Vancouver Convention Centre Celebrates 10th Birthday

The West Building of the Vancouver Convention Centre, known for its beautiful water views, opened its doors in April 2009 and has hosted more than 5,500 events. The addition of the structure tripled the facility’s capacity, enabling the convention center to welcome more than 9 million guests from around the world to gatherings such as major citywide conventions, consumer and trade shows, private meetings, banquets, fundraisers, community events, special events, public celebrations, and film and TV shoots. Vancouver Convention Centre is the world’s first double LEED Platinum certified convention center.

Elevated Tree Walk Experience Planned for Squamish

Sea to Sky Gondola’s mission is to make it easy for people to connect with the great outdoors. In keeping with that philosophy, the organization plans to erect an accessible, architecturally stunning tree walk that winds 34 meters into the sky, offers soaring 360-degree views and provides access for guests of all ages and abilities. The elevated trail experience starts at Summit Lodge and leads guests on a 2.5-kilometer return trip through the trees and over wetlands along Panorama Ridge. The new structure is the first of its kind in North America and designed to thoughtfully integrate into nature. The Squamish-based tourism attraction opened in 2014. 

Maple Leaf Adventures Introduces Cascadia

A Canadian ecotourism pioneer, Maple Leaf Adventures, has launched the 138- foot catamaran Cascadia in British Columbia to provide luxury expeditions along the region’s beautiful western coast. Owners Kevin Smith and Maureen Gordon were inspired by the increasing demand for transformational experiences in unspoiled regions, which is a great fit for incentive trips. Accommodating up to 24 guests, Cascadia is designed to offer a more intimate and authentic experience, one aligned with the scale of the coastal inlets and the communities that guests will visit. Regular itineraries include Haida Gwaii, Great Bear Rainforest, Vancouver Island, southern British Columbia’s fjords, and wine cruising through the Gulf Islands.

Meeting in an idyllic, natural setting doesn’t mean you have to give up a dynamic urban energy –at least not when you’re gathering in The Woodlands, a charming community located less than 30 miles from Houston and George Bush Intercontinental Airport. The town boasts a full social calendar, as well as all of the conveniences found in a more metropolitan locale. But it is shaded by acres of heritage trees, surrounded by neighborhood parks and centered around the sparkling waters of Lake Woodlands and The Woodlands Waterway. 

 

Science has proven what’s long been suspected: Being near water increases creativity and decreases stress levels. The sound of rocking boats moored at a marina, the sparkle and glimmer as the sun hits the lake, the feel of the water as it tickles the toes: It’s the perfect way to relax, recharge and reconnect. So, what better way to engage with your meeting guests and get the creative juices flowing than at a waterside resort!
