VICC continues busy spring

The Vancouver Island Conference Centre continues its busy spring season as it wrapped up one major conference Friday before hosting its next big event June 3.

From May 21-25, the award-winning venue played host to 125 delegates from the B.C. Real Estate Association Conference. Using the facility's state-of-the-art features like 100 Mb high-speed wireless Internet, VOIP phone system and global broadcasting facilities, conference delegates experienced keynote speakers, skills training for media and presentations, and leadership education.

The agenda also included two receptions utilizing the Nanaimo Museum and two dinner banquets complete with entertainment.

It is estimated that the conference generated more than $197,000 in revenue in the Nanaimo area.

The team at VICC is now preparing to welcome an estimated 300 delegates from ARMA Canada's 14 chapters for a four-day conference. ARMA is made up of serving records and information management professionals.
