|OPEX '95 (7/28/2005)||The Office Products Exposition 1995 was held in Montreal. It was a worldwide gathering of explorers, from Australia to Vancouver.|
|UrbexMalt 2015 (9/12/2015)||This is the 4th edition of the annual urban exploration meeting in Montreal, Québec, Canada.|
A record 110 guests showed up for the evening.
2015 was the Canada Malting's 110th birthday, and we were back altogether to honour this milestone.
All of the urban exploration enthusiasts in Québec were invited and some came from Ontario and even from France, dressed in their best clothes.We took a group picture with 96 of the guests, far exceeding the 63 of the previous year.
This year, over 150 pictures were exhibited including fifty by the artist & photographer Daniel Guilbert.
He presented his clichés of the Canada Malting taken after its closure in the 1980s and later in the 1990s.
The old glass globes were illuminated again by electricity fed into the old fixtures in order to revive the plant as it was 30 years ago. The DJ, the fireplace and all the installations where again at the rendez-vous.

|UrbexMalt 2017 (9/16/2017)||Here's the 6th edition of UrbexMalt, one of the biggest urban explorers meeting in North America, held once again in Montreal|
For the first time this year, the event went international, with guests coming from Australia, USA, UK and of course Canada. This year's event was once again bigger than the previous one, with a total of 180 people who have attended.
Many improvements were done this year, including a huge mural by artist Jean-François Charest, the addition of a cinema room, lighting and ambient effects in the main room, a "fire breathing" performance, stickers made for the occasion, and new artefacts including the building's original blueprints from 1905 and 1930.
The group picture, taken at the same spot every year, was a real challenge to achieve: two levels of 40 feet-long benches were installed to fit the 150 people present on the picture.
