Outdoor Plazas

The Convention Centre offers 57,964 ft2 (5,385 m2) of plaza space surrounding its two buildings – perfect to extend the scope of an event with outdoor activations.

The East Plaza located at the entrance to the East building is a welcoming space where delegates can enjoy the breathtaking harbour views. Product display and other activations can also be arranged on this space to further enhance your event.

The Jack Poole Plaza adjacent to the West building is now a landmark in Vancouver. Home to the majestic Cauldron that burned brightly during the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, this vast space is perfect for festivals, community gatherings and special events, such as the Pakistan Festival, the Mexican Day Independence Festival and the Canucks Autism Network Family Festival. It is also the ideal space for delegates to unwind and simply enjoy the breathtaking harbour views.
