This year's meeting will be held at the Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue, which is located at SFU's downtown campus:

Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue
580 West Hastings Street
Vancouver, British Columbia V6B 5K3

The picture above is an image of the conference room. As you can see, it is set up in "United Nations" style, complete with individual microphones, translation and recording services, multiple screens, and (green/red) "voting buttons." Evidently, the center stage (where the presenter stands) rotates at speeds of up to 100 RPM (controlled by a dial located near the session chair). We are told that the stage is also equipped with a hidden trap door that is activated automatically when a majority of listeners have pressed their red (thumbs down) vote button (sending the offending presenter off into to the bowels of Hades). But seriously, this is a first-rate facility (and the voting buttons do exist).
