Your friends from Vancouver, Whistler and Victoria are excited to connect with our fantastic colleagues at the 2015 SITE SoCal Holiday Event & Charity Auction! We'll give you the lowdown on beautiful British Columbia's array of group adventures and urban experiences: like meeting in Whistler, one of the world's top year-round destination resorts; soaking in the unique blend of old-world-meets-new in Victoria, the provincial capital; and spending the day exploring Vancouver's lush rainforest, innovative meeting spaces, and too-cool-for-school nightlife.
Need an excuse to visit? Attend PCMA's 2016 Convening Leaders conference in Vancouver (January 10 - 13, 2016), adding pre- and post-trips to Whistler and Victoria (you can easily travel between the cities via floatplane, ferry, or car). In Vancouver, you can choose from a carefully curated roster of conference day trips, including an invigorating bike ride around the Instagram-worthy seawall and Stanley Park; a jaunt around Granville Island, the city's culinary and artisanal hub; and more. Up at Whistler, hop into a snowmobile and zip up to the summit of Blackcomb Mountain for a cozy fondue or take in stunning 360-degree views aboard the Peak 2 Peak Gondola. Over in Victoria, network with locals in "Canada's Smartest City," or host an event at a variety of unique venues (think castle to cider farm).
And to top it all off? Whistler and Victoria have set up fantastic pre- and post-trips hotel rates for PCMA attendees. Check out the offers at www.tourismvictoria.com/meeting/pcma and www.whistler.com/delegates/pcma.
But PCMA isn't all we've got going on. All three cities are year-round destinations whose distinctive events, festivals, attractions and excursions appeal to all interests and ages. Want to learn more? Let us know and we'll help you set up the perfect trip to Vancouver, Whistler or Victoria.
