The symposium will be held in beautiful Whistler B.C., Canada which is located in the spectacular Coast Mountains of British Columbia. It is just two hours north of Vancouver.

Accommodations will be at the Hilton Whistler Resort and Spa, located in the heart of the village, within walking distance to all amenities.

 

The meeting rooms will be at the Whistler Conference Centre just steps away from the hotel.

It is located on "Golfer's Approach", a mere two minute walk from the shops and restaurants in Village Square.

Due to Whistler's coastal proximity, temperatures are moderate through the winter season, rarely dipping below -10'C (12'F) in the valley and -15'C (5'F) in the alpine during the coldest part of the year.

Summer in Whistler brings temperatures ranging from highs of 21'C/70'F to 27'C/80'F with August being the warmest month.

Whistler is best known for its skiing, but it is also a year-round resort.
