Science World - 1455 Quebec St, Vancouver

On Tuesday, July 18th, 2017, The Design & Content Conference will return to the nerd mecca of Science World. Science World hosted us in our first year and feedback tells us you're keen to return.

We’re thrilled with this venue and we can’t wait to head back. This is your chance to unwind, grab a bite to eat, and enjoy the company of your peers while the sun sets over Vancouver. All while surrounded by the False Creek inlet, a cityscape view, and science!

"Launch a parachute, capture your shadow and move yourself with a giant propeller as you experiment with water, light, sound and motion among the colourful and lively exhibits in Eureka! Hands-on discovery encourages visitors to try new things and ask "What would happen if...?" Home to our spectacular water table, ball launchers and walk on piano, Eureka! is the place that brings out the curious scientist in all of us." - Science World

SCHEDULE

6:30 - 9:30pm: We’ll head into the Eureka Gallery at Science World reserved especially for us. We’ll have food for everyone, music, photo booth, great conversation, a cash bar, and one of the best views of Vancouver. All you need is your conference badge to get in!
