What is G-Anime?

G-Anime is a japanese animation festival that is held twice every year. The main edition, in winter, is held at the Palais des congrès de Gatineau. G-Anime is mostly dedicated to Japanese animation and, of course, mangas. The convention also covers many other “geeky” fields, particularly web culture and video games. This festival is organized by the Société d’animation japonaise de Gatineau (SAJG). This is a non-profit organization whose mandate is to promote Japanese animation in French in the National Capital Region.

Are you looking for a place to stay?

G-Anime has a suggestion for you!
We have a partnership with the Four Point Sheraton is linked to the Palais des Congrès by a sky bridge that goes through the Maison du Citoyen, which means you don't even have to take a single step outside during the cold winter!

Furthermore, we have negotiated a special rate for all of you! The Sheraton Four-Points is offering G-Anime participants a fixed rate per occupant, which means that whether you are 1 or 4, you only have to pay 149$ for a room with 2 double beds.

This is really the best quality-price you can find around, but hurry up, the offer is valid only until December 27th 2022 or until there is not more room available!

Due to a technical problem with the reservation site, you must select your room (1 or 2 beds) and indicate a maximum of 2 people (even if you plan to be 4).

If you already made your reservations and you do have an additional occupants charge, please contact the hotel for an adjustment.
