The 6th Annual EdTechTeam Vancouver Summit featuring Google for Education will be located in West Vancouver at the Mulgrave School across the harbor from downtown Vancouver. Mulgrave is an independent, co-ed, non-denominational International Baccalaureate World School serving 775 pre-K12 students from the city of Vancouver, Canada. A member of the Independent Schools Association of British Columbia, Mulgrave is one of the top-ranked schools in the province.
The campus sits on the side of the city’s spectacular North Shore Mountains giving a panoramic view from Vancouver Island and Georgia Straight to the West to the dynamic harbour of Vancouver to the south and the Cascade Mountains a little further east. Built in 2001, Mulgrave School has 100,00 square feet of spacious, well-equipped classrooms, a 25,000-volume library, a 400-seat theatre, two gymnasiums and campus-wide wifi serving a 1:1 BYOD program for Grade 2 through Grade 12. Mulgrave School is an ideal location for a Google in Education Summit.

If staying in Vancouver proper, then there are a number of excellent options for accommodations, but bear in mind this is across the bridge from West Vancouver and could take up to 30 minutes by car.
Arrivals are recommended from Vancouver International Airport (YVR). Options for transport into the city include taxi, Skytrain, or bus with the first two being the quickest.
Getting to Mulgrave School is nearly impossible via public transportation so we recommend carpooling as parking at Mulgrave can be somewhat limited.
