Throughout the year we host four events that stand out from the rest.

These marquee events are always exceptionally well-attended, with Members and sponsors saving the date in their calendars up to a year in advance.


Economic Outlook

Now in its 30th year, this annual forum takes a timely look at the year ahead. We gather some of the country's top financial minds and ask them to share their economic forecasts and predictions for Greater Vancouver, British Columbia, and Canada.


Governors' Banquet

Business, government and community leaders come together at this black-tie gala to officially induct the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade's Immediate Past Chair into the Council of Governors. The evening is also an opportunity to recognize the winners of our Rix Awards for Engaged Community Citizenship and Engaged Corporate Citizenship. As our primary fundraiser for the year, proceeds from this event go towards the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade's four Signature Programs.


Annual General Meeting

Our AGM provides Members an opportunity to vote on resolutions that will guide the direction of the Greather Vancouver Board of Trade for the coming fiscal year. The incoming Chair and new Board of Directors are also officially inducted at the AGM.


Golf Classic

Vancouver's most influential business leaders tee off every year for 18 holes of spectacular golf, on-course challenges, and prizes. The day is capped off with an evening banquet dinner and awards ceremony, where golfers have a chance to regale about the highs and lows of their day on the links.



One of North America's largest gatherings of changemakers, influencers, business leaders, and young women collaborating to advance equality. Our goal is to grow the Canadian economy by championing gender diversity in leadership as a business imperative.
