April 16-18, 2021
Welcome to Nanaimo
AVICC is going ahead with plans to hold our 2021 Convention as an in-person event in Nanaimo from Friday April 16 to Sunday April 18 at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre. The City of Nanaimo and the Regional District of Nanaimo are our hosts, and we thank them for their support.
The AVICC Executive will continue to monitor and observe the orders of the Provincial Health Officer, and if necessary the Convention may be held virtually. The intention is to make a decision on whether the Convention can be in-person or virtual by January 2021.
AVICC would like to thank the Snuneymuxw First Nation, the Qualicum First Nation, and the Snaw-naw-as (Nanoose) First Nation for welcoming our members to their territory for the upcoming convention, and we look forward to their involvement throughout.
Nanaimo has many accommodation options. AVICC has set up room blocks with the two hotels closest to the conference centre. Information on the hotels is available at Accommodations.
AVICC has chosen to source the meals and drinks served at the convention, as well as our speaker gifts, from Island Good suppliers.
