“This is such a great opportunity for Can West,” says show chair, Michelle Pain. “Exhibiting in a facility that boasts a green design and featuring a six-acre living roof is a natural fit for our industry.” Show delegates who travel from throughout North America, will now have a chance to check out this award-winning site.
The Vancouver Convention Centre’s Green Roof is the largest living roof and the largest non-industrial living roof in North America. It houses thousands of indigenous plants and recovers rainwater for irrigation. Its also located steps away from the 2010 Winter Games’ Olympic Flame.
