BOLDFest 2018

Aug 30th through Sept 2, 2018


Vancouver British Columbia

BOLD hotel guests get a special hotel rate which applies 3 days before, during, and 3 days after the conference, i.e. August 27 - September 5, 2018, based on availability. Guests get complimentary use of the gym, outdoor heated pool, and hot tub.  We encourage BOLD participants to use this beautiful and comfortable TAG approved (gay friendly) hotel, which offers pet-friendly floors, and accessible rooms. It’s where all the BOLD action is and, importantly, booking at the Coast Coal Harbour by APA helps reduce BOLD costs which in turn helps to keep conference fees reasonably priced.  US women, keep in mind these rates (and BOLDFest Conference rates) are in Canadian $$. A great savings to you!
