Located on the edge of the downtown harbour with breathtaking views of the water and mountains, the Vancouver Convention Centre is the perfect setting for an unforgettable wedding. Any one of our Signature waterfront rooms can set the stage for an intimate celebration or a large extravagant affair. Add tantalizing five-star cuisine made from only fresh, local and seasonal ingredients combined with unparalleled service from a team of professionals, and your special day will be extraordinary.
We offer three stunning Signature rooms for wedding dinners. The Vancouver Convention Centre does not charge a room rental for Banquet functions, but there is a minimum Food & Beverage spend for our most popular rooms (exclusive of taxes and service charge):
Our West Ocean Foyer, located on Level Two, has stunning floor to ceiling views of Stanley Park, the North Shore mountains and the harbour. Included with the foyer space is an outdoor patio area that is ideal for holding a ceremony (up to 220 guests) or a cocktail reception. This unique foyer space is transformed into a breathtaking room that can accommodate about 220 guests. The minimum Food & Beverage spend for the West Level 2 Ocean Foyer is $20,000 (exclusive of taxes and service charge).
Our Summit Level Ballroom, located on Level Three, also has amazing views of the North Shore mountains and harbour. The Summit Level is truly an exclusive space that also boasts an outdoor balcony for soaking in the view; as well as a bonus room which is perfect to hold a ceremony (up to 235 guests) or for an extravagant buffet set up. The Summit Level can comfortably accommodate up to about 340 guests. The minimum Food & Beverage spend for the Summit Level is $30,000 (exclusive of taxes and service charge).

Anything but conventional
It’s truly exceptional for a convention centre to offer five-star catering – or to host the large number of wedding celebrations that we do, 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.
