The dream that came true

«... the Salon National des Collectionneurs de Drummondville changed name to become Salon National des Collectionneurs Michel Laliberté.»

It's in 1994 that Michel Laliberté got into building an expo that would reunite tens of collectors of all kinds to expose, sell, buy and trade collectibles. After several months of recruiting and negociations with various center of congress, Michel finally saw his project being carried out. Indeed, March 30, 1996, at the Pavillon Thématique du Village Québécois d'Antan of Drummondville (wich has housed the show until 2002), opened the first Salon National des Collectionneurs de Drummondville.

This first edition, which counted approximately 75 exhibitors, attracted 1000 visitors. Ever since, the expo never ceased growing. In 2002, Michel put an end to 7 years of collaboration with the Pavillon Thématique to install his show at the Pavillon des Pionniers of Saint-Hyacinthe. Unfortunately, he will never see the event in this new city.

Michel Laliberté died on November 19, 2002 after several years of fight against cancer. He passed the torch to his wife Denise Laliberté and to François Bellerose, collector and friend. In 2003, for its first year at Saint-Hyacinthe, the Salon National des Collectionneurs de Drummondville changed name to become Salon National des Collectionneurs Michel Laliberté.

Today, with about 220 exhibitors coming from the four corners of the province and exposing on more than 450 tables, the Salon National des Collectionneurs Michel Laliberté is the greatest event of the kind in Quebec.
