Vancouver Convention Centre
Located on Vancouver’s downtown waterfront with a dramatic mountain backdrop, the award-winning Vancouver Convention Centre offers one of the most beautiful settings in the world. Covering four city blocks, the Convention Centre’s two connected buildings feature 466,500 ft2 (43,340 m2) of flexible meeting, exhibition, ballroom and plenary space. The Convention Centre is home to over 550 events a year, from regional and international conventions, consumer and trade shows, meetings, banquets, community and special events.
Designed with the latest environmentally sustainable features and technologies, along with an unwavering commitment to sustainable practices, the Convention Centre is recognized globally for its leadership in environmental sustainability. In 2017, its iconic West building was awarded LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certification (version 4) for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance by the Canada Green Building Council. Coupled with its 2010 Platinum certification for New Construction, the Vancouver Convention Centre is the first double LEED Platinum convention centre in the world.
Ranked the Best Convention Centre and Best Convention Centre Service in North America by Watkins Research Group (2016), the Convention Centre’s team of professionals brings together event details seamlessly –from audio-visual, rigging and lighting to security and technology requirements. The facility’s culinary team also offers five-star cuisine from a “scratch” kitchen philosophy of using fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients and exclusively serves British Columbia’s globally-recognized VQA wine.
