No two businesses are alike. Neither are our conference venues.

And we realize that no one’s on the clock 24/7. So when the big event is over, there’s still lots to do and enjoy. Many Coast locations have pools, fitness centres, and spas, so your attendees can unwind and re-charge. So get more pleasure, and more leisure, out of your next meeting – choose Coast.

CSES: Your home team

ISES: A passion for excellence

MPI: Ahead of the curve

It’s been an exciting time for Canada and British Columbia. In 2010, we welcomed the world to Vancouver. Members of the Canadian Special Events Society (CSES) had an opportunity to show off their talents, from rentals to food service, décor and beyond. CSES is a non-profit organization created in Vancouver in 1998 with a commitment to spotlighting local business and showcasing members whenever possible. Whether at any of our many networking events or industry roundtables or through our support of local event-management students, our board of directors is active and engaged. Our membership crosses all sectors of the industry. It includes event-planners, venues, caterers, managers of attractions, audiovisual professionals and décor and rental companies. If you’d like to connect with a locally focused association, build strong connections and network, call us at 604-438-3687. Recently, we’ve focused on bringing members together for educational yet entertaining networking events. Our members appreciate making personal connections with other professionals in a variety of situations. From mixing martinis together to learning about setting business goals or managing risk, our goal is always to provide relevant and engaging opportunities to network and generate business. Whether looking for new business, seeking reconnection with colleagues or promoting new products and services, all members and non-members are encouraged to attend our upcoming events. Visit us at www.cses.ca. Deborah Wallace, president CSES BC

On behalf of the International Special Events Society Vancouver Chapter (ISES), I congratulate all industry professionals for their contributions to the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games. This success proves that we foster a spirit of collaboration and that we are dedicated to and educated in the delivery of creative excellence and professionalism in special events. With over 7,200 members in more than 35 countries throughout the world, ISES is international, representing specialevent producers, co-ordinators, suppliers and educators and professionals. Our three Canadian chapters – in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto – are managed locally along with a Canadian affiliate headquarters and national board. ISES Canada provides a national voice for the special-events industry and represents its members in the international events community. Two international conferences – the Special Event Show and ISES EventWorld – offer members further professional development, unsurpassed networking with global leaders and exchange of information on innovative trends and developments. ISES Vancouver hosts events emphasizing excellence in education, professional development and networking. These programs attract many of the industry‘s top professionals. We disseminate valuable information and have developed Student Temporary Experience Portal (STEP), which helps students gain valuable experience. Please visit www.isesvancouver.com. I look forward to seeing you at our next event! Kathie Madden, president ISES Vancouver

2011 is looking to be another exciting year for British Columbia’s meetings industry. Capturing the momentum of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, Vancouver welcomed over 2,500 of Meeting Professionals International’s biggest and brightest stars at MPI’s World Education Congress in July 2010, and the city shone brightly. MPI encouraged onthe-ground reporting, using social media to spread the message continually throughout the five-day congress. Globally, we showed the meeting and events industry that it must include this world-class destination in its future convention plans. Now, with renewed infrastructure solidly in place – including the convention centre expansion project, new hotels and Olympic legacies like the Sea to Sky Highway and Translink/SkyTrain improvements – we have proactively placed Vancouver ahead of the curve, and the city is realizing opportunities as the economy rebounds. The MPI B.C. chapter thinks locally and acts globally, seizing strategic bigger-picture opportunities and equipping members to be innovators, entrepreneurs and experts. We encourage the magic of networking and partnering so that we can become more successful for our industry and make the world a better place through our corporate social-responsibility programs. Meetings mean business, and meetings change the world! MPI, the meeting and event industry’s largest and most vibrant global community, provides human connections to knowledge and ideas, relationships and marketplaces. Ryan Soderberg, president MPI British Columbia BIV Magazines

Plug and stay From in-room amenities to mobile applications to special effects, technology helps you maximize your meeting’s value

By Melissa Vasey ocial media and creative visual technologies are giving organizers new ways to promote and plan events. Enhanced efficiency and arresting presentation tools are helping planners set new standards.

The fog comes in Organizers looking to impress with the latest event-planning technologies will be pleased to hear about FogScreen, a projection system finally available in Canada through Creatix Studios International Ltd. in Langley. “It creates a curtain of fog about eight feet tall and about six inches thick,” says David Rowland, president and creative director. “It’s plain water that’s ionized so finely that it doesn’t even feel damp.” A FogScreen can receive mid-air projections of photos, videos and company logos without compromising floor space. “You can project a company logo or even a movie right onto it and see it as clear as if you were projecting it on the silver screen,” Rowland says. “It’s used for special-event applications, [as] Disneyland uses it in the Pirates of the Caribbean. The boat goes right through it. You have this pirate laughing and speaking to you upon the FogScreen. It’s kind of a magical effect.” Rowland calls the FogScreen “a good entranceway to an exhibit or [a] special event.” Photo: Dominic Schaefer

