IACLEA’s 2019 Annual Conference & Exposition will take place in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The host city is a beloved metropolis on the west coast of Canada less than 150 miles from Seattle, Washington. Downtown Vancouver and the conference site are surrounded by fabulous restaurants, shopping, and entertainment, with mountains on one side and the harbor and ocean on the other. Visitors receive a stunning view year-round. Vancouver has many places in walking distance to experience natural beauty, such as the Granville Island Public Market. Alternatively, visitors can grab a bike and ride around the world-renowned Stanley Park Seawall and enjoy one of the largest urban parks.
You can expect IACLEA’s first-rate educational programming, of course, as well as a vendor showcase. But why else should you come? The food is great…There is lots of entertainment and excitement…Oh, and the beer is pretty good, too. And, at this time, the exchange rate is highly favorable to those using US currency.
The IACLEA staff is cooking up great tour and vacation packages for you and your family or friends to enjoy the amazing locale before or after the conference. The average June temperature is a glorious 67 degrees (daytime)!
If that is not enough: it is only an hour and a half gorgeous ferry ride from the city of Vancouver on the mainland to Vancouver Island and the lovely city of Victoria, British Columbia, or a couple of hours drive from Whistler, with stunning hiking trails, via the Sea to Sky Highway. It ranks number five for quality of living, among a global survey by human resources consultant Mercer’s.
IACLEA is pleased that the University of British Columbia Campus Safety Department will be the host institution.
No matter your interests, there is something for everyone, including the great western Canadian hospitality. Hope to see you next year at #IACLEA2019 in Vancouver!!
