ASSOCIATION MESSAGES

ILEA CANADA | COLLABORATION OVER COMPETITION The goal is collaboration over competition. T h i s st rategy often gets lost in the event i ndustry as we bid aga i nst e a c h o t h e r fo r c o n t ra c t s , projects and events. What if instead of viewing those we compete against as competitors, we shift our outlook to them being colleagues and mentors? This is the International Live

Events Association (ILEA), and it is home to thousands of competitor event professionals across the globe and many in our home of Vancouver. We curate opportunities to learn from each other and discover what makes us different when at a glance we appear so similar. T h is has the power to strengthen brands and persona l a nd professiona l development a nd u n ite ou r industry. In Vancouver, ILEA

collaborates with our comp e t i to rs t h e P rofe s s io n a l Convention Management Association and Meeting Professionals International (MPI) on multiple events in the year and has partnered with MPI in an online education initiative. These collaborations greatly impact what our association brings to its members while still allowing us to position our monthly curriculum on brand with who ILEA is. This yea r ou r la ndscape ra nges

from design labs and cocktail socials to panels on cannabis, security and human trafficking in our industry. We are a passionate, committed community of event creatives, planners and vendors working to improve our industry and bring value, substance and fun to our members. Shannon Boudreau, president, Vancouver chapter, International Live Events Association

MPI B.C. | WHEN WE MEET, WE CHANGE THE WORLD “When we meet, we change the world” is the global message and brand promise of Meeting Professiona ls Internationa l (MPI) . T his recognizes that as an events industry association we understand that event experiences must reflect the most current standards and trends for event design elements such as accessibility and inclusion, corporate social responsibility and sustainability practices, latest

technology, culinary and marketing and promotional tactics. As leaders in a global industry, we believe in best practices and we are constantly re-evaluating how we can create better events to ensure that the attendee experience is unforgettable (in a good way). MPI works both globally and locally to provide our members with networking opportunities, career-enhancing education and opportunities to grow as leaders. The board of directors for the MPI B.C. chapter is made up of both seasoned professionals and

rising stars that are ready to deliver on our promise of valuable member engagement. Each year we deliver education and special events designed with the attendee experience and event sponsor return on investment at the forefront. Our collaborative processes enable a customized approach that ensures value to all of our stakeholders: planner members, supplier members, student members, faculty, partners and sponsors. We are also proud to continue ou r col l ab orat ion w it h t he

00_MPBC 2020.indd 11

b e t w e e n d e a d l i n e s , b u s iness trips and back-to-back events, let’s always remind ourselves of the importance of recharging. Recharging is not just about going on vacation. Listen to a short meditation session in the morning; take a five-to10-minute walk after lunch; unplug a few minutes in the evening. Recharging is about

building daily habits that can help us retain energy, calm and motivation. Recha rg i ng is a lso about spending time to learn new things. T he business event industry changes dramatically almost daily, and it is a constant struggle for event professions to keep up with the latest trends or threats. Professional associations like

PCMA are here to assist you with that. Make a commitment this year to build a new habit of attending at least one local event, to connect with your colleagues and community. I’ll see you at the next event. Shawn Cheng, president, Canada West chapter Professional Convention Management Association

REVVING TO 100 Celebrating the centennial of the Vancouver International Auto Show FRANK O’BRIEN

T

he 2020 Vancouver International Auto Show, scheduled for March 25-29 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West, will be a very special occasion as the New Car Dealers Association of BC and its members mark the 100th anniversary of Western Canada’s best-attended trade and consumer event, which is expected to draw in excess of 115,000 visitors this year. Included in the centennial celebration will be a special procession of vehicles, representing each decade of the show’s existence, winding its way through the streets of Vancouver and ending at the Vancouver Convention Centre West to officially open the show. The auto show has invited many icons in the global automotive sector to elevate the experience. The honorary 100th auto show chairman and grand marshall of the procession will be none other than Jim Pattison, one of the most impactful contributors to Canada’s auto sector. Other highlights will include a concourse-style invitational showcase that will include more than 60 unique and exotic vehicles, some never previously displayed. A “Look to the Future” display will profile emerging and advanced auto technology options. Of course organizers are working to ensure there will be additional surprises to catch the eyes of auto lovers. Over the years the Vancouver International Auto Show has become a staple of the automobile

