About us

A first-ever 100% virtual home show!


The uncertainty that hangs over the duration, extent and impacts of the coronavirus pandemic is forcing District Habitat to postpone its first home show, initially scheduled for October 2020 at the Bell Complex in Brossard.

We are well aware that the disappointment will be deep for businesses that normally rely on home events to generate a good proportion of their annual sales.

We are talking about the exhibitors, of course, but also about all the individuals who have invested in ensuring that this FIRST show is held for more than a year and a half: employees, partners, suppliers, etc., but …

However, we told you that at DISTRICT HABITAT we would do things differently so we want to and we will keep our promise.

The APCHQ – région du Montréal métropolitain, producer of the District Habitat Trade Shows, and our team are working on an alternative activity in order to fulfill our mission from the fall of 2020. A 100% virtual home event that will allow, in the comfort of home, both for exhibitors and the consumers to enjoy it.

This home event is an educational, professional, unifying, accessible, specialized and completely innovative with a rich program of content. Webinars, conferences, interviews, contests and more will be planned to allow meetings between exhibitors and consumers and thus stimulate the economic activities of local businesses, not only during a pandemic period, but also each month preceding our future face-to-face show.


A whole month during autumn 2020, devoted solely to the field of construction, renovation and fitting-out so that exhibitors feel well surrounded by their industry and that owners and future home owners can get 100% out of their visit. informed and equipped to live or reside in a place that meets their needs.