Celling solutions QuickMobile is a Vancouver-based company that’s helping transform eventplanning through development of mobile applications. Patrick Payne, co-founder and chief executive officer, explains that QuickMobile helps planners “mobilize their business. They can take whatever business they currently do and extend it out to the mobile domain.” QuickMobile helps large and small organizations use mobile phones to their fullest potential. It offers text campaigns, mobile websites, social-media and polling solutions and more. Payne says that a conference will “typically have a program guide that’s printed or on the Internet” and that gets handed out to all the attendees. QuickMobile can put that on a mobile phone. The client “can have the full program schedule [or] a list of the attendees,” allow for mutual exchanges or “send out alerts: all these things are possible within the mobile device.” The company’s services have attracted such high-profile clients as Meeting Guests of the Renaissance Vancouver Harbourside Hotel can indulge after hours at the p2b Bistro & Bar

QuickMobile creates custom event-planning applications for the iPhone

Professionals International, PhoCusWright Inc., Flight Centre Ltd. and the Sundance and Whistler film festivals. A custom application can be as simple as an event schedule or so elaborate as to include venue descriptions, bus schedules, maps, social media, etc. “It’s a green solution, so it can reduce a

tremendous amount of paper,” says Payne. “We did the PhoCusWright 2009 event, [which] eliminated 90,000 printed pages.” “Nowadays, people are really looking to find [ways] to reduce the amount of paper [being used]. They don’t want to carry around a bunch of paper.” continued on page 14

Expert panels Beginning in 2008, Marriott Hotels addressed the needs of its clients for efficient, welldesigned technology. Installing plug-andplay panels in every guestroom, hotels like the Renaissance Vancouver Harbourside Hotel and the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel meet their guests’ needs with one simple tabletop plug-in panel in each room. “Basically, everything is there in one location. There’s no scrambling and crawling around on the floor trying to look for where connections are,” says Michael Parsons, Marriott’s director of group sales. “It’s all in one easy location and ready to connect.” Featuring an RCA jack, a mini-jack, a phone jack, an Ethernet jack and SVideo, high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) and power outlet connections, the system supports a large platform of computer,

phone, recording and gaming technologies. The plug-in panel allows guests easily to connect to the 32-inch LCD high-definition televisions in all guestrooms, for highquality business and recreational use. “It’s been really popular,” says Parsons. “The guests are really embracing it. They love the convenience, they love the accessibility, and they love the flexibility.” Ą

In Victoria, you can rent the entire Craigdarroch Castle, complete with restored rooms

Vancouver vibes For a conference amid one of the world’s finest collections of West Coast aboriginal art, think of the Museum of Anthropology (MOA) at the University of British Columbia, designed by renowned architect Arthur Erickson. You can rent spaces during non-public hours for meetings, weddings, receptions, dinners, cultural performances, awards ceremonies, workshops and even salmon barbecues. Each venue offers access to galleries and spectacular views of the Strait of Georgia. (For more on the MOA, see page 30.) In the heart of Vancouver’s historic Chinatown lies the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, accommodating groups of 10 to 500. Modern facilities suffused with a 15th-century Ming Dynasty ambience will inspire recollections lasting long after the meeting ends. The bayside Vancouver Maritime Museum has spaces for seminars, receptions and dinners for as many as 150. Its many historical exhibits include the RCMP schooner St. Roch, the first ship to navigate the treacherous Northwest Passage in both directions. Do the performing arts play a role in your plans?

The stately Fairmont Hotel Vancouver continues to be popular among event-planners

Vancouver has two multi-faceted theatre spaces available for rent that can accommodate almost any type of function. The Main Stage is a state-of-the-art, full-service 500-seat facility available for large meetings as well as concerts and other public performances. The more intimate Studio can accommodate up to 210. Originally constructed in 1888, Vancouver’s Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre began as a cluster of

buildings used to house and service great steam locomotives. A popular stop for visitors during Expo 86, it was renovated afterward to suit its present use. Today, its glass pavilion continues to commemorate Canada’s rail history by providing a home for Engine 374, which brought, in 1887, the first passenger train to enter the city. You can choose from a variety of venues at this historic site. At the Historic Stewart Farm in Surrey,

the pioneer spirit still survives more than century after this Victorian farmhouse was built. Situated in the middle of Elgin Heritage Park, it’s a charming location for meetings and receptions. North of Vancouver, the cozy Whistler Museum can be rented for day or evening events, suitable for groups up to 75. If groups that play together stay together, at Loon Lake Research and Education Centre, up to 180 participants can mix traditional indoor business with a variety of outdoor pursuits designed to send them back recharged. This facility of UBC is located in Maple Ridge, only an hour’s drive from downtown Vancouver. For historical sensibilities, don’t forget the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, which, like its sister the Fairmont Empress Resort Hotel in Victoria, was first built as part of the Canadian Pacific hotel chain that followed the construction of the railway joining the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. Today, as part of the Fairmont group, both continue to offer superb facilities and services while retaining their 19th-century charm. (For more on the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, see page 62.)

of simultaneous events. (For more on the VICC, see page 94.) The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, situated in the exquisite 19th-century Spencer Mansion, can accommodate up to 80 for a sit-down event or as many as 150 for a cocktail reception, suiting a small to medium-sized business function. Twenty-five minutes from downtown, Caleb Pike Heritage Park features two heritage-designated buildings that you can rent. The Little Red Schoohouse and Caleb Pike House each accommodates about 50

for meetings. On the other end of Victoria’s spectrum, you can situate your meeting in a location fit for a king or queen when you choose Craigdarroch Castle. The entire castle can be rented, and all restored rooms are available for viewing for guests.

