Exciting details for next month’s Vancouver Summit are beginning to take shape: first, it will be held in the incredible Garibaldi room on the 31st floor of the Blue Horizons Hotel, which offers a 270-degree view of downtown Vancouver. You can take a “virtual tour” of the space by clicking the following link (select “Meeting + Banquet Rooms” at the top of the page): https://tours.360immersion.com/bluehorizonhotel/

Second, the Summit will feature the one and only Donovan Tildesley, the Canadian Paralympic swimmer and 2008 flag bearer who lives with blindness as a result of an inherited retinal disease.

More information on the Vancouver Summit will be announced shortly, including additional speakers and workshops. Once you register you will be on our list to receive financial support for travel and accommodations, should you require it. We will be booking blocks of hotel rooms in each city, but you need to sign-up now so that we can finalize numbers.

Register now so that you don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of this amazing program! And if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us atcandrews@ffb.ca or call 1.800.461.3331 ext. 263.
