British Columbia Meeting & Event Planning City Guide

Many who put together British Columbia meeting and event programs do not venture beyond Vancouver, and for good reason: this Western Canadian metropolis has easy air access, formidable meeting space, dining and accommodations – plus proximity to beautiful Vancouver Island. When planning British Columbia meeting and event programs, however, planners should also consider visiting the Kelowna wine region Kamloops (a scenic train ride from Vancouver), heli-skiing in Whistler and more.