The Natural History Gallery allows guests to dine cheek-by-jowl with a stuffed woolly mammoth, grizzly bear or sea lion. In the Modern History Gallery, Captain George Vancouver’s ship, a water wheel and a town from the turn of the 20th century will transport your group back into the past. Earlier history is celebrated in the First Peoples Gallery, featuring artifacts and majestic totem poles. “Whether the setting is Old Town, the cannery or homestead displays, among the totems of the First Peoples Gallery or with the wildlife in a coastal rainforest, your event will create its own history,� says Melaina Haas, communications co-ordinator for the museum. Home to the Nanaimo Museum, the Vancouver Island Conference Centre (VICC) is an inspiring place that spurs good ideas. Function spaces can be turned into salons, meeting rooms, tradeshow floors and pre-function areas. You can either rent the entire facility exclusively or hold your function in conjunction with any of a number

of Okanagan Lake north of Penticton. With its mission of being “a place of learning, spiritual nurture and renewal,” the centre welcomes diverse clients and works to make everyone comfortable. A wide selection of services augments a range of accommodations, including a campsite. A dozen different meeting rooms on the tree-shaded property have capacities from 29 to 365, with food available on site. “Our private beach is a perfect place for early-morning swims, conversation or listening to the water lap gently onto the sandy shore,” says Janet McDonald, executive director. “Walk the labyrinth set amidst orchards and clay cliffs. Visit the chapel and see why it is known as one of B.C.’s sacred places.” At nearby Penticton, the Casabella Princess paddlewheeler is only one of many in the province that you can charter for corporate events and convention leisure tours. Meanwhile, a growing interest in agritourism has encouraged several Okanagan wineries to add meeting spaces and accommodations to their growing list of attractions. The $35-million Mission Hill Family Estate in Westbank can accommodate up to 220 for a

sit-down wine-and-food–pairing dinner or up to 400 for a stand-up event. Corporate functions for up to 72 can be accommodated year-round. Visitors will immediately understand the stated aspiration of proprietor Anthony von Mandl to make Mission Hill one of the world’s 20 best destination wineries. Plans are now under way to add a boutique hotel with 100-plus rooms as well as rental residences. “A six-year transformation of Mission

Hill Winery has recently been completed under the watchful eye of a dedicated team of international architects, designers and craftsmen who share my vision to create a landmark that will stand the test of time and delight visitors from around the world,” says Von Mandl. Just down the road, groups of up to 50 are comfortable in the conference room at Gray Monk Estate Winery. Business meetings, formal or casual events are welcome. Across Okanagan Lake in Kelowna, Summerhill Pyramid, Canada’s most visited winery, welcomes groups of up to 500. The country’s first completely organic winery (with both vineyards and winemaking facilities covered by the certification) is moving toward implementation of more biodynamic practices that are in tune with the personal philosophy of proprietor Steven Cipes and his family. The Sunset Glass Room, the Sunset Veranda and the Pyramid and Vineyard Terrace all offer their own unique styles. (For more on wineries, see feature, page 20.) Ą

Aboriginal explorations Meeting in significant First Nations sites The traditions of the First Nations constituted British Columbia’s original culture. Several bands now share their histories in conference venues. In the East Kootenays, the St. Eugene Golf Resort Casino is much more than a 4.5-star escape from everyday rigours. Ktunaxa Indians have inhabited the area for more than 10,000 years and, as investors in the resort, have woven their history into the facilities. An Oblate mission was constructed on the site in 1873. In 1910, the Canadian government funded and constructed the mission school, which now forms the main part of the hotel complex. Operated at the time by the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, the facility was the first comprehensive Indian “industrial and residential” school to be built in Western Canada, instructing 5,000 children. The school closed in 1970. “To our knowledge, the St. Eugene Mission is the only project in Canada where a First Nation decided to turn the icon of an often sad period of its history into a powerful economic engine by restoring an old Indian residential school into an international destination resort for future generations to enjoy,” says Helder Ponte, director, economic investment,

Ktunaxa Nation Council. St. Eugene Golf Resort Casino offers six meeting rooms with a total of 4,000 square feet. In the Okanagan, the Osoyoos Indian Band has created the Nk’mip (pronounced “in-ka-meep”) Resort, a fourseason destination featuring premium accommodation and experiences, including an award-winning winery, gourmet dining, desert golf, a cultural centre, a full-service spa and meeting spaces. The Nk’mip Conference Centre accommodates up to 350. (For more on Nk’mip and associated facilities, see page 116.) In Duncan, the Cowichan Tribes, B.C.’s largest aboriginal band, operates the Quw’utsun’ Cultural and Conference Centre. Four rooms are available for meetings and conferences in a facility that features hand-carved entrance poles and a spectacular riverfront view. The centre’s Comeakin House is a longhouse, internationally renowned and suitable for a conference or convention hosting up to 250. Enhanced with carvings and paintings by artists of the Coast Salish Nation, this one-room building offers a unique atmosphere for a large business gathering. Meeting-planners can arrange a native dance and a barbecue in which fresh wild Pacific salmon is cooked over an open

