"Flower Power"

It's no exaggeration to say the Vancouver Convention & Exhibition Centre is really blossoming as an international convention venue these days-and what better evidence than the role that Vancouver Rose Society members Brenda Viney and Darlene Sanders played in bringing the World Federation of Rose Societies Convention here in 2009!

Together, they presented a bid for this prestigious event at the 2003 Convention in Glasgow, and came away with a win for Vancouver. The result will be over 1500 delegates and a new event feature-a three day rose exposition that will be open to the public.

Brenda and Darlene's success underlines the important benefits that these kinds of events deliver. The convention itself will generate over $4 million in local economic benefits based on delegate spending. At the same time, it will bring a world of expertise in this specialized area to our doorstep where it can be shared with the entire community.

Here at the Vancouver Convention & Exhibition Centre, we salute Brenda and Darlene and others like them whose efforts in bringing in such events benefit everyone in the community. We want them to know that their work is appreciated - and that we're here to support their initiatives in every way we can.
