WHO ATTENDS

The Western Canadian Lodging Conference (WCLC), formerly known as the Western Canadian Hotel & Resort Investment Conference, aims to provide a year-end perspective on both resort and urban lodging, with a western Canadian focus. If you are involved in the development and/or operation of recreational/resort real estate or active in the hotel and urban-based investment market, join the growing number of delegates who benefit from interactive sessions and timely insights into investment activity. Hosted by CBRE Hotels Canada and in partnership with our Platinum Sponsor HVS and the BC Hotel Association (BCHA)—the Conference is a vehicle for senior level executives to reflect on the various issues impacting the lodging industry.