Totem at the Quw’utsun’ Cultural and Conference Centre, operated by the Cowichan Tribes

fire on cedar stakes. Dinner can include freshly baked native scow bread and house-made blackberry-apple pie. In Chase, midway between Calgary and Vancouver, the Quaaout Lodge at Talking Rock Resort has undergone a complete renovation of its guestrooms, suites and restaurant. Owned 100 per cent by the Little Shuswap Indian Band and back in full swing since June 2010, the facility features a new cultural gift shop. The addition of balconies or patios to all guestrooms allows better views of Little Shuswap Lake. With its fresh, upscale look, the lodge complements the world-class Talking Rock Golf Course, also at the resort.

A typical tour costs $130 a person and runs about six hours, including an hour’s commute each way to the Cowichan Valley on the other side of the scenic Malahat Summit where McDonald feels the island’s best wineries exist. The fee includes a lunch and tastings of wines from the leader in sparkling wines, Vigneti Zanatta; from Cherry Point Estate Wines; and from the famous Venturi-Schulze Vineyards, producer of balsamic vinegar.

front wineries in the Okanagan. A corporate meeting will typically occur at a hotel or conference centre in Victoria or at the Oceanfront Grand Resort and Marina in Cowichan Bay, which can accommodate groups of up to 250. Brentwood Bay Lodge & Spa on the Saanich Peninsula offers up to 1,200 square feet in meeting space as well as an extensive wine list, but local wineries there tend to be less established than those in the Cowichan Valley. The same holds true for the fledgling wineries of the Comox Valley. BIV Magazines

A business customer wanting to add a winery experience should make plans with McDonald or with one of the wineries themselves. McDonald says organized visits can yield a more rewarding experience than a series of unannounced drop-ins. “They’re much more receptive when we bring tours up than when somebody pulls up in [a] car and goes in,” McDonald says. Her typical group includes seven participants, though she can handle up to 15, with a larger group often splitting in two to ensure more personal experiences. Merridale Estate Cidery in Cobble Hill, for example, often sends half a tour group into its spa, which can accommodate up to 12 at a time. Co-owner Janet Docherty says this option is popular among spouses of conference-goers in Victoria, with groups often splitting up between those touring the orchards and those spending time in the spa. Merridale also uses its apples and other fruit to produce eaux-de-vie (distilled spirits) in addition to the ciders it makes with with its heritage apples.

Heading for the hills Eastward, the landmark Mission Hill Family Estate winery near Kelowna is the epicentre of Okanagan wine tourism. A popular stop for group tours, it often hosts corporate events and dinners showcasing some of the valley’s best offerings. Plenty of smaller wineries, from Gray Monk Estate Winery in Okanagan Centre to Quails’ Gate in West Kelowna and Hester Creek Estate Winery in Oliver offer space for groups to meet, dine and debrief in vineyard settings. (For more on Mission Hill and Gray Monk, see page 18.) “People want to get away from the city,” says Mark Sheridan, Hester Creek’s general manager, who says there are “endless choices” for those looking for something different.

Hester Creek has opened a new winery facility that includes a six-room villa, a boardroom for meetings and a kitchen for food-and-wine events. “Our infrastructure grows each year in the Okanagan. More and more accommodation is coming on, and the epicurean experience to be found in our wine country is incredible,” Sheridan says. Working Horse Winery in Peachland

has gone old-style with its twist on corporate retreats. Amid its organic vineyards, it has a meeting room and kitchen that can accommodate about 30, as well as a guest lounge. This three-year-old winery has hosted team-building seminars, board meetings, a film screening and a CD release party. The winery takes its name from two Suffolk draft horses, Meghan and Greta, and from Merle, a Belgian gelding. They’re happy to meet corporate groups. Cideries, fruit wineries and distilleries are cropping up in the Okanagan, too. Vernon’s Okanagan Spirits has hosted corporate events on a regular basis for the last 12 months in its small tasting room on the fringes of Vernon, a short distance from Predator Ridge Golf Resort and the new Sparkling Hill Resort. “We have had a number of businesses, social groups, private parties [and] spirits connoisseurs who have come to Okanagan Spirits for a private tasting,” says Rodney Goodchild, who oversees sales and marketing. “We can also arrange to cater if required.” Ą

More than 25 other hotels in and around Whistler Village offer meeting and conference services, from the 28,000-square-foot convention hall at the large-capacity Fairmont Chateau Whistler to the intimate 650-square-foot facility at Crystal Lodge. An extensive recreational menu ranges from skiing and snowboarding to zip-trekking, golfing and biking, all possible within easy distance of the meeting venues. Mount Washington Alpine Resort, which hosted 20 international Olympic and Paralympic teams for training pre-games, plans to open the new Vancouver Island Mountain Sports Centre in time for the 2010–11 winter season.

