Vancouver Convention Centre
I attended a travel blogger’s convention this past summer, which was held at the Vancouver Convention Center located right on the waterfront of downtown. I’ve been to a number of convention centers and was really impressed with the one in Vancouver…with its innovative design and beautiful setting right on the water surrounded by mountains.
The Vancouver Convention Centre (Center for American spelling) opened in 1987, but was significantly remodeled in time to be one of the venues for the 2010 Winter Olympics. The opening ceremonial cauldron is right out front, which is a spectacular piece of art and continues to be a draw for visitors.
With the expansion of the Centre, Vancouver tripled its capacity to cover over a million square feet (four city blocks) including pre-function, meeting, exhibition, and ballroom space.
I’ve spent quite a lot of time in the Vancouver, B.C. area and have been able to see the Vancouver Convention Centre from all angles…it’s really an impressive property to visit. Whether you’re attending a function, strolling downtown, or taking a harbor cruise, don’t miss this architectural marvel.
If you’re interested, you can see my video of Vancouver Harbor.
