Longueuil, December 6, 2019 - During the annual gala of the Société québécoise des professionnels en relations publiques (SQPRP), the Réseau de transport de Longueuil (RTL) was awarded the silver medal in the “Event” category for the launch of the Agglomération de Longueuil’s Vision 2025. The firm TACT, which helped the RTL to mount the event, was also recognized at the December 3 gala held at the Casino de Montréal.
The SQPRP gala celebrates inspiring public relations projects and the professionals behind them.
In August 2018, the five mayors of the Agglomération de Longueuil unveiled Vision en transport en commun 2025, a blueprint for key projects design to meet users’ public transit needs. The RTL and TACT were rewarded for the high quality and impact of their communication tools and for the overall strategy underpinning this major event.
“Not only was the launch of the Agglomération de Longueuil’s Vision en transport en commun 2025 a great success in terms of participation, media coverage and political positioning, it also informs every action taken by the RTL,” stated Jonathan Tabarah, Chairman of the RTL Board of Directors. “Congratulations to our communications team!”
