CinC2016 has negotiated a discounted group rate for the conference hotel: Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown. This will give you quick access to the conference and activities. For information on how to register please click here. The transportation system is very efficient and you will be able to come directly from the airport to the conference place via the rapid rail system (Skytrain) on the Canada Line. If you are unable to stay at the Marriott we refer to our website by Tourism Vancouver.. We recommend a hotel/hostel close to the conference place in downtown Vancouver.
- Warmed by Pacific Ocean currents and protected by a range of mountains, Vancouver's weather is mild year-round. From high 70's Fahrenheit (low 20's Celsius) in summer to a mild mid 40's Fahrenheit (0º to 5º Celsius) in winter, the climate is always hospitable. Our winters are wet, but it rarely snows, except on our local ski hills. Or the conference period we expect a pleasant weather.
- We recommend all visitors use Canadian currency (the Canadian Dollar - CAD) when travelling within Canada. Visitors can exchange currency at Canadian chartered banks, trust companies, credit unions, or at offices of foreign exchange brokers, but it is advised to have local currency on hand prior to arriving. Some hotels, merchants, restaurants and suppliers accept US or other foreign currency at a pre-determined rate, which may differ from the daily rate posted by financial institutions. The Canadian Dollar is made up of 100 Canadian cents. Coins are in denominations of 5 cents (nickel), 10 cents (dime), 25 cents (quarter), $1 (loonie), and $2 (toonie). Notes are in denominations $5, $10, $20, $50, $100 and $1,000.
