Explore Vancouver

The TAICEP conference is not only a chance to network and learn from experts in the field. It is also an exciting opportunity to explore the conference's host city. Over the years TAICEP held conferences in iconic US cities of Philadelphia and Chicago. In 2017 we took you on a Roman Holiday in the Eternal City of Rome, Italy.

This year we continue this tradition by hosting our 5th Annual Conference in picturesque Vancouver, British Columbia on the west coast of Canada.

Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel, the venue of TAICEP 5th Annual Conference, is located at the heart of Vancouver in the Coal Harbour district and many of the attractions are within walkable distance:

  • Stanley Park, a breathtaking 405-acre public park, is only a 15 minute walk from our conference hotel.
