Meetings & Events in Richmond, BC

Richmond is your ideal west coast destination for conferences of up to 1,000 attendees. We pride ourselves on three strong qualities for being your new conference destination: Accessibility, Affordability, and Authenticity. Meeting planners looking for a new Canadian destination will find that WOW factor here in Richmond. Delegates can enjoy whale watching, winery tours, shopping, historic sites, endless culinary options at our 800 restaurants, and much more. In addition to the three A's, Tourism Richmond provides an incentive offer for new conference opportunities - click here for more information!

Richmond is home to the Vancouver International Airport (YVR). All of our 23 hotel members offer a complimentary shuttle ride to and from the airport – which is usually around a 15-minute trip. And the majority of the hotels are within a 5 to 10-minute walk to a Canada Line rapid transit station that can take your delegates to downtown Vancouver in 20 minutes. Richmond is also very close to the USA/Canada border and is an easy drive north from Seattle, WA. 

Our hotel partners know the importance cost has when planning a meeting. Our proposals are approximately 30% lower than downtown Vancouver year-round, when you take guestroom rates, meeting room rentals, and even parking costs into account. Our incentive offer can be helpful to that bottom line, too!

Richmond is truly an authentic city full of culture and diversity. Our attractions, including the Gulf of Georgia Cannery (one of two National Historic Sites in Richmond), the International Buddhist Temple (the largest Buddhist temple in North America), and the Richmond Olympic Experience (the first member of the International Olympic Committee’s Olympic Museums Network in North America) are sure to provide that WOW factor. Richmond is also well-known for its award-winning, authentic Chinese food. You'll find over 400 Asian restaurants here, including those on Alexandra Road, which is also known as "Food Street." There is truly something for everyone here in Richmond.
