As part of BC's Restart, the Vancouver Convention Centre is now welcoming back clients, guests, and the community for safe events and gatherings. We have worked hard throughout the pandemic to make sure that our team is ready and our facility is equipped so that you can feel confident when you walk through our doors. As of April 8, 2022, proof of vaccination will no longer be required. As of now, face masks are encouraged, but no longer required to be worn in public spaces.
