People have great ideas all the time. Just the other week we at the Burrard had this great idea to open up our own coffee shop connected to the hotel and call it Betty. Great idea right?

TedXVancouver is fond of ideas, or it would appear that ideas are what TedXVancouver is built upon. Some of the greatest idea people in the world have appeared as part of the revolutionary idea spreading phenomenon TedTalks. In one week we’ll be welcoming the speakers and organizers for TedXVancouver to our very hotel and we’re offering up special rates for all attendees.