00_MPBC 2020.indd 12

industry and a signature event in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. Since 1920, when it all started in the barns at the Pacific National Exhibition fairgrounds, car and truck lovers have gathered en masse to view the latest models, concept vehicles and supercars, while also travelling down memory lane to revisit vehicles of the past. An increasingly popular feature at the auto show is the expanded electric vehicle ride and drive event, presented by CleanBC – Go Electric, and a variety of alternative-powered vehicles represented on the show floor – from electric, hybrid and hydrogen-fuel cell to gas, diesel and propanepowered vehicles. The auto show remains an important part of the automobile shopping experience, according to Foresight Research. While data specific to Canadian auto shows is not available, Foresight measured 57 auto shows in 50 markets in the U.S. What it found was that nearly two out of three attendees surveyed were in the market to purchase

in the next year; they spend an average of 3.5 hours at the event; and during that period their brand opinion will be refined and in some cases finalized. By attracting more than 115,000 attendees each year, the Vancouver auto show is an ideal platform to connect participants and sponsoring organizations to a proven audience interested in new vehicles. For members of the business community who have to balance hectic schedules, consider attending this special event during non-peak periods, such as the noon hour or during the course of the workday, if possible. These periods typically don’t have the same level of foot traffic the show experiences when the evening and weekend rush hits full stride.

00_MPBC 2020.indd 13

This is a historic anniversary and one that deserves considerable celebration, not only for the event itself, but for the 10 decades of positive economic and social contribution the auto sector has made throughout the province. The show is owned and operated by the New Car Dealers Association of BC, which represents more than 390 new car and truck franchised auto retailers from across B.C., who generate over $16 billion in retail sales and contribute $2.9 billion annually in GDP to B.C.’s economy. Circle your calendar and plan to visit the auto show March 2529, 2020, for what should be a memorable and historic occasion. For more information, visit: vancouverinternationalautoshow. com. É

HOTELS ON THE HORIZON Vancouver’s hotel shortage is pressing but developers see opportunity in a city with Canada’s highest room rates and a near 90 per cent occupancy GLEN KORSTROM AND FRANK O’BRIEN

W

ith more than six million visitors arriving in Vancouver every year, the number of hotel rooms is not keeping up, tourism officials warn.

Five new hotels are on the horizon, but they are mostly boutique buildings and only one is expected to open this year, a 66-room, three-storey project being developed in a mixed-use development on Denman Street by digital hotel operator Sonder. All together, the new Vancouver hotels will total 550 rooms. But City of Vancouver statistics show that, as of mid-2018, the city had 13,925 hotel rooms, or 1,105 fewer units than it did a decade ago. Those lost rooms include the 626 suites in the former Empire Landmark and Coast Plaza Stanley Park hotels, which both closed in recent years. The 372-room Four Seasons Hotel will close at the end of January 2020 and no new hotel will take that prime downtown space on West Georgia Street. Tourism Vancouver CEO Ty Speer acknowledges that the lack of hotel rooms is pushing up rates, but stops short of suggesting that higher prices will diminish the tourist experience. “A huge percentage of our visitors, especially those coming from offshore, are not coming here for the second time and necessarily saying, ‘I stayed at this hotel last time and I paid X, and now I’m coming and staying in the hotel and I paid Y,’” Speer says. “I don’t think that’s terribly common.” But new visitors, especially from other Canadian cities, may experience some sticker shock at the check-in counter, says Carrie Russell, senior managing partner of industry consultancy HVS International. Vancouver has the highest hotel room rates in the country at an average of $276.09 per night, she notes, up 11 per cent from a year ago. This compares with Calgary, at $150.12, Toronto at $210.27 and a Canadian

00_MPBC 2020.indd 14

average hotel rate of $181.19. Vancouver hotels also boast the highest occupancy rates in Canada, with 89.8 per cent of all rooms booked during the first half of z2019. “Vancouver hotel space is fundamentally maxed out,” Russell says. While Russell agrees that Vancouver remains a premier tourist and conference destination, she says bus tours and other budget-conscious visitors may opt for suburban accommodation in the Fraser Valley,

Burnaby and Coquitlam. Hotel developers wanting in to Vancouver, however, must compete for land against residential, office and retail proposals, which has driven prices sky high. Executive Group Development, for example, paid $19 million in 2017 for a 6,245-square-foot site on West Pender Street that it is developing into a 106room hotel expected to open in 2021 or early 2022. Other hotels in Vancouver’s pipeline include an 86-room hotel being built by Amacon at 150 Robson Street as part of a mixed-use development; and the 175-room Emily Hotel that Onni is developing on East 1st Avenue close to the new Emily Carr University of Art & Design.

