Programming


AXS by YVR brings together a global community around the human, business, and technological aspects of innovation.  The goal is to foster dialogue and cross-cultural collaboration around the airport’s role in advancing human mobility. Drawing both from within the industry and beyond, YVR has partnered with the design firm TEAGUE to co-design a provocative program featuring thought leaders, intimate sessions, and dynamic social events in the heart of downtown Vancouver.