Its Chilcoot Conference Centre can accommodate from 10 to 350, with 3,000 square feet of meeting space equipped with audiovisual technology and catering services that ensure productivity. Also in the Okanagan, Big White Ski Resort is a perennial favourite among corporate guests, as well as families, ski instructors in training and pro skiers testing the latest gear. The Inn at Big White offers a 650-square-foot meeting room with spectacular views of the Monashees that can be configured in theatre, board-

PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS

Professional associations for meeting and event-planners Professional associations provide a means of pooling resources and giving a unified voice to working professionals who share common interests. They may represent broad national and international interests or cover specialty niches within the event-planning industry. In addition to providing forums for like-minded meeting and event-planning professionals, associations offer a wealth of resources, including newsletters, magazines and other reference materials.

MAKING ROOM DYNAMICS WORK FOR YOU

How to choose the right seating arrangement for your meeting Theatre? Classroom? Banquet? Conference? U-shape? Which type of meeting room setup should you use? The answer depends on the objectives of the individual function. Use the information below to help you decide which of the seven major meeting-room designs will work best for your event.

Banquet style

Theatre style

Overview: Chairs are lined up in rows facing the speaker. The rows can be straight, semicircular or herringbone (angled toward the front of the room). If space isn’t an issue, it’s best to offset each row so that delegates are not sitting directly behind one another. Best usage: When attendees take on the characteristics of an audience (e.g., listening to a speaker or watching a slide presentation), theatre style is the most efficient setup. This design is also used to maximize the seating capacity of a meeting room or allow the audience to be as close to the speaker as possible. It is not recommended for taking notes, referring to material in binders or any event at which food is served.

Reception

Overview: Guests are seated at round tables, usually 60, 66 or 72 inches in diameter. Best usage: Banquet style is the setup of choice for most meal functions. In addition, it’s appropriate for small committee meetings and small breakout or study groups involving group interaction and note-taking.

Crescent style

Overview: Attendees are seated at round tables, usually 60, 66 or 72 inches in diameter. Organizers remove the two or three chairs in which delegates would have their backs to the speaker, thus forming a crescent of seating facing the speaker. Best usage: This design works well when you need to use a room for meals and for an educational session that immediately follows. It’s also appropriate for general sessions at which attendees break into small discussion groups in the same room.

Classroom style

Overview: Long, narrow tables are positioned in front of rows of chairs facing the speaker. The tables usually abut one another, although tables that extend beyond the stage ideally should be angled toward the speaker in order to provide better viewing. Water pitchers and glasses are typically placed on the tables. Best usage: Classroom style is the best setup for situations in which the presenter is expected to do most of the talking and when delegates must take notes, refer to material in binders or work on computer equipment. It’s also the most comfortable design for very long sessions.

10/28/10 7:08:10 PM


Conference style

Overview: Delegates are seated on all four sides of a table. For smaller groups (16 persons or fewer), a single conference table is typically used. For larger groups, several six-foot or eight-foot tables are often combined to create a solid rectangular table. Best usage: The conference-style setup is often used for board meetings, committee meetings and other smaller functions at which interaction among participants is expected. This design also can be used for high-level food and beverage functions with a small number of guests.

U-shape

Overview: Rectangular tables are positioned to form a â&#x20AC;&#x153;U.â&#x20AC;? Seating is usually on the outside of the U, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible to seat delegates on both inside legs of the U. Best usage: The U-shape setup is often used for board of directors meetings, committee meetings and breakout sessions involving audiovisual presentations because all attendees can see the AV when the screen is placed at the open end of the U. It also can be used for banquets, with seating on all sides of the U.

Hollow rectangle

Overview: 30-inch-wide classroom tables are arranged in a square or other multi-sided design in which the centre of the design is empty. Best usage: Larger committee or board meetings of 17 to 30 persons at which interaction among attendees is important can benefit from the hollow rectangle design. (Note: Avoid long straight sections of tables more than 12 feet long. Octagons and hexagons work well to improve sight lines among attendees.)

How to use Meeting Placesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; region-by-region directories of venues and services Welcome to the meeting plannersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; resource section of Meeting Places, including directories of all the resources youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need for planning meetings, conferences, conventions and trade shows throughout British Columbia. Start by using the colour-coded map of British Columbia on page 50 to identify the region of your intended event. Then use the two main sections of the Meeting Places resource guide: Meeting Places at a Glance, which offers details of meeting venues in each region; and regional directories, which guide you to all the services youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need wherever you are holding your event.

Meeting places at a glance

Regional directories

Company index

If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for details of specific venues, start with Meeting Places at a Glance, below. First check the B.C. map on page 50 to confirm which region your event is in, then browse the listings under that region.

Refer to the B.C. map on page 50 for the page numbers of individual regional directories. The introductory pages will update you on the latest news: new conference or convention facilities that have come on line in the past year, or significant meeting-venue renovations. The directories that ensue list the services available in each of the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s towns and cities.