Sonder also plans to partner with Vancouver developer Coromandel Properties to lease five floors of the historic Arts and Crafts Building at 576 Seymour Street after renovations are complete. That 36-unit hotel will be based on the upper four floors of the six-storey building with Sonder’s regional head office and a lounge on the second floor. Sonder is not your conventional hotel operator, however. The company launched in Montreal in 2012 as a short-term rental company similar to Airbnb. It has since morphed its business model to be a digital hotel, which means that all guests book rooms online and the lion’s share of interactions with hotel staff, such as ordering towels, are made through a smartphone app. É

Famous B.C. tourist destinations transform into unique destinations for never-to-be-forgotten meetings

GLEN KORSTROM

O

ne of the more risqué events last year at the Vancouver Aquarium was part of Pride week. The event, called After Hours, paraded drag performances as well as “animal sex talks,” where aquarium representatives discussed marine animals’ reproductive strategies. The event was clearly not a corporate retreat but it shows the versatility of events possible at the aquarium – a venue that has been rapidly increasing the number of corporate events it hosts each year. The aquarium has 185,151 square feet of space. That is big enough to accommodate up to 2,000 people when all of it is being used, says the aquarium’s events manager, Riddhima Aari. She notes the facility hosted about 200 events last year, up from 180 in 2018. Many of them were corporate retreats, cocktail parties or networking socials aimed at providing a more memorable and engaging venue than a traditional hotel ballroom. The aquarium adds an element of intrigue and enables guests to not only mingle, but also admire sea lions or jellyfish after hours, when the facility is closed to the public. Not all Metro Vancouver tourist attractions seek out the after-hours event business. Capilano Suspension Bridge Park communications manager Stacy Chala says her facility never closes public access to host large-scale meetings, but “we do host smaller or afterhour events in our Cliff House Restaurant and Bar, based on availability.” Others, however, see value in providing innovative spaces for short-term rentals. Science World at Telus World of Science, for example, has more than 74,000 square feet of space to potentially rent out. The Vancouver Art Gallery (VAG) has been increasing the number of events that it hosts and expects to have about 100 this year, up from 88 last year. “Our [events] business is steady year-round,” says the gallery’s events manager, Samantha Brett. While the aquarium has rules for corporate guests that are intended to protect marine life – such as that no music can be louder than 85 decibels – the art gallery has no such

00_MPBC 2020.indd 16

restrictions. Having a machine spew dry ice, however, or doing something to alter humidity levels, would likely be frowned upon, because it could damage the art. One perk for visitors who attend corporate events at VAG spaces, such as a room with a balcony that overlooks Robson Square, is they can linger through the gallery after the event is over, appreciating art without throngs of visitors competing for space. “Event rentals are designed to be turnkey, meaning the cost includes security, coat check, basic audiovisual equipment and technician support as well as an event liaison,” Brett says. The iconic white building next to Vancouver’s Vanier Park houses two other venues corporate event planners may consider: the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre and the Museum of Vancouver (MOV). Both organizations offer inside and outside space for corporate events. The space centre, which some fondly refer to as the Planetarium, has an iconic 230-seat star theatre that in years past was best known for Pink Floyd laser light shows. Executive director Raylene Marchand says this 360-degree theatre is the largest of her venue’s facilities and that it has a stage for bands or speakers. A second theatre holds 209 people, and there is also gallery space for about 200 people. The MOV offers a range of exhibits that change frequently, according to its director of visitor experience, Greg Fruno, who adds the displays provide an historical perspective. “We have classics, such as our 1950s gallery with diner artifacts and a functioning jukebox; our Neon gallery with beloved large-scale signs from Vancouver’s past; temporary exhibitions that have ranged in theme in the past couple of years from Expo 86 to local photography, to art pieces that only can be found in the MOV collection, to Vancouver’s local animal and plant life.” É

POD HOTELS SQUEEZE IN

From Whistler to Richmond, small spaces are attracting big attention from cost-conscious travellers

CHUCK CHIANG

A

t least two pod hotels – or hostels – have emerged in southwestern B.C. in less than a year, and some hotel industry observers say it could mark the start of similar establishments going mainstream in Western Canada.

The latest such establishment to enter the B.C. market is Panda Pod, a 64-pod hotel that opened last May in Richmond. Pod hotels are overnight accommodations with capsule-like tiny rooms built around a single bed. Panda Pod general manager Sharon Cheung says the hotel’s proximity to Vancouver International Airport, and the region’s high hotel room rates, played into the company’s reasoning for entering the market. “The passenger count at Vancouver International Airport has broken through 24 million per year due to the increasing number of new airlines and new flights to and from Asia, as

