Vancouver Convention Centre, Vancouver Reviews
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!
Convention Centre is well lit and generally well staffed. Came for the fanexpo and was treated well by all convention centre employees. One gripe was the entrance was placed at the far end of the pier and so costumed attendees were forced to go quite far in the November cold air! Parking is very convenient with a reasonable rate considering the location.
Breathe taking. Loved it, wish parking on the street was longer especially for $2/ 30 minutes
FanExpo was fantastic. First time there and will spend a little extra to go as VIP next year or go to LA for their comicon.
