Balmy Mediterranean climates…200 wineries…numerous breath-taking lakes and golf courses…that’s what the University of British Columbia at Okanagan can bring to your summer meeting or event.
UBC Okanagan offers a quietly peaceful and beautifully landscaped meeting environment – with grassy areas, panoramic views and many ways to enjoy nature. The campus is situated in the middle of the Okanagan (also known as the Napa Valley of British Columbia). Yet under that classic façade resides an abundance of diverse, modern spaces incorporating the newest technology and built-in AV equipment.
From May through August, UBC offers full conference facilities, meeting facilities and meeting and event planning services. The university’s team of meeting professionals is at your service to make your event a success – and help you with everything from the logistics of your conference planning and registration to selecting the right meeting facilities, conference venues, amenities, catering and accommodations.
As a fairly young campus, UBC Okanagan can offer its guests new and newly renovated facilities — from a variety of tiered lecture theatres to state-of-the-art classrooms and boardrooms, to expansive foyers and mezzanines. UBC has a wide variety of accommodation options available as well. The on-campus accommodations are ideally located close to all UBC meeting facilities and conference venues.
Event planners will also appreciate the convenience of UBC Okanagan’s on-site caterer, Classic Fare Catering, which can create menus that range from spectacular to simple,depending on your event or occasion.
Everything you need on one campus!
The university is conveniently located just five minutes from the Kelowna International Airport, which offers daily direct flights to and from Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and Seattle.
If you’re planning a summer event, UBC Okanagan — with its scenic backdrops and top-of-the-line audio and visual technology — offers the ideal environment.
