About Vancouver

Visiting Vancouver in the summer is a spectacular experience. The city is full of sunshine, excitement and several outdoor adventures. From enjoying just walking around downtown Vancouver, to biking the stunning Seawall or driving up to Grouse Mountain, the options are endless!

Here are some examples of what you can enjoy in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia Canada:

  Stanley Park is one of the top city parks in North America. It is one of the city's main tourist attractions, ideally situated on a peninsula at the northwestern edge of downtown. Our conference venue is a short ten minute walk from the park.
  No trip to Vancouver is complete without a visit to Granville Island and its Public Market, arguably the epicentre for Vancouver's culinary enthusiasm. The Island is home 300 businesses, studios and facilities, and it retains an old-fashioned, timeless feeling. Craftsmen and artists take up residence here, and it's clear that the tradition of apprenticeship and mastery is alive and well.
  Aboriginal Vancouver - Immerse yourself in the living traditions of British Columbia’s Aboriginal peoples, and experience authentic music and dance, food, arts, stories, and fascinating cultural artifacts.
  Capilano Suspension Bridge has been a Vancouver landmark since 1889. Visitors and locals flock to this famous swinging bridge across Capilano Canyon, which is one of Canada's most popular attractions.
  Chinatown in Vancouver is Canada's largest Chinatown. Chinatown has been humming busily for more than a century with vivid colours, exotic cuisine and a vibrant culture.
  Grouse Mountain is the pre-eminent all-in-one, four season destination with something for everyone. The wilderness paradise is located 15-minutes from downtown.
