Venue & Hotels

XDS adapted to our current reality and was therefore virtual in 2020 to keep our community safe in this ever changing landscape. Direction for XDS 2021 will be announced in the New Year.

Our standard in-person XDS event is held at the Parq Vancouver, the city’s newest award-winning, 5-star venue. The Parq boasts lavish suites, state-of-the-art amenities, and two five-star onsite hotels, the JW Marriott and the DOUGLAS.
