Jogging in Stanley Park, Drinks in Yaletown, a visit to the aquarium – we’ve all read about the tourist must-dos in Vancouver, but what if you’re in town on business, or you’ve just relocated, and you need recommendations for networking, transport, office space and career-boosting extra-curricular activities? Well, we’ve got you covered. Not only do we offer luxury furnished rentals, but we’ve put together an invaluable list of ‘insider tips’ for executives in BC’s busiest town:
Meet like-minded people: There are plenty of networking events in Vancouver aimed at young entrepreneurs, but you’ll want to seek out something a little more mature. VanEx (Vancouver Executive Association) was founded in 1920 and is all about connecting business leaders (only one membership is permitted for each business category, ensuring a diverse and exclusive group).
Get around: If you’re not into the idea of hailing a cab or jumping on a train every time you need to get somewhere, then check out AeroCar, a high-end transportation company with luxury cars, limos, SUVs and passenger vans perfect for picking up VIP guests. Want to rent your own luxury wheels? Get in touch with Hertz and ask for their Prestige Collection. You can rent cadillacs, mercedes and others for the duration of your stay – GPS included.
Stay somewhere sophisticated: We may be a little biased here, but we think you should check out our luxury furnished apartments – whether you need a place to stay long-term or just while you search for something permanent. They’re equipped with everything you’ll need from the get-go, and situated all over the city; Downtown, False Creek, Yaletown, and West Side. You’ll have in-suite laundry facilities, free WiFi, exceptional decor, and a full kitchen – perfect for entertaining.
Relax in Style: Forget the usual hotel bars and upgrade your me-time with a membership at Terminal City Club. Billed as one of Canada’s most distinguished private clubs, it’s got business facilities, fine dining, social spaces, and fitness facilities. You can rent out the private meeting rooms for business functions, or join in one of the members-only events, like summer BBQs and wine tastings.