If you already know the company you want for the job, simply turn to the company index at the back of the regional directories. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find an alphabetized listing of every company, referring you to the page that includes a description of the company and contact information.

meeting space and distinctive, urban-style amenities. Meeting delegates can opt for the scenic, two-hour drive along the Sea to Sky Highway, enjoy a threehour rail journey on the Whistler Mountaineer or benefit from an eagle’s-eye view before arriving in Whistler via float plane or helicopter. In the heart of Whistler’s vibrant Village, visitors and locals congregate to dine, shop, unwind and rejuvenate. Post-meeting, guests can embark on endless adventures ranging from mountain biking and golfing, to hiking, rock climbing, ATV tours and water sports. Accolades such as the most skiable terrain and the longest ski season in North America have earned Whistler its reputation as a world-renowned winter sports mecca. Whistler is also a family-friendly resort and its enticing selection of spousal and children’s

programs have contributed to meeting planners who choose Whistler enjoying an increased attendance of up to 30%. Meet at the Roundhouse Lodge on Whistler Mountain after a breathtakingly scenic journey on the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola. Dine at the top of the bobsleigh track at the Whistler Sliding Center, convene in the stunning day lodge at Whistler Olympic Park, host a monumental event in the Istken Hall at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Center or venture deep into the backcountry via ATV. Whistler offers a range of extraordinary, off-site venues that exceed the expectations of the most discerning conference delegate. Benefit from alpine magic and unbelievable value. Meet in Whistler: discover, celebrate and share the power to inspire.

The new Parkside Victoria Resort & Spa, also in downtown Victoria, is Canada’s first resort hotel targeting LEED platinum certification for sustainable development and design. This urban boutique hotel features the exclusive penthouse City Club Lounge, an outdoor rooftop patio and gardens, a 25-metre indoor ozonated pool with hot tub, the AquaTerre Spa, 3,000 square feet of meeting space, a private 29-seat movie theatre and a fitness centre.

It’s adjacent to the Nanaimo Museum and the city’s premier performance venue, the Port Theatre. (For more on the VICC, see page 17.)

It too is targeting LEED platinum, with its state-of-the-art green building scheduled to open in fall 2010. This innovative centre will combine academic research and public facilities suitable for 80 to 100 in a main-floor hall overlooking a spectacular vaulted ocean-view atrium and a suspended grey-whale skeleton.

It offers the one-of-a-kind Pacific Mist Hydropath spa treatment. Visit the award-winning Beaufort Vineyard and Estate Winery in the Comox Valley for a picnic in the vineyard that pairs Beaufort wines with local Natural Pastures Cheese.

THOMPSON OKANAGAN

Splendid south Ranching to cycling, with meeting amenities to match

By Peter Mitham rom Mount Robson to Merritt, from Valemount to Vaseux Lake, the Thompson Okanagan region covers a vast swath of British Columbia’s southern Interior, where cultures have crossed paths for millennia. Indeed, the name Kamloops means “meeting of the waters,” though today the city is also a meeting place of highways from across the country. This has made it a favourite among convention planners. “It’s easy for people to come in from the Revelstoke area or the Salmon Arm area or Clearwater,” says Lee Morris, chief executive officer of Tourism Kamloops. The Interior Savings Centre sports arena, seating 6,400, has

20,000 square feet of exhibition space: an important venue for large-scale events. Moreover, the city boasts 3,000 hotel rooms, with a new Sandman Signature Hotel planned for downtown in 2011. Several conference facilities besides the arena also exist. These include the South Thompson Inn & Conference Centre, accommodating up to 200 inside and offering 55 acres of outdoor meeting space; the 30,000-square-foot Kamloops Convention Centre with the 203-room Kamloops Towne Lodge; and Thompson Rivers Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Campus Activity Centre, with 10,000 square feet of meeting facilities. Yet the city offers more than event space. Dianne Lawson of Thompson Valley Tours & Rentals takes corporate groups of up to 30 on local ATV and snowmobile tours. Often, a group will split in two, with one half heading into the backcountry and the other enjoying a round of golf. (In 2009,

We call it the best board meeting they’ll ever experience.” Lawson says many local hotels include her outings in the corporate packages they offer companies. A typical meeting will last a day and a half, and then there’s a recreational element, golf being a common choice. “We’re seeing a lot of that,” Morris says. “Bring the meeting here; add the golf to it.” One of the region’s highest concentrations of courses is around Vernon, 45 minutes north of Kelowna.

at the Rise and several others. The community also offers water sports on Lake Okanagan, skiing at the Silver Star Mountain Resort and – for those who really want to chill out – the cold sauna at the 152-room Sparkling Hill Resort, which descends to -110 C. Sparkling Hill offers 10,700 square feet of meeting space, including a ballroom with seating for 250. Corporate groups seeking a retreat can reserve an eight-suite wing of the hotel, complete with a 12-person boardroom outfitted with audiovisual equipment, whiteboards and a private lounge and patio offering views of the rugged north Okanagan landscape. European in sensibility, Sparkling Hill provides an alternative to the rustic O’Keefe Ranch just north of Vernon. At O’Keefe, the Cattlemen’s Club restaurant seats 140, while the outdoor Greenhow pavilion seats 150. Kelowna-based Monashee Adventure Tours Inc. offers a different way to explore the region.

