Vancouver — The 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, is coming to Vancouver for a special event hosted by the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade.
The late afternoon engagement, entitled A Conversation with President Barack Obama, will take place at the Vancouver Convention Centre West at 4:30 p.m. on March 5.
“At this moment in history, President Obama is quite possibly the most coveted speaker in the world. Repeatedly, his name has topped our Member surveys as the individual that B.C. business leaders most want to hear from. For those reasons — and many more — we are ecstatic to welcome President Obama to our city on March 5,” said Lori Mathison, 2018-19 Chair of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade.
“It is an honour for our organization to host one of the most respected world leaders in recent history, in light of his lifelong dedication to principled diplomacy and creating a more equal society,” added Hon. Iain Black, President and CEO of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade.
Tickets go on sale to Members of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade on January 25 at 10 a.m. If there are tickets remaining following our Member pre-sale, they will go on sale to the public on February 1 at 10 a.m.
