FROM THE DOUGLAS (PEACE ARCH) BORDER CROSSING
After crossing the border you will have entered Surrey BC. If you continue on Hwy 99 it takes you through Richmond BC and into Vancouver-proper. Eventually this becomes Oak Street. When you are in Vancouver-proper (after crossing the Oak street bridge) go to 41st avenue and take a left turn (west) onto 41st. Keep going until you reach Granville street and then make a right (north) turn onto Granville. Keep going until you are downtown. NOTE: part of Granville street downtown is not open to vehicle traffic (except taxis and buses). You are better off taking the (right-lane) exit onto Seymour street when you are approaching the north side of the Granville street bridge. Click here for a map of the downtown area with the conference venue indicated. It is about a 35 minute drive to Downtown Vancouver from the border crossing.
The hotels are very close to the conference venue (see map.)
