About Vancouver

Vancouver welcomes you

The 2014 IHDL conference will take place just in time for Vancouver’s spectacular cherry blossoms adorning the city. Every year, Vancouverites welcome spring with the delightful view of the city’s 40,000 cherry trees bursting with pink and white blossoms. 

With unparalleled natural beauty and endless outdoor activities and sites to visit, Vancouver will be an unforgettable conference destination.

Locals enjoy outdoor activities such as biking around the beautiful Stanley Park located in downtown Vancouver with magnificent ocean and mountain views, or hiking on one of Vancouver's many trails. World class dining experience in Vancouver is also not to miss.
