Travel and Accommodations

Hotel Recommendations

Like any big city, Vancouver offers a wide range of hotels. If you are travelling from out of town and require accommodation, we recommend the following hotels close to the event space:

Getting There

The event will be held at Simon Fraser University (SFU), Harbour Centre, 515 W. Hastings Street, Vancouver, B.C. It is centrally located in Vancouver’s downtown core and easily accessed by SkyTrain, bus, West Coast Express, and floatplane.

SFU Harbour Centre provides transportation information on its website.


There are no designated SFU parking facilities at the Vancouver campus, but there are many public parking garages in the area. Two of the closest garages to Harbour Centre are the Imperial Parking garage at 450 West Cordova Street and the Diamond Parking garage at 443 Seymour Street.

Car Rentals

There are a number of car rental companies in downtown Vancouver, including Pacific Car Rental, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Avis Car Rental, and Budget Car Rental.
