WHAT'S THE WEATHER LIKE IN VANCOUVER IN JUNE?
Vancouver's climate is temperate and varies! We encourage you to keep an eye on the forecast, and pack a rain coat just in case.
Average daytime temperatures in June are 19°C. The nights still cool down, falling to 11°C by early morning.
The Summit is a casual, athletic environment. We encourage you to dress comfortably. Feel free to bring a dressy-casual outfit for dinner and cocktails, but don't forget your athletic gear for sports activities!
WHICH AIRPORT SHOULD I FLY INTO?
Vancouver International Airport is the closest terminal to our Summit host venue The Westin Bayshore.
WILL TRANSPORTATION BE PROVIDED?
You are responsible for your own transportation to the Summit and to/from the airport. The most efficient way to travel from YVR Airport to The Westin Bayshore is via taxi or rideshare options like Lyft. Public transit to the downtown core is very efficient via the Canada Line Skytrain, however, the Resort is located approximately 1.7 km from the terminus station at Waterfront. If the weather is great and bags are light, it is a lovely 20-minute walk along Vancouver’s picturesque seawall.
Plan to arrive between 12pm-1pm on the first day of the Summit. The program will begin around 3pm and we encourage you to visit our Welcome Suite prior to kick off!
Bring your ideas, your energy, and your enthusiasm! Other suggestions: raincoat, sunblock, lip balm, sunglasses, sportswear, a sweater, and a jacket for cooler evenings and mornings.
