The InterContinental Montreal : Official hotel for the Rendez-Vous des Maîtres 2012
MONTREAL, January 23, 2012 - Proud to be associated with the first edition of the prestigious Rendez-Vous des Maîtres as the official hotel, the InterContinental Montreal is delighted to continue to be involved in the tennis world. "Our hotel has been a partner of the Rogers Cup for over 20 years and our team has always shown great interest in the sport. We are very pleased to participate in the first edition of this major event for our city and we will do everything we can to help in the success of this initiative, which takes place at a time when tourism demand is traditionally weaker in Montreal", says Bernard Chenevert, General Manager of the InterContinental Montreal. The Rendez-Vous des Maîtres produced by StarGames and evenkowill be held at the Bell Centre on March 2, at 19:30. Two matches will be presented, between four of the greatest champions in the history of tennis, which alone have won a combined total of 25 Grand Slam titles and 297 tournaments on the ATP. Thus, in the first game of the evening, Jimmy Connors will rub shoulders with Ivan Lendl, and then the match between Andre Agassi Michael Chang will follow. The evening will certainly be a great time for all the tennis fans.
