PARKING INFORMATION

The RBC Convention Centre  has two separate climate controlled underground parkades (North and South) with 729 parking stalls. We encourage all exhibitors to try and use street parking or alternative garages to allow the visitors of the show more availability to park with ease. 

The parkade is able to accommodate standard passenger vehicles (car, half-ton trucks and vans). Oversized SUVs and other vehicles that exceed parkade height restrictions (6 feet 5 inches) are invited to use surface parking lots or street parking available throughout the downtown area.

The North Parkade accepts cash, credit & debit cards for the payment of parking fees.
The South Parkade accepts cash, debit and credit cards for payment at the pay station located beside the elevator and credit cards only at the exit.

BOOTH AWARDS!

Each year, the Vancouver Home Shows award six exhibitors, each in a different category, for standing out from their competition and peers. The categories for the booth awards are listed below, accompanied by the criteria our panel of judges look for when selecting the winning booth and company. We value all of the hard work our exhibitors put in to create their displays and design their spaces and award those who go above and beyond to put their best foot forward.