00_MPBC 2020.indd 18

well as U.S.,” Cheung says. “We can see the growing needs in accommodations for worldwide travellers…. We would like to offer a more economical accommodation alternative for the travellers with budget concerns.” Panda Pod was offering a $49-per-night rate during its opening. Pod hotels first took off in Japan, which in 2016 was home to 78 per cent of the world’s pod hotels. Analysts say the next big markets are likely to be China and Southeast Asia, where land costs and population densities are similar to Japan’s. But one observer says North America may be

ripe for a pod-hotel boom in select urban environments. Michael Coletta, New York-based manager of research and innovation for travel industry research firm Phocuswright, says competitors have popped up in the last few years in Manhattan, San Francisco and Boston. Their rise has been fuelled by low rates and the minimalist living trend. But he added that pod hotels also have to make sense economically to their owners and to consumers, and in both cases the hotels’ limited need for land and space could mean big margins for hoteliers running them, even at room rates that can be more than 50 per cent less than at conventional hotels. “It seems to be taking off in North America already, probably more than what people realize,” Coletta says. “It makes sense in urban areas, as it does in Japan, being able to book a clean room at a cheaper price point.” Russell Kling co-founded Whistler’s Pangea Pod Hotel in the summer of 2018. The hotel’s business has ebbed and flowed with the ski resort’s tourist seasons, but Kling says Pangea was above 90 per cent booked for a significant portion of the winter ski season and many days were sold out at the 88-unit hotel. Kling says Pangea is already planning a second location in B.C. while the company contemplates markets elsewhere in North America. He adds that pod hotels in North America can’t simply copy and paste the business model from Japan. “In the Japanese pod model, I would bet you the average stay is one day,” Kling says. “There are very few people who stay multiple nights. Here in Whistler, our average is several nights; in the winter, it’s close to a week. So when you think about the market and what is needed … it is a different target market.

Russell Kling co-founded

Whistler’s Pangea Pod Hotel in the summer of 2018 as the first pod hostel in Western Canada. Kling says Pangea is more than 90 per cent booked for most of the winter ski

“What you see at the airports can be more similar to the Japanese model, but it’s a very different business to when you want to visit a town. So we’ve slid a little more toward traditional hotels in some areas.” That’s why Pangea offers amenities like double beds in every pod, high-quality linens and artwork to present a “livable” high-end accommodation. The hotel separates its bathrooms into more than 60 components to accommodate the 88 rooms so that no one has to wait in line as they do at a typical sharedspace accommodation. Kling says that while he launched the Pangea Pod concept after falling in love with hostels, he knew the idea needed to evolve for Whistler. “‘Hostel’ is a dirty word to some people, which we think is laughable,” he says. “There’s a social element that we want to embrace. But at the same time, we want key elements of privacy and high-end design. So I would say our target client is someone who stayed at hostels 10 years ago, people who are young professionals who have graduated from hostels and have disposable income, and they want somewhere nice but where they can also meet others in a cool environment.” É

MEETING PLACES AT A GLANCE HOW TO USE MEETING PLACES’ REGION-BY-REGION DIRECTORIES OF VENUES AND SERVICES MEETING PLACES AT A GLANCE Q If you’re looking for details of specific venues, start with “Meeting places at a glance,” below. First check the British Columbia map on page 20 to confirm which region your event is in, then browse the listings under that region.

Welcome to the meeting planners’ resource section of Meeting Places, including directories of all the resources you’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 20 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 you’ll need wherever you are holding your event.

GREEN, PEACE AND THE COAST

Vancouver coast and mountain region is among world’s top green destinations and venues range from the sophisticated to the spiritual

FRANK O’BRIEN

onely Planet has selected Vancouver as among the top 10 cities in the world to visit for those with sustainability and green features top of mind.

Vancouver ranked No. 8, with the report authors noting that the city is a natural playground, “squeezed majestically between the blue waters of the Pacific and the forest-clad mountaintops of the North Shore.” Vancouver is the birthplace of Greenpeace and therefore was a natural selection for a list focused on sustainable places to visit. As well, the city is focused on being the “greenest city in Canada” and many of its top conference venues, such as the green-roofed Vancouver Convention Centre, are considered among the most sustainable buildings on the planet.

00_MPBC 2020.indd 33

Vancouver was also named the fifth most beautiful city in the world last year by FlightNetwork in a survey of more than 1,000 travel writers and agencies. The city has actually won a suitcase full of global awards in recent years, including being named among the top five cities in Canada by Travel + Leisure in 2019; TripAdvisor’s 2019 Travelers’ Choice Award; and the best destination in Canada by Travel Weekly’s Readers Choice Awards in 2018. Also, Vancouver International Airport has been named the best airport in North America for the last 10 years in a row.

