Take your next virtual 5 à 7... in the Townships!

Where will you take your next 5 à 7 or video call? Maybe by in a Townships's vineyard, at the mount Ham summit, on the Route des Sommets or in front of the Memphrémagog lake! We show you how.

The Zoom platform is more popular than ever for virtual 5 à 7 ou videoconferencing and it also allows you to show something else rather than your house as a background. Like beautiful scenaries of the Townships...

The Eastern Townships's team has gathered some of the most beautiful pictures of the region that you can downloaded so you can brag on how lucky you are to be where you are!

Keep scrolling to download each background. There are instructions on how to use them at the bottom of this post.
