“After debuting our original website six years ago when we opened the Vancouver Convention Centre’s West building, we know it’s time to present something new and exciting for our clients, our partners and our community,” said Claire Smith, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Vancouver Convention Centre. “We want to offer an enhanced user experience with our new site, providing practical tools and innovative technology features, and at the same time, resources that inspire meeting professionals.”
The refreshed website features brand new online floor plans utilizing Google Streetview of the function spaces; simplified architecture for ease of navigation and flow; a dynamic homepage with live social media and news feeds; as well as an enhanced event calendar. The site is also optimized for an efficient and elevated mobile and tablet user experience.
Also new to the website is the Convention Centre blog, Inspired.
“We have always been proud to have a facility that is designed to inspire – from our setting and views to our architecture and service,” explained Smith. “In turn, the events we host inspire us on a daily basis. Our blog is a new platform to share ideas and innovations we observe from our events, as well as trends and tips that will provoke new thinking to help planners elevate their events.”
“The Vancouver Convention Centre has always been in tune with the needs of the marketplace and the revamped website not only exceeds the needs of planners, it also deeply responds to the needs of delegates who are seeking very specific information,” said Tahira Endean, Conference Producer, BC Innovation Council #BCTECH Summit. “I appreciate the understanding for both needs and applaud them on the work they have done to serve these needs.”