Such credits help to draw about 10.3 million visitors to Vancouver every year. Aside from Canada, most visitors arrive from the U.S., China, Australia and the United Kingdom, according to Tourism Vancouver. It also helps explain why half of B.C.’s tourismrelated businesses are located in the Vancouver Coast and Mountains region. For those meeting in Vancouver, Tourism Vancouver has prepared a list of the top five free things to do in the city: (1) visit the many Vancouver beaches that present views of mountains, the downtown skyline and forests, all free of charge. For the daring, strip down to your birthday suit and visit Vancouver’s official nude beach, Wreck Beach, below the University of B.C.; (2) visit Granville Island, the heart of the city’s fresh food, arts and crafts community; (3) tour Stanley Park, the 1,000-acre green oasis near downtown; (4) visit the Christ Church Cathedral, the iconic Class A heritage church with Douglas fir ceiling beams; (5) or get in a car and take a drive up the Sea-to-Sky Highway to Whistler, the top ski resort in Canada.

WHISTLER CONFERENCE-READY

Whistler is an international resort destination, so fallout from Brexit and the U.S.-China trade war dented visitor numbers last year, but Tourism Whistler continues to see strong demand from two other key markets, notes Karen Goodwin, Tourism Whistler’s vice-president of destination and market development. These are Canada’s two southern neighbours. “Mexico, they book a little bit later, but the indications from our partners is that there is lots of demand and interest in Whistler. And we’re still seeing strength out of the U.S.,” she says. Whistler has made a strong push in recent years to drive conference business. And the resort community is preparing for that with a $3.5 million upgrade to its landmark Whistler Conference Centre, which will be complete by March 2020. The renovation will include design and technical upgrades, such as new lighting, acoustical treatments, floor and wall coverings, furnishings and artwork. “We know that having a beautiful, contemporary and functional facility that suits a variety of conference and event needs will inspire meeting planners to book their event in Whistler and will help the resort remain competitive as a meetings destination,” Goodwin says. “High season for group and conference business is the spring and fall, so there is great alignment between Whistler’s high season and when these groups want to meet,” says Goodwin, adding that group business makes up 30 per cent of Whistler’s total room nights during the spring, summer and fall. “We are seeing increases in the shoulders, so November and early December, and then in April, it was stronger than it was last year. So it’s actually coming at a good time,” she says.

SUNSHINE COAST RETREATS

One of the great day escapes in the Lower Mainland is the 35-minute ride on BC Ferries from West Vancouver to the Sunshine Coast, where corporate and spiritual retreats are woven into the fabric of this unique community. The 84-kilometre-long coast peninsula boasts outstanding meeting venues, including the Rockwater Secret Cove Resort, the five-acre Painted Boat Resort Spa & Marina and the spectacular West Coast Wilderness Lodge at Egmont that provides team-building events and guided boat tours of Princess Louisa Inlet. For a corporate mindfulness retreat, the Pacific Peace Retreat near Sechelt offers meditation, yoga, mindset coaching and hypnotherapy. Mindfulness, says owner Cynthia Miller, is “about being in the present and seeing opportunity instead of a challenge, being expansive instead of limiting.” It sounds like sound advice, and another good reason to consider the Vancouver coast and mountains for personal or corporate meetings. É Cynthia Miller, owner, Pacific Peace Retreat on the Sunshine Coast: mindfulness is “about being in the present and seeing opportunity instead of a challenge, being expansive instead of limiting” •

VANCOUVER ISLAND & GULF ISLANDS

RETREAT TO AN ISLAND Vancouver Island meetings are a world apart

The Bengal Room at the Fairmont Empress recalls when Victoria was empress of India • SUBMITTED

PETER MITHAM

J

ust minutes from downtown Vancouver by float plane but a world apart from urban concerns, Vancouver Island is the perfect setting for group getaways both large and small.

Whether it’s an industry gathering, corporate retreat, wedding or reunion, the Island’s lush valleys facing the Salish Sea – also known as the Strait of Georgia – and rugged west coast provide spectacular backdrops. Set apart from the mainland, the province’s capital is the perfect getaway for groups from both Canada and the U.S., which is linked with the city by ferry. Conference space is crowned by the Victoria Conference Centre, the second-largest meeting place in the province. Situated downtown just steps from the Inner Harbour, it offers 50,000 square feet of event space as well as 23,000 square feet at the Crystal Garden pavilion across the street.

