The waterfront Vancouver Convention Centre features state-of-the-art facilities and easy access to the nearby Harbour Green Park. Past events include The Wellness Show and the Canada Travel Expo, both of which attract thousands of attendants from across the country. Other events within the city include the Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival, which is a great way to unwind.
When staying in one of Vancouver's hotels, try to hunt down an ‘all you can eat' sushi deal. Alternatively, you can take advantage of the city's authentic dim sum resources, such as those available from Sun Sui Wah. Vancouver has more Starbucks per capita than any other place in the world.
Gastown is Vancouver's oldest neighbourhood, but it packs the city's best selection of contemporary shops. Kerrisdale Street is the right place to go to for boutique shopping and for small, traditional stores. If you are feeling exotic, head down to the Punjabi Market to get your hands on some herbs, spices and traditional Punjabi clothes, as well as souvenirs, gifts and trinkets.
If your Vancouver hotel is in the centre, the Vancouver Art Gallery is not too far. Try the Museum of Anthropology to learn more about the country's first nations. For a bit of fresh air, venture to the city's coastline to stroll along one of its many beaches. While you are there try your hand at surfing, water skiing or diving.
Hockey is the biggest Vancouver sport, and with the Vancouver Canucks ranking well nationally and internationally, it is hard to find a game elsewhere that is just as thrilling. Alternatively, you can try out the Canadian version of American football and watch the BC Lions.
