The event, which has quickly become a much-anticipated QAHN tradition, and which is hosted by the members of QAHN's Montreal Committee, is billed as an informal gathering of English- and French-speaking heritage enthusiasts to "learn more about what QAHN is doing, and to exchange ideas about the challenges currently facing the heritage community in Quebec."

Another highlight of the program was Nathalie Martin of the City of Montreal, who gave a presentation on the heritage policies of the city.