00_MPBC 2020.indd 47

Recent years have seen a wave of fresh investment in local hotels, including the recently renovated 464-room Fairmont Empress adjoining the city’s conference centre. The hotel offers 23,000 square feet of its own function space, giving groups access to 96,000 square feet of space across the three venues. Meanwhile, the 304-room Hotel Grand Pacific adjacent to the city’s iconic legislature building has two ballrooms totalling 5,500 square feet as well as five breakout rooms averaging 500 square feet each. Just north of Victoria, the Westin Bear Mountain Golf Resort and Spa offers more than 5,600 square feet of space including a ballroom accommodating receptions of up to 750 people and

three breakout options for groups of 12 to 288 people. Nanaimo offers the largest conference space north of Victoria, with the Vancouver Island Conference Centre boasting 38,000 square feet of event and meeting space accommodating 1,300 people in its ballroom. Smaller venues in Nanaimo include the Coast Bastion Hotel on the waterfront and the Grand Hotel Nanaimo north of downtown. Both properties can accommodate groups of up to 400 people in their ballrooms and boardrooms. North of Nanaimo, Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort & Conference Centre in Parksville offers 10,000 square feet across 12 rooms for groups of up to 350 people. The mid-Island region is also home to the Crown Isle Resort in Courtenay and Shelter Point Distillery in Oyster River, which have distinctive spaces for receptions of 40 to 80 people. Port Alberni is home to Cedar Wood Lodge, which can handle groups of 22 in its boardroom. Community halls and rural properties are also distinctive event venues. Blue Grouse Estate Winery in the Cowichan Valley regularly welcomes meetings of up to 20 people in a mezzanine overlooking its vineyard, while receptions and long-table dinners for up to 100 people can be held on its patio. Meanwhile, the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit in Duncan offers a 15,000-square-foot clubhouse and 2.3-kilometre track that will have corporate groups raring to go. Operated by GAIN Dealer Group, which also supplies the latest imported cars for driving, it’s affiliated with the exclusive, 38-room Villa Eyrie Resort atop the Malahat.

First Nations heritage is also a significant element in local event space. Painter’s Lodge Resort in Campbell River, open from May to October, offers 3,000 square feet of event space capable of hosting up to 200 people. Grizzly bear viewing in co-operation with the Homalco First Nation adds a wild touch to even the tamest gathering. Farther north, the Gwa’sala ’Nakwaxda’xw operate the 85-room Kwa’lilas Hotel in Port Hardy with 5,291 square feet of meeting space in six rooms. Up to 150 people can sit in the ballroom, which has a standing capacity of 210. On the remote west coast of Vancouver Island, natural features such as Clayoquot Sound and spectacular winter storms provide a stunning backdrop for venues such as Ucluelet’s Black Rock Oceanfront Resort, which can accommodate groups of up to 140, as well as a community centre hosting gatherings of up to 200 people. Tofino’s Best Western Tin Wis offers 4,000 square feet of meeting space for up to 250 guests, and is among the many spaces offered by well-known national hoteliers across the Island. É

The 10-day event will be held May 22-31 at Kelowna’s 6,000seat Prospera Place arena but it is expected that an overflow viewing area with big-screen TVs will be needed to handle all those clamouring for tickets. Kelowna’s own Western Hockey League team the Kelowna Rockets is the host for the tournament and is one of the four teams entered.

MEETING PLACES BRITISH COLUMBIA 2020 PUBLISHED BY BUSINESS IN VANCOUVER

KOOTENAY ROCKIES

RUGGED BEAUTY

Southeastern B.C. combines breathtaking vistas and a rich variety of venues

PETER MITHAM

ritish Columbia’s Kootenay Rockies may be the province’s best-kept secret when it comes to meeting places.

With spectacular alpine vistas and roads through some of the province’s highest mountain passes, the region maintains a distinct local identity. Situated east of the Okanagan and straddling the Continental Divide, the Kootenay Rockies makes up for a lack of bigcity pretensions with small-town charm. The popular St. Eugene Golf Resort and Casino, run by the Ktunaxa people, recently saw its 4,000 square feet of meeting space and 125

00_MPBC 2020.indd 60

rooms refurbished. It has also launched programs to help corporate groups engage with Indigenous culture as part of its ongoing work to foster reconciliation in what was formerly a residential school. The distinctive peak of Mount Fisher dominates the skyline from here to Kimberley, an alpine village home to the seven-year-old Kimberley Conference and Athlete Training Centre. The largest meeting place in the East

The Kimberley Conference and Athlete Training Centre is a striking venue that can host groups of up to 500 people • PETER MITHAM

A new Sutton Place Hotel with expanded conference facilities is the latest addition to Revelstoke Mountain Resort • SUBMITTED

