The new Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre is now open and the public are welcome to stop by and check it out all weekend. [CBC]
April 4th and 5th will be your chance to view this 473,532 square foot meeting and convention space that already has over 180 events booked straight through to 2018.
“…between 10am and 4pm on Saturday April 4 and Sunday April 5 for a behind the scenes look at Vancouverâ€™s newest addition to the waterfront. Be our guest and enjoy live family entertainment from around BC, learn about the bees living on our six-acre grass and wildflower roof, and enter to win a family picnic on the living roof, or an intimate dinner for two in our 6,000 person ballroom overlooking the Burrard Inlet.” [Open House]
I would suggest getting in and checking out this $883 million-dollar space while you can since in September it will be handed over to VANOC as the broadcast media centre for the 2010 Winter Games. I’ll try to swing by today to get some shots so we can compare them to John’s images (above).
Update: I did a quick photowalk with Kris yesterday, here are some captures:
Update: David Drucker went to the open house today, here are some of his photos of the interior.
