- 3 networking events, and

We hope you can join us!
This conference is funded in part by the Government of Canada.
All of our venues are in downtown Vancouver and close to bike lanes, train stations, other transit, and each other.
The VSO School of Music, 843 Seymour St., also has underground parking; drive north on Seymour and turn left just past the school entrance.
Check out: https://en.parkopedia.ca/ for more parking options.
Please bring a printout or display it on your phone. We will have a list of registrants, but of course we're only human, and may have missed you. Plus you then have a list of which sessions you want to go to.
It is. Please let us know who will be claiming your ticket at the registration desk as soon as you can, preferably at least a couple of days before, but we understand last-minute changes do happen.
