Let Our Clients Tell You Why
"In October 2012, for the first time in 30 years, Arts Umbrella moved Splash, our annual art auction & gala, to CBC Vancouver. The move was risky but we weren't disappointed. In keeping with CBC's rich cultural and artistic vision, the venue proved to be the perfect spot to celebrate 30 years of supporting and inspiring the work of Arts Umbrella. With the support of the attentive and dedicated event staff at CBC Vancouver, the entire studio level was transformed into a stunning art gallery and event space. We were so pleased with the professional technical guidance, lighting design, propos and audio support - which is unique of event spaces in Vancouver. With this kind of support and creative use of space, guests of Splash 2012 were truly in awe."
Director, Special Events, Arts Umbrella
"On behalf of the cast and crew of "Continuum", we would like to take this opportunity to express sincere gratitude for all the help you have provided in making the CBC a viable and versatile filming location for our program. We were able to use the facility on three separate episodes out of ten for a total of 14 days from late January through early May. We staged elaborate sequences, including a futuristic "police station" in the atrium, an "occupy-style" tent city on the plaza with an ensuing riot (both present day and future versions), the aftermath of a "building collapse" in the courtyard and a variety of sets inside studio 40. On one day alone, we had two film crews working simultaneously in different areas of the building.
You and your team never said no to us, no matter how outlandish or logistically challenging the request. Whether it was vacating the news vans from the underground parking lot, securing approval to film inside a mechanical room, transforming the main atrium into a police station of the future (during business hours no less!), providing lights, power, stage space, parking, meeting rooms, green rooms and a wealth of technical expertise, there was no end to the tireless work you did to make it all happen - often with very little lead time. In the increasingly bureaucratic landscape of filming in urban centres, you have provided an oasis of simplicity and are a beacon of elite customer service.
I truly look forward to filming at the CBC again in the very near future."

"The Vancouver Board of Trade is pleased to partner with CBC Vancouver on many initiatives, including our recent Women's Leadership Circle event featuring a screening of the film "Miss Representation". Studio 700 provided the perfect settting for networking in their bright, cheerful atrium and then the studio was a flexible and functional space for our program. Their events team was cooperative and capable of handling our setup and audio-visual requests and excellent to work with. We look forward to the opportunity to work with CBC Vancouver again."

The CBC staff backed up our own event planning with a high quality of service and commitment, which makes for memorable nights with our guests. The CBC technical team, well versed in lighting and sound, was over-accommodating to all our requests.

"...CBC Vancouver was the right choice for Michael Buble's "Home For the Holidays" TV special. Ample production office spaces, dressing rooms, wardrobe & make-up rooms, audio & video control rooms, music recording stage, conference rooms and a huge staging area - everything in one place! The CBC team never let us down. In over 20 years of television production, I've never encountered a more enthusiastic and friendly group, they were genuinely thrilled to be a part of our project."

"When we started looking for voice record space for our upcoming project we wanted a high quality output while keeping our costs low. Upon contacting CBC we were pleasantly surprised by the variety of professional facilities available for voice record - there is even a giant foley room! Our CBC sound technician did a fabulous job; the whole process was smooth and the final product was exactly what we were looking for. An added bonus was the convenient, downtown location of the space. We will absolutely consider using CBC again in the future."
Production Coordinator, Klei Entertainment
