Currently, British Columbia has no indoor mask mandate, and per our published COVID-19 policy, we will follow their guidance and will not require masks to be worn during the conference. If you choose to wear a mask for your health, and the protection of others, we fully support you in that decision and wish you to feel as safe as possible during your time with us.
During the registration process, you will be offered a coloured sticker to wear on your lanyard to indicate your level of comfort with social interactions with others. From “hug it out” to “please keep your distance”, we want you to feel comfortable here.
Complimentary WIFI access is available throughout the hotel. It is recommended that you have alternative means to access the internet and emails through your own service provider as the WIFI provided is very basic. It is not recommended that you rely on the free WIFI for security and stability reasons.
