AN UNCONVENTIONAL DINNER
Hosted by the Vancouver Convention Centre
Located on Vancouver’s downtown waterfront with a dramatic mountain backdrop, the Vancouver Convention Centre offers one of the most beautiful settings in the world. Just ask the TED Conference attendees! This inspiring place was designed with environmental sustainability top of mind, incorporating the very latest in green practices and technology, including the largest “living” roof in Canada. The Vancouver Convention Centre is the world’s first LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum- certified convention centre, as well as the first-ever repeat winner of the International Association of Congress Centres’ award for “World’s Best Convention Centre.” The Executive Leadership Forum reception and dinner will feature a breathtaking backdrop of floor-to-ceiling windows and stunning harbour views that will inspire the mind, soul and palate. Our award winning chef and his culinary team will create a feast to be remembered from our “scratch” kitchen philosophy of using fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients. It will be the most unconventional, convention centre cuisine you will ever experience!
