Tickets for the 7th annual Interesting Vancouver are now on sale, taking place at SFU Woodward’s on Friday, November 7th, 2014.

Interesting Vancouver is an annual community gathering showcasing the region’s most fascinating people and the way they express their creativity through their hobbies, passions and obsessions. Tickets sell-out quickly – get more information at the Interesting Vancouver website.

What To Expect

Interesting Vancouver gatherings are casual and relaxed, with a low cost structure ensuring affordability. The evening will kick off with a gathering of audience and speakers, igniting conversational sparks. Over the evening, eight carefully curated speakers from Metro Vancouver’s diverse community will speak for 10 minutes about something they care deeply about—followed by an engaging dialogue with the audience. The link is curiosity.
