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.

Just as we believe our facility is designed from top to bottom to inspire, the events we have the honour of hosting inspire us on a daily basis.

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