montréal, I never would have imagined that the Lune Rouge Creative Hub project would be launched the very same year as HUB Montréal. No doubt the universe was already hard at work, making sure this partnership would one day come to be. Not only is it an honour, but it’s an extraordinary opportunity, for us to partner with Lune Rouge and work towards fostering Montreal’s international outreach.” Sébastien Nasra, Innovator, HUB Montréal and Founder and President, Avalanche Prod.
