Location, Location, Location.
As LTX has grown, we’ve looked for bigger and better locations year after year. We know that a lot of you travel internationally to come to visit and we are so thankful that you do! We’ve heard your feedback about our location, and many of you have suggested that we bring LTX to the USA, or even further abroad. Unfortunately, that just isn’t feasible right now. Instead, we really wanted to make sure that the location this year was close to the airport, close to lots of options for hotels, easily accessible by transit, and of course had a ton of really awesome food and non-LTX things to do nearby.
This is why we’ve chosen the Vancouver Convention Centre. Located right on the water near Downtown Vancouver BC, this venue checks off all the boxes that we may have missed before. Flying into the Vancouver International Airport, the venue is a short 30-minute Skytrain ride away. Not familiar with the Skytrain? Don’t worry, we’ll include a detailed travel plan in the coming months with how our transit works, as well as driving tips if you’re local or renting a car.
There are also a ton of options for hotels, motels, B&Bs and even hostels in and around the Vancouver area. We know the city can be expensive, so we are working with some local hotels to have a group booking discount and researching easy to get to alternatives to save you some cash. As soon as we have all of that confirmed we will share it with you here.
We also look forward to having some great menu options during your 2 days at LTX 2019 x DreamHack. With such a central location the Vancouver Convention Centre is walking distance from a ton of great restaurants, pubs, food trucks and quick eats in the food court, only 5 minutes away. Having options is great, and we wanted to make sure that your only option wasn’t a crazy long line for a hotdog. All in all the city has a lot to offer with gorgeous walks on the waterfront to the world famous Stanley Park a quick 10 minute drive away. If you are planning to spend a bit more time here during your trip, check out our coming blog post filled with lots of fun things to do in the area!
