Partner City



Vancouver is consistently voted one of the world’s most livable cities, and has received countless awards and accolades for its attraction to meeting planners and visitors worldwide. The city is surrounded by snow-capped peaks, lush green parks, and the sparkling Pacific Ocean – combine that with an award-winning convention centre, first-class hotels and exceptional cuisine, and you’ll see why Vancouver strongly appeals to meeting organizers and delegates alike.

Vancouver has also achieved the all-important balance between accessibility to destinations worldwide, meeting spaces that can accommodate a range of attendee numbers and tastes, and year-round activity options for post-conference gatherings. With all that and more, it’s no wonder the city is quickly becoming a preferred fixture on the world meetings stage.

With a resume of meetings and events that includes the annual TED Conference, the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, and the Professional Conference Management Association (PCMA)’s Convening Leaders conference, Vancouver has what it takes to make your event one that attendees will talk about for years to come.

There’s always something exciting to do in Vancouver, from sporting events and cultural festivals, through to live theatre, art openings and culinary happenings.  Learn more about Vancouver’s event calendar.
