If you’re a meeting planner, trade show manager, caterer or client you’ve probably heard the complaints about loading docks, elevators, ballrooms and other aspects of the facilities you need to use. When you see a venue doing things right let us know.

Chris Casey from AVFX offered his perspectives.

The Vancouver Convention Centre is a favorite because:

Seaplane landing behind Vancouver Convention Centre

A view from loading dock at the Vancouver Convention Centre, Vancouver, BC. On the ground floor of the building looking out over Vancouver Harbor to the mountains beyond. Yes, that is a sea plane landing.

  • Best view he’s ever seen from a loading dock.
  • Ease of loading and unloading. Lots of space.
  • There are approximately 22 loading bays.
  • All goods come straight off the trucks and onto the floor.
  • There is also a marshaling yard about 1 block away. Not bad for a convention centre located right downtown.
