What to do in Vancouver


Welcome to Vancouver! For evening social activities, after the day’s programming is over, we welcome you to self-organize. First, please refer to the map & lists below for local things to do in Vancouver.

If you have a Community account, please connect with others to plan social activities:

  • Go to the Space button on the navigation button and select Meetings & Events/2019 REDCapCon/Attendee Participation Options/Social Activities Planning.

  • You can also use the whiteboard outside of the ballrooms. Write a note on the board that reads, for example, “Granville Island, Wednesday, meet at 7pm by the hotel restaurant”. You can also tweet #redcapcon with your plans.

  • Below are some very informal social outings which are being planned. Please check the white board, Community, and Twitter for the most recent updates, as plans may be changed or cancelled in the event of rain. Thank you!
