Vancouver Convention Centre - Review
Opened in 1986, the Vancouver Convention Centre is one of the largest facilities in Canada. The multi-functional building has a cruise terminal at the east wing, a hotel, exhibition halls, meeting rooms and a grand ballroom.
Even though you can walk around the building any time of the day, the Public tour is much preferred by tourists. The tour covers the architecture of the building along with its unique features like the 6-acre living roof, building style, marine habitat and much more.

Vancouver Convention Centre, Vancouver Reviews
I walked in with my wife a day after my conference ended to go to a restaurant I enjoyed earlier in the week. We were met by a security guard who walked up and put her hand in my face and immediately told us that we were trespassing. I told her we were going to a restaurant in there and their website says it's open. All she did was point to the door and say "sir, the building is closed, I'm going to have to ask you to leave". No direction, no help, no explanation. Fine, you lost my business.
The view and food are excellent, but we can't get past the horrible service. There were two choices on the menu between beef and sablefish, a few guests at the table had dietary issues where they can't have beef, so we had told our server who was kind and made note of it. When the meals came out, another server came with her to set the plates. The other server had instructed all plates to be put down by alternating the beef and fish around the table. When our server had voiced the dietary concerns, the other person had simply said to place them all down anyways and let them sort it out or exchange. Luckily everyone at the table was very accommodating in switching, not wanting to cause a scene, but this is very disappointing. Dietary concerns should not be taken lightly and if there were more complications that would've cause an issue, things would've gotten very serious. On top of this, there was only one refill of drinks for the whole night since guests have been seated from the beginning. This has been the worst catering service so far for the functions we had attended in the past two years.
The East Convention Center Building, under the white sails, is an easy walk from, public transit at the Waterfront Station. This smaller of the 2 Convention Centres, is ideal for trade shows and events, because the building seems more manageable and not overwhelming for an afternoon of trade show presenters or whatever is being shown. Thanks .....
Huge conference hall venue with lots of large exhibition spaces. There are also break out rooms upstairs which also double up as large lecture theatres but as they are flat it's less ideal. Beautiful views of the mountain as well as the harbour + cruiseliner also dock in here. Quite an active square and close to all the shops or decent selection of restaurants if you venture off just 5 minutes from here.
A really great event location - well run, clean, with a number of great spaces. Have been there for a number of events, and always found the Centre staff polite and helpful. Good sized parking lot ( never had a problem finding a space, even though you right in the middle of the city) and it's location means great views at break times!
