Venue

VCON 42 will be at the
SHERATON VANCOUVER AIRPORT HOTEL

For all our attendees who will need a room booking, we have a highly discounted convention group rate available. This rate is also available for several days before and after for anyone from outside the Vancouver metro region interested in spending some time as a tourist in our fair cities.

Even if you live locally we recommend booking a room at the hotel! With programming running until late, hospitality open until 1:00 AM, room parties running even later and both tabletop and console game rooms open all night, with a room booking for Friday and Saturday night you can be sure of having a private place to catch up on sleep and get in a shower and put on some fresh clothes before breakfast each morning. With the event starting at noon on Friday, if you also include Thursday in your room booking you can take your Friday morning easy, strolling into pre-registration pick up as soon as it opens (usually by 10:00 AM Friday). Throw in Sunday night and you can join the ConCom (Convention Committee) at their “Dead Dog” wrap-up party, safe in the knowledge you have a place to crash when it’s all over at who-knows-when-o’clock in the morning.

Most rooms sleep up to four people too, so you can even get together with up to three friends and split the costs.

As we are hosting Canvention this year we do expect to see more guests and attendees coming in from further afield than usual, so we have also arranged additional travel discounts for those flying into Vancouver International Airport (YVR) or wishing to rent a vehicle – see the “Flights & Rental Car” section for details.
