    Talks, Workshops, Evening Activities, Lunches (vegetarian), Beverages & Snacks.

    Location:

    The conference is being held in beautiful Vancouver, Canada.

    Experience the lush foliage, parks, trails and fresh ocean air. The city offers views of the mountains and an iconic skyline. Vancouver is the hub of vibrant art, museums and culture.

     

    Venue: 

    Douglas Hotel – 45 Smithe St, Vancouver, BC, Canada.

     

    Accommodation :
    • There are two different hotels within the complex, and you may notice both options when you enter your booking dates. The Douglas is more edgy, the JW Marriott has more of a classic feel. Both, however, are connected to the conference floor with easy access, all under one roof.
    • Please note when you are booking whether you would like a room with two Double beds, or one King. There is a note section in the reservation system for you to do so. We can’t guarantee you will get what you ask for – please contact the hotel directly afterwards to check.
    • Reserving a room at The Douglas Hotel or JW Marriott is optional. You may arrange for your accommodation elsewhere as you choose.

    Reserve early as only 150 rooms are being held for our group. There is space for 350 people at the conference.

    If you have already booked a room for the now-rescheduled-to-2022, 2020 conference, you should have received a cancellation notice. If not, please email [email protected].

     


     

    Info about COVID-19:

    The province of British Columbia may consider re-installing COVID-19 restrictions, so we advise that if you are booking flights, to purchase flight cancellation insurance. If you did not book travel or cancellation insurance, we are not responsible for payment; If the in-person aspect of the conference is cancelled due to provincial restrictions because of COVID-19 or another reason, then we will move to a 100% virtual conference and your in-person payment will be partially refunded.

     

    Cancellation Policy:

    For the conference registration itself, we will offer a full refund minus a $50 admin fee (or higher) if you wish to withdraw your registration on or before September 1. There are no refunds on or after September 2. We do not handle transactions related to hotel booking.
