“The staff and the team of people that work for and represent the Vancouver Convention Centre are top notch – certainly some of the best in the business. They provide excellent customer service and their ‘can do’ attitude is much appreciated. It felt like a real partnership throughout the entire planning and execution of the conference. Simply, they are just a joy to work with and fantastic at what they do!”

Cindy Stark

“I commend the entire team at the Vancouver Convention Centre for the incredible effort in hosting our group. There were many modifications to our event over the planning process, however, the team was extremely accommodating and presented solutions that met our high level of expectations at all times. Without their determination and commitment to excellence, we could not have executed such a successful event."
