“It's only a convention centre”
Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

Not really much here for a tourist to the city. Nothing much else I can say about it. Its in a good location in the city though, so if you are going to a convention here, give you a good base to see the Gastown area of Vancouver

“Award winning design”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Located downtown at the water front. It is divided into an east wing at Canada place and a west wing where the Olympic torch is located just outside. Great water views from its 4 story high glass outer walls. The west wing has a green grassy roof. It was fun watching the seaplanes land and takeoff next door. The modern washrooms were impeccable and clean. I was surprised by the quality and variety of the food served while attending a conference there especially when they were catering for 1500 of us.

“Great facility, great views....don't miss it!”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

This amazing beautiful convention centre is constructed of BC products and has a green roof and other green & recycling features that make it a very unique building. It has incredible conference facilities, sweeping views and is deligtful to work in.....I have attended conferences and presented at conferences in this amazing building so have enjoyed all that it has to offer. Even if you are not at a show, it is a most interesting building to visit.
