Vancouver Convention Centre Blog

The Vancouver Convention Centre is home to over 550 events a year – conventions, trade shows and other events of all shapes and sizes that connect people and ideas.

Our blog is dedicated to sharing ideas that inspire – from event innovation to stories about people and trends that elevate the event experience.
