Barack Obama will be landing in YVR this March for a special event hosted by the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade.

“At this moment in history, President Obama is quite possibly the most coveted speaker in the world. Repeatedly, his name has topped our Member surveys as the individual that B.C. business leaders most want to hear from. For those reasons — and many more — we are ecstatic to welcome President Obama to our city on March 5,” said Lori Mathison, 2018-19 Chair of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade.

“It is an honour for our organization to host one of the most respected world leaders in recent history, in light of his lifelong dedication to principled diplomacy and creating a more equal society,” added Hon. Iain Black, President and CEO of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade.

Tickets go on sale to Members of the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade on Jan. 25 at 10 am. If tickets remain following member pre-sale, public tickets will go on sale Feb. 1 at 10 am.

Obama served as President of the United States of America between 2008 and 2016.

Prior to that gig, he was a state senator in Illinois from 1997 to 2004. In the two years since he handed the presidency over to Donald Trump, Obama has been making speeches, appearing at rallies, making visits at non-profit organizations, and ordering the occasional ham and cheese sandwich with his pal Joe Biden.

The former president has also recently signed onto an agreement with Netflix, alongside his wife Michelle Obama, to produce and curate films and series, which they could potentially appear in.
