Attending the Art of Cities 2017?
We are currently securing preferred rates at a number of Vancouver hotels to meet a range of budgets. Successful applicants will receive an information package with accommodation and travel recommendations by mid-March.
To Vancouver: As a major airline hub on the west coast, Vancouver International Airport (YVR) offers many direct flights between cities across Canada, and is the closest airport to The Art of Cities. Upon arrival in the Domestic Terminal, attendees are a short walk away from the Canada Line, a rapid transit line that links the airport with downtown Vancouver in half an hour.
