A great place for a convention, I'm sure, but I expected there to be more to do inside. Excellent views of everywhere from there. The sails light up at night.

This is a magnificent building. Was an Elders Convention there when we visited. Got to meet and speak with many Native Americans and browsed their market for some great souvenirs'

Attended an event with 8000 participants and the venue was great - clean rooms and bathrooms (no small feat for this number of people), wide variety of hot lunches and break choices, well-organised coffee breaks. Centrally located, views breathtaking. If I was organising an event...More

The 2010 Olympics brought many changes to Vancouver; the 2009 Jack Poole Plaza and the Convention Center are evidence of that. The ten beautiful white sails that adorn the convention center represent the ten provinces in Canada. The East wing houses the 3 totems (1900...More