20 kilometres, either to the Kettle Valley railway trestles above Kelowna or along the Naramata Bench just outside Penticton. South of Penticton, Kruger often takes riders through Okanagan Falls or past Vaseux Lake to McIntyre Bluff. Tours can also be arranged along the scenic Black Sage Road opposite Oliver, where Burrowing Owl Estate Winery (which regularly hosts corporate retreats) is a favoured lunch stop. South of Oliver lies Osoyoos, sitting on the shores of Lake Osoyoos at the northern tip of the Sonoran desert. Rattlesnakes are native here, and the Nk’mip Desert Cultural Centre, run by the Osoyoos Indian Band, will bring guests of the 226-room Spirit Ridge Vineyard Resort & Spa face-to-face with the critters and many other desert denizens. Spirit Ridge, managed by Calgary-based Bellstar Hotels and Resorts Ltd., is adjacent to the 9,000-square-foot Nk’mip Conference Centre, the Okanagan’s largest conference facility south of Penticton. Rooftop terraces provide outdoor reception space, with breathtaking views. (For more on the Nk’mip Conference Centre and associated offerings, see page 19.) Major events, such as the Osoyoos Celebrity Wine Festival spearheaded by Glenn Fawcett of Black Hills Estate Winery, can take advantage of the 3,000 square feet of event space at Watermark Beach Resort as well as facilities at Walnut Beach Resort, which include the 1,800-square-foot Vista Conference Centre. Watermark can accommodate from 12 seated to 260 reception-style, with lodging facilities including 30 beachfront townhouses. The bar serves wines from Black Hills, Nk’Mip and other local producers. “It’s come of age,” Bellstar principal Jon Zwickel says of the Osoyoos conference market. “Now there are first-class facilities that can support larger groups and deliver all the state-of-the-art AV equipment that everyone’s become accustomed to in urban centres.” Ą Photos: (from top) Tourism BC/Don Weixl; Tourism Kamloops/Rocky Mountain Vacation; Tourism BC/Don Weixl

KOOTENAY ROCKIES

Four-season country Resort central in the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mountains

By Lorne Eckersley ith four nicely balanced seasons, the Kootenay Rockies offer countless year-round opportunities to combine work with play. Whether your conference or meeting is large or small, you can meet your needs at any number of venues throughout the region, invariably close to highly rated ski hills and world-class golf courses. Throw in a tempting mix of rivers, lakes, waterfalls, mineral hot springs, alpine meadows, snow-capped mountains and abundant wildlife, and the lure is obvious. Over the past decade, no community in the Kootenay Rockies has made a greater transition than Golden. The injection of investment capital to develop Kicking Horse Mountain Resort has spun off the expected economic developments. Explorer David Thompson, who visited the area 200 years ago, would have gazed in wonder.

KOOTENAY ROCKIES The Prestige Mountainside Resort Golden is home to many meetings and conferences. A professional meeting planner is on site to ensure that all goes smoothly in the Purcell Room, which can accommodate up to 100. To the south, another of the Mountainside Resort sisters, the Prestige Radium Hot Springs, is perfect for business functions, with the famous hot springs only minutes away. The Grand Ballroom can hold up to 250, the Columbia and Fernie rooms up to 125 each. Just up the hill from the hot springs is the Radium Hot Springs Lodge, a 66-room facility that also has meeting space for business events. In addition to the tempting hot springs, Radium offers easy access to the mighty Columbia River, which flows right by the village and which is bordered by North Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest continuous wetlands. In May of each year, birdwatchers gather from around the world for the Wings Over the Rockies bird festival. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, 15 golf courses are located within 45-minute drives. Development continues in Kimberley, home to great powder skiing and an annual accordion festival: a fitting event for a town centred around a Bavarian-style platzl. The 66-room Mountain Spirit Resort & Spa, which opened in June 2009, is located right beside the $6-million Kimberley Conference & Athlete Training Centre, now well under way with anticipated completion in November 2010. The centre will be the largest of its kind in the Kootenay Rockies, accommodating 350 banquet-style or 500 theatre-style. With a large pre-function area and four breakout rooms, the facility will enable organizations and businesses to host major conferences and seminars. (For more on the centre, see page 26.) Close to the 18th hole of the renowned Trickle Creek Golf Resort, the 4.5-star Trickle Creek Lodge can accommodate groups of more than 200 in the Stemwinder Restaurant and smaller numbers in other rooms. Over in Cranbrook, the Heritage Inn offers eight fully equipped rooms that can accommodate groups of up to 350. The inn provides convenient access to Fort Steele Heritage Town, the Canadian Museum of Rail Travel, the Kootenay Trout Hatchery and the Elizabeth Lake Sanctuary in Confederation Park.

