The 3 Best Places to Host an Event in Vancouver

By Chris Boyle

Stanley Park Pavilion

Host an event

Stanley Park is arguably Vancouver’s most famous outdoor space.

Enormous, green and sprawling, with a wealth of manmade and natural beauty to offer, the park’s pretty rose gardens hide one of the best events venues in the city: the charming and beautiful Stanley Park Pavilion. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Queen Elizabeth II have both hosted events at the Pavilion, which has a number of different spaces to offer. A lavish period ballroom with heaps of glamour and vintage charm is perfect for hosting a spectacular banquet or dance, while the inviting and elegant Rose Garden Tea Room sports views of the Park Gardens and is just the right spot for a smart cocktail reception. Other highlights are the casual-chic Bar & Grill, which is great for relaxed fun with friends or colleagues, and its 200-seat verandah – an enchanting “forest patio” immersed in natural beauty, and the perfect place to spot Canadian bald eagles soaring through the sky. These can all or individually be the setting for your event, with expert staff on hand to arrange every detail to perfection.

Vancouver Convention Centre

The world famous Vancouver Convention Centre is located at iconic Canada Place on the Vancouver waterfront. It is well known as a venue for conferences, exhibitions and banquets, and is the perfect place to host your next business events.

Its many achievements include winning the International Association of Congress Centres’ award for “World’s Best Convention Centre” twice, in 2002 and 2008. The center has wonderful views across the sea to the North Shore Mountains, state-of-the-art facilities to ensure your function goes off without a hitch, and the impressive space and stature to make the evening truly spectacular.
