Event Overview

cn conference centre


cn roundhouse and conference centreThere are endless opportunities for your event at the West Coast Railway Park and/or the CN Roundhouse & Conference Centre. The 12-acre Park features a typical mid-20th century railway station and old style town centre with heritage displays and over 90 pieces of railway cars and artifacts. The Heritage Park offers a park setting with ample outdoor green space.

At the Heritage Park is the CN Roundhouse & Conference Centre with 21,000 square feet of indoor open space that can hold parties from 10 to 1,200. This unique building boasts 20 ft. high floor to ceiling windows with a panoramic view, 200 feet across, of natural light and the majestic mountains.

It also includes an upper indoor/outdoor mezzanine balcony that overlooks the Grand Hall and Roundhouse turntable ideal for smaller parties, cocktails or dessert service.

This space is unique as up to five authentic heritage trains can be moved in and out of the Roundhouse to customize the size of your event space. These authentic train cars can also be used for additional meeting space, a bridal preparation room or a speakers green room.

There are also seven sets of grand customized train doors that can be opened to create a combined indoor/outdoor space for your event.

Guests also enjoy meeting right next to the world-famous Royal Hudson steam locomotive.

We’d love to have you up for a private guided tour to see this spectacular venue first-hand.

“Unique, modern and in a stunning part of British Columbia. One person commented that they will now struggle to go to other "stuffy, boring conferences in airport hotel conference rooms, after attending this event." Not only was the venue impressive but the team that supported us during set-up, during the conference and afterwards. We are very thankful for all their help. We look forward to working with the WCRHP in 2017”