It has 95 guestrooms and meeting space for up to 200 in a community that has become a year-round destination, with skiing at Fernie Alpine Resort, golfing at the Fernie Golf & Country Club and whitewater adventures on the Elk River. Take a drive downtown and spot the locations used in the John Cusack movie Hot Tub Time Machine. Creston has long been a destination for families stocking up on fruit during canning season.

of a referendum approved by voters – has locals and visitors buzzing about a stateof-the-art aquatic centre. The complex is a rare facility that houses swimming, curling and hockey facilities. It’s also the site of the area’s largest meeting room, the Creston Room, holding up to 450 and completely renovated. (Disclosure: the writer of this article served on the design team of the complex.) A drive of 130 kilometres west of Creston on Highway 3 brings travellers right through the city of Castlegar, where the Fireside Inn Hotel and Conference Centre has long been popular with event-planners. Conveniently close to the highway and downtown, the Fireside boasts an elegant 250-capacity Grand Ballroom that includes a stone fireplace, dance floor and oak bar. The room can be divided with a sliding wall to create more intimate spaces. Nestled between the Monashee and Selkirk mountain ranges, Rossland is another year-round destination, offering skiing, hiking, biking and fishing, all easily done from the Prestige Mountain Resort & Conference Centre Rossland as a base. The Ross Thompson Conference Hall, Grand Ballroom, Plewman Salon and Kirkup Salon provide flexibility in accommodating functions for up to 300 delegates. Up-to-date audiovisual and business services augment the centre’s ability to attract the most discerning. Ą Located beside the new Kimberley Conference & Athlete Training Centre, the Mountain Spirit Resort & Spa is a fourseason meeting spot

CARIBOO CHILCOTIN COAST

Roam on the range Keeping the great West alive

Fishing at dawn at Ten Mile Lake Provincial Park near Quesnel

Nestled in the Cariboo ranchlands, Echo Valley Ranch & Spa celebrates the romance of ranching life

By Lorne Eckersley ast your attention northward to the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast, and it’s easy to imagine residents offering a warm embrace. Northerners are justifiably proud of their communities and the vital contributions they make to the provincial economy. From Wells Gray Park on the eastern boundary to the coastal community of Bella Bella, and from Lilloet at the region’s southern tip to Quesnel, Wells and Barkerville, this vast area offers history, remarkable geographic diversity and a population passionately eager to share the northern experience. Where else can you find

ghost towns, ocean vistas and vast tracts of ranchland that much of the province’s cattle industry calls home? The region’s hub is 100 Mile House, so called because it’s 100 miles from Lillooet, the starting point of the Cariboo Wagon Road. From 1862 to 1870, more than 100,000 travelled this gold-rush trail in making their way northward. Today, several venues make the city ideal for conferences. Martin Exeter Hall, the primary room in the 100 Mile House Lodge Conference Centre, is a graciously appointed lecture and performance venue with open foyer and bench-style theatre seating for up to 275 facing a 478-square-foot stage.

Adjacent to the conference centre is the Red Coach Inn. With its 49 guestrooms, it accommodates groups of up to 100. The staff can also arrange to handle larger groups next door in Martin Exeter Hall. Southward, near Clinton in cattle country, Echo Valley Ranch & Spa offers more intimacy. Up to 100 participants can use the ranch’s meeting facilities, although only 40 can stay over. “A wilderness guest ranch offering 4.5star accommodations might seem like an anomaly, but at Echo Valley it’s the norm,” says proprietor Norm Dove. The facilities, which include a spa and a signature building that showcases Thai (yes, as in Thailand) architecture, are dotted around the ranch, providing a sense of expanse and privacy. Northward, Quesnel and Wells are experienced hosts for events of all types. With its 1930s architecture and design, the Wells Community Hall has a seating capacity for over 800, with guest accommodations close by. It combines numerous breakout rooms, a large professional stage, a full bar and a licensed kitchen. The Quesnel District Arts and Recreation Centre has numerous rooms available for meetings, banquets and other events. Its West Fraser Timber Room seats 236 theatre-style, 175 banquet-style. Guests will arrive smiling at the sight of the Billy Barker Casino Photos: Tourism BC/Albert Normandin

Hotel. Its architecture is modelled after the paddlewheelers that plied the Fraser River during the gold rush. The new Show Room, offering various entertainments, is also available for meetings, conferences and seminars. Williams Lake, known as the “stampede capital of B.C.,” is located in the heart of ranch country, halfway between Prince George and Kamloops. The Overlander Hotel features a convention centre with 220-person capacity. For an overview of Cariboo life, guests can visit the Tourism Discovery Centre, a striking log structure built by skilled local craftsmen. The 10-foot-diameter centre pole is estimated to be 745 years old. Nearer the Pacific coast, the Bella Coola Valley is a gem. Inhabited for 10,000 years by the Nuxalk people, it boasts a temperate climate in an area that encompasses the Coast Mountains, crystalline rivers and inland areas. The Bay Motor Hotel has 29 guestrooms and two meeting rooms, the largest of which can accommodate groups of up to 80. It also home to the friendly Bentinck Arms Pub. Iconic within the Bella Coola Valley is Tweedsmuir Park Lodge. The original lodge was built in 1929 and burned to the ground in 1950, only to be immediately rebuilt. The main lodge is a hub for 10 guest cabins and can accommodate meetings of up to 60. The gold rush includes many tales, including that of John Callbreath, a resident of Lilllooet who brought 23 camels there in 1862. Tender feet, bad tempers and foul odours quickly placed the animals in disfavour. The people, however, have remained, enjoying a temperate climate and rural ambience at Mile 0 of the Cariboo Wagon Road. Conveniently located downtown, Mile-0-Motel looks out to the rugged mountains and rolling hills surrounding the Fraser River. Its banquet hall and meeting room suit 75. Ą
