2015 marks the 25th anniversary of the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association (DVBIA). The DVBIA has been instrumental in improving the quality of life in Vancouver’s city centre by advocating on behalf of its member businesses, as well as residents and visitors.

As part of its celebrations, the DVBIA wants to engage with those who live, work, play, learn and do business in our downtown core to develop a collaborative and compelling vision for the 2040 downtown Vancouver experience. Re-Imagine Downtown Vancouver will highlight how downtown Vancouver can enhance its reputation as a destination of choice for residents, visitors, and businesses alike.

To deliver an engaging experience, the DVBIA has partnered with SFU Public Square to be the project coordinator for this initiative. SFU Public Square is providing Re-Imagine Downtown Vancouver with objective and effective professional services, drawing upon years of experience in the field, well-established networks, and the quality and reputation of theSFU Centre for Dialogue in which the program is housed.
