Even if you are not attending a convention, the VCC is a must to visit. Stroll outside and watch the cruise ships on and off load passengers and cargo. Take in the beauty of the North Shore mountains and Burrard Inlet. Inside, stop for coffee and then wander upstairs to shop and enjoy the elegant restaurant. If you are attending a convention, know that there are a lot of amenities including the all important abundance of washrooms. Helpful and courteous staff will help you get around.

I attended a conference in this place. Awesome building, very ecofriendly, huge, great location overseeing the Vancouver Harbour. It has a large basement where we attended expo and has multiple huge rooms!! Really great place for large conferences. Great eatouts in nearby pan Pacific hotel and Fairmont Waterfront. One helpful advice is to be aware that some west side rooms are in neighbouring Canada Place.

It is great just to see all the Cruise ships and also Sea Planes operate behind the convention center.

All in all must for all Conference goers and even for casual tourists there is enough to see around including views of Sea wall, Lions gate bridge and North Vancouver...

Located in an incredible spot, at the Pacific waterfront, Vancouver Convention Centre offers to its guests the opportunity of putting together professional skills and nature watching. Everybody can only admire the ability of using recyclable materials in very modern architecture, with best facilities.
I also liked the way of showing to the guests pages of the history of Canada, by presenting Canadian personalities from different times and fields!

Who on earth should take time out their holidays to visit a convention center? If it's this one, then you should.

Even though we couldn't go inside, there are still heaps of things to do outside, including views of massive cruise ships, the north coast, a pixel orca, and some cafes and restaurants around the outside. Definitely worth a walk through.

You can include this in a walk around the seawall in Stanley Park as it is not that far away or simply hop a bus for the short duration.
