Over the years, the IDIGH program has organized dozens of events ranging from a simple research seminar to large symposium events attracting 200 people at the RI-MUHC. We can help you plan your event at the RI-MUHC in several ways:

  1. Advice on planning your event.
  2. Loan of our equipment.
  3. Use of our event management tools.

Advice on the planning of your event

It is important to plan your event several months in advance (6 to 12 months). The RI-MUHC community is very active and a very large number of events take place each year. For this reason, you must plan ahead to ensure that you can reserve the conference rooms, the amphitheater and the atrium. Here's how we can help:

  • Procedure to reserve the atrium in block E.
  • Procedure to reserve the amphitheater in block E with technical services.
  • Procedure to reserve a conference room.
  • Policy on reimbursements.
  • Procedure to obtain an alcohol permit. (Mandatory to consume alcohol).
  • Suggestions for catering services.
