It pays to host your event in Nanaimo

Choose a Nanaimo meeting venue — from a grand conference centre to a more intimate space — that best suits your group. Bring everyone together in a small but vibrant downtown space just steps from the harbour with hotels, shops and restaurants nearby. Or opt for a university campus setting or unique retreat setting in nature.

Unique venues include:

  • State-of-the-art conference centre
  • Retreat centre on a mountain lake
  • 800-seat theatre adjacent to wharf
  • Art gallery in downtown’s shopping district
  • University campus rooms with a view
  • Upscale hotel meeting rooms downtown
  • Privately owned halls in the country
  • See the complete list of venues [insert link here]

Pre- or post-meeting tours & adventures

Here, you can go from downtown meeting to wilderness hiking or biking trails in just a few minutes. Walk from your downtown hotel to the harbour for a kayaking or stand up paddle board tour. Spend an afternoon exploring local craft breweries and distilleries or take a short water taxi and explore Saysutshun Island with a local Snuneymuxw knowledge keeper. A weekend surfing adventure in Tofino is less than a three-hour drive away.
