“A culinary experience extraordinaire masquerading as a convention centre.”

– Allstate Insurance

It’s unusual for a convention centre to offer five-star catering. But at the Vancouver Convention Centre, preparing first class food and beverage for our guests is simply second nature. After all, that’s been our mandate since our inception in 1987. Whether it’s a breakfast meeting for ten or a gourmet dinner for thousands, we provide high quality service and an enticing menu selection.
