Five Reasons to Meet in Victoria


1. Networking that bears fruit

Victoria is a meetings destination that drives more intimate connections. In Victoria, people connect in a way bigger cities just can’t accommodate. Delegates will benefit from chance encounters in our Inner Harbour, unplanned conversations at our oceanfront cafés and impromptu meetings at local attractions. In Victoria, your meeting has a life beyond four walls.


2. Experiences beyond the meeting space

Delegates need more than just meetings! In Victoria, we have countless diversions—from tame to thrilling. Spas that spoil, world-class golfing, whale watching, ziplining, salmon fishing, garden tours, nightlife, live music… you name it, we’ve got it. And if you’re considering an off-site meeting space that’s a tad less conventional, we have a variety of weird and wonderful places from gardens and castles to cider farms and lighthouses to suit your needs.


3. A Destination worth travelling to

Get to Victoria with a scenic cruise along the rugged West Coast on a ferry. Hop on a float plane or helicopter and enjoy breathtaking views from above or fly directly into Victoria airport. Whichever you choose, the journey to Victoria is an opportunity to focus on the meeting ahead and leave your everyday worries behind.


4. Culinary you can connect with

Victoria’s culinary scene is honest and open. Here, you can speak with chefs, meet producers and visit the farms. Victoria has an extraordinary assortment of culinary experiences—from elegant fine dining and casual bistros to waterfront pubs and gourmet food trucks. And with a variety of small boutique-like producers, Victoria is famous for its locally made beers, ciders, wines and spirits. Who wouldn’t cheers to that? Check out this video and meet some of our chefs!
