Dr. Jean-Pierre Routy, local co-chair of AIDS 2022.

The International AIDS Society (IAS) announced that AIDS 2022, the 24th International AIDS Conference, will take place in Montreal from 29 July to 2 August 2022 with pre-conference meetings set to begin on 27 July 2022 at the Palais des congrès. AIDS 2022, the world's largest conference on HIV and AIDS, will convene leading scientists, policy makers and grassroots activists. Dr. Jean-Pierre Routy from the IDIGH program is the local co-chair of AIDS 2022, he played a decisive role in representing Montreal's expertise in the field of HIV research. 

Following COVID-19 vaccine discovery, we are closer than ever before to an effective HIV vaccine and even on a path towards a cure. Breakthroughs in testing and treatment have improved the global response. Communities most affected by HIV continue to push for greater inclusion and accountability. Montreal welcomes our colleagues and allies from all over the world at a truly exciting time for HIV research, policy and programmes. I am proud to have contributed to bringing this major event to Montréal. This will help broaden the reach of our city’s research expertise in the HIV response. I wish to thank the Palais des congrès and Tourisme Montréal for their valuable support every step of the way.—Dr. Jean-Pierre Routy

According to the Palais des congrès press release, this event should generate 39,000 hotel room nights and an estimated $20.7+ M in tourism spending. In terms of attendance, the event will be the fifth largest international conference in the history of the Palais since it opened in 1983.

Registration will open in November 2021.
