Attended Sportsman & Outdoor Show
Mar. 2020
Great venue for the Fraser Valley, just the right size for exhibitors. Also allows for outdoor component to the show via side exits. Food & drink offered and place is kept clean. Only complaint would be parking. Price has increased to $7 (for this event) and you have to stand in line to pay at a machine. Old system you just handed an attendant $5 on the way out. It was busy so a line up at all machines. Parking lot is long/narrow so you have quite a walk to main entrance when it’s busy. Venue was good for the show though.

PUT ON YOUR WALKING SHOES
Dec. 2018
Most the the events taking place here are excellent. The building is spacous and clean. It has a small restaurant and snack bar. The biggest problem is walking the parking lot and then walking the indoor event. You need good walking shoes. I know this may sound cheap but there is no other way to get to these events ( no busses no shuttle) except by car and they charge for parking. Best solution is to pack the car with people and share the cost. I live on a fixed income so this is my way of getting out and affording events.

Coastal Swap Meet
May 2019 • Friends
The location is great for big shows or flea markets. We had a good time at the coastal Swap meet. The organizers of the swap meet could have organised it better.

RV show
Sep. 2018 • Family
It was so hot in the building that everyone was stripping down. The September weather was mild, but inside it felt like the hottest summer day. There are no obvious water stations.

Volleyball provincials at the Tradex
Apr. 2018 • Family
I was impressed by the upgrade in the way they do the pay parking now, much quicker and convenient. The facilities were always clean and the addition of the filtered free water station was exceptional. My only wish was that the food service was not so expensive, they know we cannot get good food anywhere near so they charge a premium for ok eats.

Huge warehouse for conferences
Sep. 2017 • Solo
This is a huge warehouse/airplane hangar type prefab building, where trade shows are held. I guess I'm used to the Vancouver Confence Centre, and others within decent hotels. This place is strictly utilitarian, with ugly, harsh lighting and bare cement walls. The coffee shop isn't bad, with decent coffee. The seminar chairs are pretty comfortable. But bring your sunglasses to tolerate the lighting and maybe ear plugs for the high noise levels that echo endlessly off the hard surfaces. I've seen people bring pets to the Pet Expo trade show, and I can't imagine how difficult it must be for those sensitive ears to tolerate this venue. They also hold the annual RV and Motorcycle Shows here. Good representation of the trades at each one. Good shows here, but give yourself plenty of time to step outside into fresh air and a bit of quiet.

Good Exhibition
Nov. 2016 • Solo
It was two years ago that I was here. Exhibition was good (RVs) but didn't like the paid parking. Should have free parking but charge to get in.
