We are excited to be returning to Vancouver for our second networking reception in 2019. Following our Spring visit when we led a business-government delegation from the City of Long Beach, California, we are returning to host a very special event at the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame.
Our featured speaker will be Paul McIntyre Royston, CEO of the Canadian Olympic Foundation (Team Canada), who will be sharing the mission of the foundation and their focus on raising funds to support the Olympic infrastructure built for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics for the benefit of today’s and tomorrow’s Olympic athletes.
Of course, there is a Southern California connection to share too!
Not only are Los Angeles and Southern California excited to be hosting the Olympics in 2028, but the Canadian Olympic Foundation is interested in connecting the community behind the successful 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics with the organizers of the Los Angeles 2028 Summer Olympics. It is an opportunity to share best practices in preparing for and protecting the legacy of successful Olympic Games for the benefit of all our Olympians.
We look forward to welcoming you at a very special venue too. With thanks to the Vancouver Whitecaps Football Club, we will be hosting our reception at the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame at B.C. Place in downtown Vancouver. As we talk about excellence and achievement in sports, there could not be a better fit.
Thank You to Our Sponsors

Sports Hall of Fame, we are grateful to the Vancouver Hotel Destination Association (Stay Vancouver Hotels) for being our hospitality sponsor.
