Frequently Asked Questions

Explore how to plan an exhibition in Vancouver

Exhibitions are a special kind of event where the work of artists, technology brands, automotive companies, and other organizations are shared in a large hall or gallery. Unlike a product launch event, an exhibition explores the more artistic elements of a particular product. The beauty of race cars or the diversity of indigenous art, for example.
An exhibition is typically held in a large venue where attendees can wander between tables and art displays. There may also be special events like discussions, talks, and how-to creative events scheduled, making meeting rooms, classrooms, and other spaces separate yet conveniently located close to the main exhibition hall essential. Fortunately, Vancouver has amenities on par with any major city in Canada, making it the premiere location on the West Coast for an exhibition-style event!

Best places to host an exhibition in Vancouver

Exhibitions attract people nationwide and internationally so you'll need a space that can accommodate hundreds to thousands of guests. With over half a million square feet of space for exhibitions and other special events, the Vancouver Convention Centre is where most exhibition planners host their events. The venue has six exhibition halls with 311,500 sq. ft. of space, 22 loading bays for displays or models, and a convenient location in the heart of downtown Vancouver. The Convention Centre also includes outdoor patios, auditoriums, ballrooms, plazas, and other spaces to ensure your exhibition is a success.

Find exhibition spaces in Vancouver for smaller-space events

Exhibitions can be held in any space that will accommodate your guest list. For national-scale exhibitions like gun shows, art shows, or rock and mineral shows, consider the meeting hall of a gallery or a hotel conference/convention room. Hotels are the best choice if you're expecting many guests from out-of-town since they offer places to eat, sleep, and run the exhibition in a single building. Extra amenities like a stage for presentations and offices or classrooms for secondary exhibition functions are also easy to reserve along with the main venue.
Galleries and museums have large exhibition spaces with lighting suitable for artistic displays. If your art exhibition is related to the greater mission of the museum or art gallery, so much the better. Guests will be tempted to take the opportunity to learn more about the exhibition's subject matter. You may even get discounted or free access to the museum or art gallery with your venue rental!