Kootenays, its main ballroom is built into the hillside. It seats up to 500 people while four breakout rooms host smaller groups for seminars and discussions. Kimberley is also home to Kimberley Alpine Resort, part of the so-called Powder Highway that connects eight ski hills throughout the region, from Golden to Rossland. Groups that want to combine power meetings with skiing or team-building on the slopes will find plenty of options. Among the newest venues is the expanded Sutton Place Hotel in Revelstoke with 10,000 square feet of meeting space, up from a current capacity of just 40 people. It eclipses the city’s largest existing facility, Revelstoke Mountain Resort, which offers 5,000 square feet of meeting space. Smaller venues include the stylish Stoke Hotel, which reinvents an older property on the edge of downtown. Also new to the region is the Josie Hotel at Red Mountain Resort in Rossland. The Josie includes a 1,500-square-foot indoor ballroom seating 88 as well as a 2,500-square-foot outdoor terrace seating 112. This complements the three rooms ranging from 1,200 square feet to 3,000 square feet in the resort’s day lodge, and its expanded 4,500-square-foot deck. The old favourites haven’t lost their appeal, either, with Panorama Mountain Resort offering spaces from 14-person boardrooms to 500-person tents for corporate events and weddings. The easternmost stop on the Powder Highway is Fernie Alpine Resort, which together with Fernie Golf & Country Club offers meeting space for guests just three hours from Calgary. The historic downtown abounds with attractions, while the surrounding slopes provide opportunities for hiking, biking and, of course, skiing. Fairmont Hot Springs is home to the largest hot spring in

00_MPBC 2020.indd 61

Canada and a namesake resort offering 10,750 square feet of meeting space accommodating up to 300 people. Meanwhile, Radium Hot Springs to the north can accommodate conferences and banquets for up to 150 people at Bighorn Meadows Resort. Between the two lies Columbia Valley Centre in Invermere, a 17,000-square-foot facility with a 7,000-square-foot hall that can be configured five ways. It’s capable of hosting 500-person banquets among other events. Those seeking a reflective getaway will find it at the Sentinel, a wellness retreat centre that bills itself as “a mindful world beyond conventions.” Yasodhara Ashram, a yoga retreat and study centre near Crawford Bay, is another getaway that allows groups to tune out the noise and tune into nature. Groups with a penchant for up-close-and-personal experiences with the natural world will enjoy Northern Lights Wildlife Wolf Centre near Golden, where guided groups of four can walk the wilds with a timber wolf. A herd of bison and rustic accommodation for small groups can be found nearby at Rocky Mountain Buffalo Ranch. Selkirk College and the Kootenay School of the Arts in Nelson has a residence and conference facilities for up to 400 people. A short distance away in the city’s historic downtown, the recently renovated Capitol and Civic theatres offer reception space for 400 and 300 people, respectively. The region also boasts countless community halls and arenas. Elkford Community Conference Centre can host groups of up to 300, while the Castlegar and District Community Complex seats 500. Trail is home to the Cominco Gymnasium, which can accom-modate up to 1,000 people for meetings, as well as the 2,500-seat Cominco Arena. É

CARIBOO CHILCOTIN COAST

CONNECT IN THE CARIBOO

Horses, grizzlies, wilderness – and unique venues – wow visitors to the wonderfully wild Cariboo Chilcotin Coast FRANK O’BRIEN

F

rom the wild Pacific shores at Bella Bella to the rodeo at Williams Lake and the immersive history of gold-rush-era Barkerville, no other region in B.C. captures the past and present of British Columbia like the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast. The size of Scotland, the 80,000-square-kilometre Cariboo region has an impressive selection of outstanding meeting places for every event, be it a corporate retreat, a team-building challenge or an intimate gathering. From five-star dude ranches to (safe) viewing of grizzly bears plucking salmon from remote coastal rivers, the Cariboo

An ultimate re-creation, gold rush-era Barkerville is a must-see in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast. Accommodation and meetings are available and, yes, even with Wi-Fi • TYLER CAVE

biomass density on the planet – all of this is possible here like nowhere else in the world. The following is a partial list of where you can stay, meditate and meet in the historic Cariboo region. The historic Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, set on 60 acres of private land within the vast wilderness of British Columbia’s largest provincial park and the Great Bear Rainforest, is the ideal setting for wilderness adventures. Originally built in 1929 as a hunting and fishing resort, today the lodge accommodates those seeking out a more ecofriendly adventure as well as a relaxing refuge from the pressures of modern life. There are a total of 10 guest chalets, all with air conditioning, that can accommodate up to four people per chalet. All of the chalets are built surrounding a giant central lawn and have excellent views. In addition to the main lodge and chalets there is also a 1,200-square-foot spa building with a yoga stretching room, weights, massage rooms, showers and a 12-person covered outdoor hot tub overlooking the Coast Range beyond. Spirit Bear Lodge is Indigenous owned, offering exclusive access to wildlife viewing areas and cultural sites within the Kitasoo/Xai’xais traditional territory at Klemtu. Wildlife tours run from October to May and the lodge is available year-round for corporate and private retreats. The lodge includes 12 rooms for up to 24 people. The Homathko River Inn is a 167-acre working horse ranch east of Williams Lake towards Bella Coola, offering an experience with horseback trail rides. The on-site Wagon Wheel restaurant is famous for its all-you-can-eat meals and Sunday

