The PERC 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting will be held at the Fairmont Tremblant Hotel, Mont Tremblant, Quebec. Located at the foot of the majestic Tremblant peaks, Fairmont Tremblant offers you the most refined experience of the Tremblant destination. It’s the only "ski-in/ski-out" hotel in Tremblant with ski valet service. In 2016-2017 Fairmont Tremblant underwent a multimillion dollar transformation to completely modernize and revitalize its public spaces, along with its food and beverage offer.  We look forward to hosting the PERC 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting at this iconic hotel.
