Centrally located at the heart of Greater Vancouver, and right between YVR and Abbotsford airports, Surrey is an acclaimed innovation hub and the perfect event location for attendees from all over British Columbia, Canada, and the world.
When it comes to planning an event, one of the most important pieces to perfect is accommodation. Fortunately, Surrey has a wide range of hotels, motels, and more for your participants and attendees to call their home away from home. What’s more, the Surrey Hotel and Motel Association is one of the three partner organizations that make up Sport Surrey… so you’ll have a direct line to the accommodations when you are planning your event.
The Hotel Experience in Surrey
As British Columbia’s fastest-growing city, Surrey is the premier place for hosting sporting events and is the Tournament Capital for Greater Vancouver… and Surrey’s accommodations are a major piece of why the city has been the destination of choice for so many major provincial, national, and international tournaments.
When event organizers talk about the advantages of hosting their event in Surrey, a few major themes come up time and time again:
- Centrally Located with Easy Transportation
- Warm and Welcoming Businesses and Community
- The Range of Comfortable and Adaptable Accommodations
Something For Everyone
The third bullet on the list above is a big testament to the way accommodation providers go above and beyond to ensure every event has a coordinated and robust range of accommodations for all organizers, players, and fans. We know that a great night’s sleep can be just as important as any other element of an event (sometimes even more important), so the Sport Surrey team will work directly with you and our accommodation providers to provide the perfect fit for everyone.
Hotel Sizes and Event Space
Event facilities are one thing, team meeting spaces and meals are another. Fortunately, Surrey hotels have you covered. Our partnered hotels can host groups of up to 700 delegates. Our biggest hotel has 26,000 square feet of meeting space, with 19 meeting rooms and the largest meeting room is 5,400 square feet.
Need more space? Several of our hotels can partner together to host larger events. Surrey has 17 hotels and motels of various sizes. We pride ourselves in having both smaller family-run venues perfect for intimate smaller groups looking to explore the area, as well as larger international branded venues for corporate and association scale events.
Why Fans Choose Surrey
Behind every new discovery is a story – a journey, an experience, the start of something special. As soon attendees arrive, they will feel like they are a part of the community and they’ll soon have a new favourite local spot to call their own! We’re proud to be telling Surrey’s story and hope that everyone who is a part of your event will come away with their own unique experience to share… because our big, burgeoning city is the starting point for something extraordinary!
