Indulge in the sumptuous tastes of Greater Vancouver's flourishing food and beverage industry during this unique celebration — a first of its kind for the Board of Trade!

Join us as some of our region's top chefs delight guests with a four-course gourmet meal in the elegant and exclusive setting of a Mercedes-Benz showroom. Each course will be skillfully prepared by a different chef, making this a one-of-a-kind dining experience.

As dessert and coffee is served, our program will continue with a thought-provoking panel discussion on entrepreneurship, innovation, and the business of food and drink.

Don't miss this exclusive culinary experience — served with a side of food for thought.
