This might finally be the year you head to Vancouver BC on business. And whether you’re staying with CorporateStays or not, you can’t just go in blind! There’s a lot to keep in mind – from weather, to attire, to food, and lifestyle. Here’s what you need to know in order to make the most of a Vancouver business trip in 2024.

It’s a Matter of Time

One thing a lot of first time East Coast flyers forget to check when flying to Vancouver is the change in time zone. Flying in from Montreal, New York, or Boston? You’re looking at a time difference of 3 hours backwards. Depending on how long you’re traveling to Vancouver for, it can mean instinctively waking up at 4:30AM. Remember to get the sleep you need, despite the possible guilt of starting your day 3 hours after your colleagues back home.

Depending on when you’re travelling to Canada’s West Coast, you might be in for a big surprise when it comes to weather and flora. In the middle of January temperature can average between 5 and 8 degrees celsius. But before you get excited, it rains – a lot. In fact in rains so often that you’ll sometimes get 4-5 days of unending rainfall. Bring an umbrella ahead of time, or buy a temporary one while on your trip. Even if you’re cabbing everywhere, you’ll be thankful you have an umbrella on you at all times.

Restaurants in Vancouver near furnished apartments

Eat. Pray. Love.

Okay business trips aren’t known for their leisurely fun. But let’s be real – your meetings don’t last all day, and you need to eat to stay alive. So take advantage of Vancouver’s booming culinary scene. You’ll find an endless selection of Indian, Thai, and Lebanese restaurants around the city. But it is a crime to be in Vancouver and not sample their sushi. Made from some of the freshest, finest ingredients in the world, Vancouver will absolutely ruin that little sushi buffet you thought you liked back home.

Hit The Slopes

There are few views in this world that leave you absolutely speechless. Whistler is one of them. For $50 you can catch a Greyhound to mountainous Whistler. And in just two hours, you’ll be staring at the jaw-dropping view of snowy mountains as far and as high as the eye can see. If you ski, even better. But even if you don’t, you can spend the day going from peak to peak, spending an hour or two deciding on which of the 200 pictures you just took of the Whistler mountains you want to upload to Instagram.
