The Greater Vancouver Board of Trade is an important voice for businesses in Vancouver and – through its member engagement, programming, advocacy, events and communications – it creates essential forums for business and community leaders to share ideas on how to make this city a better place to live and do business. Greater Vancouver Board of Trade events are well organized and informative with top quality guest speakers, and are excellent networking opportunities where members can meet people from a wide range of economic sectors.“
