The Vancouver Convention Centre West is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a digital scavenger hunt and some awesome prizes.
10 Years of the Vancouver Convention Centre West
With the addition of the West building in 2009 that tripled the facility’s capacity, the Convention Centre has welcomed over 9 million guests from around the world and generated over $2.4 billion in direct spending for British Columbia over the past decade.
The 5,561 events hosted in 10 years range from major city-wide conventions, including the renowned TED Conference and SIGGRAPH computer graphics conference to consumer and trade shows, private meetings, banquets and fundraisers, community events, special events, public celebrations, and film and TV shoots.
British Columbians are invited to take on ‘Convention Quest’ before the deadline on Friday, August 9th and earn a chance at winning one of 10 outstanding prizes.
Celebrating a decade of incredible meetings and events, Convention Quest is a digital scavenger hunt tasking participants with tracking down 10 pieces of trivia about the Convention Centre’s West building.
The Grand Prize is a VIP Vancouver Convention Centre experience, including transportation and a one-night stay at a downtown Vancouver hotel, a private behind-the-scenes tour of the iconic West building, dinner at LOT185 Café + Wine Bar, and two tickets to see the Canada Men’s National Rugby Team vs the United States at BC Place on September 7, 2019.
The Silver Prize is two round-trip tickets for a V2V Vacations Vancouver to Victoria day trip (valid through October 31, 2019), and a one-night stay at a hotel in Victoria, BC. And the Bronze Prize is a pair of complimentary tickets to a consumer show or public event held at the Vancouver Convention Centre of their choice and gift card to LOT185 Café + Wine Bar.
