What’s new at this year’s conference?

One Showcase Venue – Two Theatres!
This year’s exclusive showcase venue is the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts located a short distance from the conference hotel in Deer Lake Park in Burnaby.  The Shadbolt Studio Theatre (160 seats) has been a showcase theatre in the past but new this year is the James Cowan Theatre – JCT (285 seats).

Dine Arounds Are Back!
Back by popular demand, the dine-around dinner on Friday, April 6 offers delegates an opportunity to sign up and dine with friends and new colleagues at local restaurants around the conference hotel.  Sign up at the conference for your favourite restaurant and enjoy dinner out on the town.

Lunch at the Hart House Restaurant
Located in a Tudor style home with views of Deer Lake and one of the most gorgeous patios in the Lower Mainland, we’re hosting our “Getting to know you Lunch” at Hart House following the Short 5 Showcases on Saturday April 7. Hart House is located a hop, skip and jump from the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts showcase  venue.

Late Night Hospitality – Reflect Lounge – Hilton Vancouver Metrotown L3
No more up and down the elevators to the18th Floor! This year, the late night hospitality will be hosted in the Reflect Lounge at the conference Hotel on level 3. Delegates and showcasing artists are invited to meet in the lounge to relax, reflect and catch-up with old friends and make some new ones. Unwind on the sofa by the warm glow of the fireplace. Savour a glass of wine (including 25 different wines by the glass), an expertly prepared cocktail from the extensive drink menu or a frosty micro-brew or imported beer.
