Reasonably nice venue. So many levels and such it feels like a rabbit warren. Overall it is good for hosting events as long as there are plenty of folks directing traffic.

We love coming to this location, even for a casual stroll through the atrium. It's connected to the Empress Hotel, so it can be entered from the Douglas street entrance or from Goverment side.

For a medium sized town, Victoria has a great conference centre, maybe because it is the capital of the province. Strategically located in downtown Victoria and close to the hotels, restaurants and amenities, Great facility.

I found most of the VCC and Empress Hotel staff to have good customer service skills and attitude. The other lesser ones need some more customer service and sensitivity training. The majority of the VCC staff are polite, personable, and helpful as they work the...More

This is a beautiful conference center with interesting programs. It's a clean, bright, open and new architecture. It also houses The City Art Collection. My favorite was a Haida Clan's Pole, a totem carved by Don Yoemans in 1996. It's simply beautiful with incredible colorful...More
