  • RECEPTION ON THE TERRACE | Monday, 22 June – 6pm
    Join us at the Fairmont Waterfront’s sun-drenched terrace located on the 3rd floor surrounded by Vancouver’s infamous north shore mountains. Canapés and cocktails will be served while the rhythmic sounds of KOKOSOUL play an eclectic mix of tunes from a bygone era to modern times. Come as you are to enjoy the sun and network with your colleagues on the pool terrace. A perfect opportunity to connect with old colleagues and meet new ones! 
    Tuesday, 23 June – 6:15pm 
    Delegates will be in for a treat Tuesday night as the ballroom transforms into a showcase of Vancouver’s rich multicultural scene. Get ready for sensory overload as dazzling live performers tell riveting stories through music and movement. We'll enjoy performances from the First Nations, China, Latin America and India as we enjoy a delicious three-course meal and wine produced in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. Attire is "business casual" so come spiffy and well-heeled!
