The Vancouver Convention Centre is recognized for its unique aesthetic approach. The interior walls were assembled with 6,000 planks of sustainable BC hemlock, and were stacked by a Kuka robotic arm – a first for the BC woodworking industry.

With more than 470,000 square feet of highly flexible function space, the Convention Centre spans two buildings, and is designed as a series of modules that can be combined or divided to suit the needs of any imaginable event.

By connecting the interior design with the spectacular natural landscape of British Columbia, the Vancouver Convention Centre is one of the greenest convention centres in the world. It boasts a living roof, seawater heating and cooling, on-site water treatment, and fish habitat built into the foundation of the West Building. The space has been awarded the GO GREEN certificate from the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) for industry-approved, environmental best practices in building management.
