Our Host  

LOCO and the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association partner on this event, hosted by Hungry Guys Kitchen.

Granville Street plays a vital role as Downtown Vancouver's "Main Street". It's historic buildings, arts and entertainment venues, and its neon strip, welcome local and tourists alike into the heart of the city. During the 2010 Olympics, its pulse beat brightest, providing a place for gathering and celebration.

In recent years, some of the storefronts between Robson and Drake Street have remained empty. LOCO has been working with the DVBIA to investigate some of the issues for area businesses and leasing agents, in the hopes that independent businesses will continue to find affordable spaces there, and maintaining retail diversity. 

In this fun, informal panel, LOCO will briefly review our research outcomes, and we'll hear directly from the DVBIA, businesses, leasing agents and the City of Vancouver about the challenges and opportunities in the area. People are passionate about doing business on Granville St., and this evening is an opportunity to exchange ideas and help impact the way business is done in downtown Vancouver’s Entertainment District. Together we are building a vision for Granville - listen, get involved, and meet some of the entrepreneurs who have built or are investing anew in the future of Granville Street. 

Activated DVBIA members can contact William for an exclusive discount code.