brunches. Visits can be booked hourly, daily or weekly. For those seeking creature comforts, the fivestar Siwash Lake Wilderness Resort near 70 Mile House is an excellent choice. Siwash is a small, all-inclusive luxury wilderness resort and familyowned dude ranch where horses, adventure and ecology entwine. Siwash Lake eco-adventures are among Canada’s finest outdoor vacations, recognized globally for almost two decades by National Geographic. Up to 15 guests can be accommodated in private suites. A recent treat is the ultra-private glamping experience in a pioneer-style luxury tent. Sleeping beneath the stars in one of these custom canvas canopies is an adventure in itself. Eagle’s Nest Resort is situated on a 10-acre property just off Highway 20 in the west Chilcotin. Choose an elegant suite or cosy log cabin, enjoy delightful meals in the lakeside dining room, experience breathtaking views, exceptional hiking and birdwatching and the natural beauty of the area. The Historic Chilcotin Lodge is located at Riske Creek on the Chilcotin Plateau near the Junction Sheep Range park that contains a large herd of Bighorn sheep. After a day horseback riding, viewing wildlife or exploring the rugged Chilcotin country, enjoy a gourmet meal in the fine dining room. Located in the South Cariboo region, the parklike wilderness retreat of Ruth Lake Lodge has been hosting guests since the late 1940s. The 37-acre property offers many groomed trails and access to Crown land for hiking, mountain biking or horseback riding. A 17-acre fenced pasture is available for guests travelling with horses.

his January the B.C. Natural Resources Forum will draw an estimated 1,000 delegates to the Prince George Conference and Civic Centre.

A total of 60,000 visitors is expected in March for the 2020 World Women’s Curling Championship. Sandwiched between is April’s BC Council of Forest Industries conference that will draw at least 400 delegates. Fortunately, the self-styled capital city of Northern B.C. should have no problem handling all these visitors. Prince George, the biggest city in northern B.C. with a population of approximately 80,000, has 2,364 hotel rooms and is adding more this year, says Shirley Prokopchuk, manager of meetings and conventions with Tourism Prince George. The past two years have seen the opening of the Courtyard by Marriott, the Pomeroy Inn & Suites and the Best Western Plus. A new 95-room Hyatt Place hotel opens May 2020 right downtown, she notes. The city has total meeting space covering more than 92,200 square feet (that is about two acres under roof) and this does not include the University of Northern British Columbia campus that alone has 75,523 square feet of meeting and event space overlooking the city. The Prince George Conference and Civic Centre, which appears booked with events through most of this year, boasts 42,000 square feet of flexible meeting space and the type of high-performance equipment and service that would make any city proud. For example, floating walls allow meeting rooms to be expanded for large events or made smaller for more intimate meetings. It can easily accommodate more than 1,000 guests. The busy meeting schedule is a signal that the north is emerging as an economic power base in B.C. This year, in fact, signals the true start of the $40 billion LNG Canada liquefied natural gas(LNG) pipeline and export terminal project, the largest private resource project in Canadian history. Much of the groundwork will be done outside of Prince George, with more than 600 kilometres of pipeline being laid to link the massive gas fields near Dawson Creek and Fort St. John with the LNG shipping terminal at Kitimat. Thousands of hard-hat workers, engineers and scientists are already arriving, which explains the hotel construction being seen right across the north. In Fort St. John at least 200 hotel rooms have completed in the past two years. The city’s excellent conference and event venues include the Pomeroy Hotel & Conference Centre. With meeting, conference and corporate facilities for up to 500 guests, the Pomeroy also has more than 11,500 square feet of flexible conference space. In Dawson Creek, the Encana Events Centre can host conference events to rock shows in a 6,500-seat auditorium. In Terrace, the popular 58-room Inn of the West on the Skeena River is seeing more competition. The Comfort Inn

and Sunshine Inn, both with approximately 100 rooms, have been built, joining 10 other hotels or motels in the city. Kitimat and Prince Rupert on the northwest coast offer a variety of accommodations, including Prince Rupert’s Crest Hotel, with more than 4,000 square feet of meeting space overlooking the harbour, and its Highliner Plaza Hotel and Conference Centre. For a true northern experience, consider the Haida-owned 12-suite Ocean Hous, a luxury fly-in wilderness retreat off the coast of Haida Gwaii in the waters of Stads K’uns GawGa (Peel Inlet). É
