Café Liégeois is very excited to announce its presence at the 8th edition of the Chromatic Festival, which will be taking place from May 24th through June 1st in Montréal. Over 20 000 people are expected to attend this celebration of the city’s creative art scene.
What is the Chromatic Festival?
Founded in 2009 by MASSIVart, Chromatic distinguishes itself by its mission of creating cultural experiences. The goal of the Festival is to celebrate art in its multiple forms : visual, sound and digital.
All year round, this dedicated team of eleven deploys a vast range of events aimed at discovering new artistic practices from local and international talents.
For this edition, the Festival will take place at two unique locations in Montreal : the Arsenal and the Éloi Studio. Throughout this multidisciplinary programme (Chromatic Expo, Chromatic Pro, Chromatic Kids and la Nuit Chromatic), we will discover over fifty talented exhibitors from Québec that will blend into an experience filled with creativity and artistic innovation.
Our Collaboration With Chromatic
For the first time, Café Liégeois will be present to offer its quality coffee at the Chromatic Festival, and more specifically during the Chromatic Kids programme, which will be taking place on May 28th at the Éloi Studio. Throughout the day, Café Liégeois will be alongside the participants and organizers to accompany them on their coffee breaks with our americano : a well balanced coffee with just a touch of bitterness.
Café Liégeois is proud to be among the dozens of service partners, such as Loto Québec, Ubisoft, Tourisme Montréal, Eska and Lolë. who will also be at Chromatic Kids.
Café Liégeois is pleased to be attending the Europe Day celebration, which will take place on May 9th at the European Union Residence in Ottawa, Ontario. More commonly known as the Schuman Declaration, Europe Day is a symbolic date that marks the birth of the European Union.
Why Europe Day?
It all began on May 9th, 1950, when French foreign minister Robert Schuman proposed an establishment of a European Coal and Steal Community (ECSC) between the French and the West Germans. This Community was the first of its kind in Europe, and has become a pivotal moment in the establishment of the European Union. Today, the founding members of this Community (France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxumbourg) make up the European Union.
To celebrate this day, European Union delegations around the world organize conferences, competitions, film festivals and other events.
A new collaboration
We are looking forward to offering our 100% compatible Nespresso® capsules and a selection of our European roasts to the 500 diplomats and business leaders that are expected to attend this celebration in Ottawa. Café Liégeois is proud to be a partner for this event alongside Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo and les Relations internationales et Francophonies du Québec.
The two associates Camille Dodd and Jean-Nicholas Papillon visited the headquarter in Belgium, based in Battice, in the province of Liège.
Café Liégeois Canada & Belgium :
This business trip was the perfect opportunity to create new ties with Michel Liégeois, the current head of the company in Belgium. The North-American market associates therefore had the opportunity to visit the production factories and were able to note that the team at the headquarters is doing excellent work.
Coffee innovations in perspective:
The most recent innovations through of and worked on by Café Liégeois were presented by Camille Dodd and Jean-Nicholas Papillon. The two associates also had the opportunity to present to the Belgium directory, concerning your feelings and comments on the beans and the Nespresso® compatible products, in order for the headquarter to better adapt to your needs.
