Vancouver Convention Centre is adjacent to Canada Place and on the Waterfront. Easily accessible by public transport, it offers good convention facilities as also retail and entertainment opportunities.

I thought for the longest time that Hong Kong had the nicest conference/exhibit center in the World. Now it is second. This building is beautiful, the materials are awesome, it is comfortable! A true delight. And it is eco- friendly.
