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.
On February 10, GLOBE 2020, the largest and longest-running sustainable business summit and innovation showcase in North America, will kick off in our West building. We spoke with GLOBE Series CEO, Mike Gerbis, about what to expect at GLOBE 2020, and how the event has evolved over the last thirty years to be more effective and engaging for its attendees.

For this winter season, rather than displaying our usual holiday décor, we wanted the facility to better reflect what matters most to us: where we are, the community we are apart of and our commitment to sustainability. Through social procurement we were able to partner with a local social enterprise and artists to repurpose our existing decorations into new ornaments and recycled trees – a perfect fit, and an opportunity to add unique value to the holiday experience at our facility.

So whether it's remembering to turn off the taps or taking shorter showers, anything you can do to reduce water usage and waste goes a long way. Now imagine applying that mindset to a convention centre with 466,500 ft2 of function space.
