VANCOUVER, B.C. — As announced on January 3, 2018, Former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama will be in Vancouver on February 15, 2018 for a special event hosted by the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade.
Due to overwhelming interest by Members of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade, all tickets to this unique conversation with Former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama have now been sold. As Members have purchased all of the available tickets, there will be no sale to the general public.
“We have never experienced this level of interest in an event,” said Iain Black, President and CEO of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade. “While pleased that our website did not crash, it did slow down temporarily shortly after Member sales opened this morning, as it experienced over one hundred and fifty times the normal traffic.”
Mr. Black continued, “Former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama is truly one of the most inspirational public figures of our time, and on behalf of the Members of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade, we are exceptionally excited to welcome her to our stage.”
