The 5th International Symposium on Highway Geometric Design is just over a year away. As co-host, Transoft Solutions is preparing to host engineering professionals from around the world.
Vancouver is recognized as one of the most beautiful, ranked among the top 5 cities in the world for quality of living. If you are planning to attend the symposium, we encourage you to spend a few days before and after the event exploring our city and all of its unique features and neighbourhoods. From Granville Market adjacent to the downtown core to the North Shore Mountains to the bike paths along the sea wall leading to Stanley Park, there are hundreds of things to see and do when you join us.
What is it like in Vancouver in June? Well, if you arrive mid-month, you have just missed the explosion of colour associated with the blossoming of cherry trees all across the city. But fear not, there are still lots of things to see and do. The Dragon Boat Festival in False Creek and the Vancouver International Jazz Festival at venues across the city are just two feature events for visitors to the ISHGD Symposium.
Be sure to make time for some cultural experiences when you’re here for the Symposium with the Bard on the Beach Festival, featuring a classic Shakespeare play set on world-famous Kitsilano Beach. It’s a very popular Vancouver summer tradition and you’ll enjoy a top-notch performance with the North Shore Mountains as a backdrop.
