Vancouver Convention Centre

With our harbourfront location and breathtaking views, the Vancouver Convention Centre offers one of the most beautiful settings in the world. The addition of the new West Building has tripled capacity, for a combined total of 466,500 square feet of meeting, exhibition, ballroom, and plenary theatre space.

Both the East and West Buildings are designed as a series of modules to offer the highest degree of flexibility. This new combination also allows simultaneous events, each with their own separate access and function space. Add first class cuisine, the most advanced technology and an exceptional sustainability mandate and your event is sure to be nothing less than remarkable.


An icon on the downtown waterfront, the facility is comprised of two uniquely designed buildings: Vancouver Convention Centre East and West. Centrally located, surrounded by ocean and mountains, and perfectly balanced by a vibrant, urban downtown inhabited by world-class restaurants, hotels and shopping. The facility covers 1.2 million ft2 (111,500 m2) or four city blocks, with the West building built 60% on land and 40% over water. First ever repeat winner of the International Association of Congress Centres (AI PC) award for ‘World’s Best Convention Centre’ (2002, 2008).
