Vancouver Convention Centre celebrates 10th anniversary

Vancouver Convention Centre (VCC) is marking the 10th anniversary since it opened the doors to its West building; 5,561 events later, the facility has become an icon for the city.

The addition of the West building tripled the facility’s capacity, with the Convention Centre welcoming over nine million guests from around the world and generating over CAD$2.4bn (US$1.8bn) in direct spending for British Columbia over the past decade.

This back catalogue of events ranges from major city-wide conventions, including the TED Conference and SIGGRAPH computer graphics conference, to consumer and tradeshows, private meetings, banquets and fundraisers, as well as other special events.

VCC is the world’s first double LEED Platinum certified convention centre.

Conventions booked for the future include the 2025 International Convention of Alcoholics Anonymous which is expected to draw 48,000 delegates from around the world.
