Montréal wins top spot in the new edition of Monopoly!
Montréal, August 20, 2008 - The Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal is delighted Montréal has won the prestigious Boardwalk square in the new international version of Monopoly Here and Now: The World Edition.
Last winter, the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal encouraged its members to vote to ensure Montréal would win first place among all the cities competing for this honour. The initiative created a lot of buzz, and several social networks played along. We were pleasantly surprised to see how many people took advantage of this fun opportunity to raise Montréal's profile on the world stage. The response to our invitation was extremely favourable! We want to thank everyone who got involved, playing full out to draw the eyes of the world to our metropolis. As of now, Montréal is officially the world's most coveted piece of real estate, where all players will compete to build their homes and hotels! concluded Isabelle Hudon, president and CEO of the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal.
