Planning your travel

When to arrive

The 2020 Summit officially begins on Friday morning (September 25th) at 8:30 AM.

Please plan to arrive by Thursday evening (September 24th) so that you don't miss a minute of this amazing event.

When to leave

The 10th anniversary summit finale flashmob will take place in downtown Vancouver late Sunday morning (September 27th). We expect the event to be over by 1 PM. As international flights require you to be at the airport three hours prior to departure, please give yourself ample time to be in the flashmob by booking your return flight to depart after 4 PM. If you are staying longer and want to explore, hang around for a casual group lunch and then join Sabeya in doing some sightseeing in Vancouver.

Location

The 2020 Shimmy Mob Summit is being held at this hotel:

Inn at the Quay (website)
900 Quayside Drive
New Westminster (Vancouver Metro), BC  V3M 6G1
Tel: +1 800 663 2001 (+1 604 520 5645)

Should you wish to book a room at the summit hotel, mention the code "Shimmy Mob Summit" for the special group rate ($199 CAD). This special rate was negotiated for rooms with double beds (up to four people per room). The number of rooms at this rate is limited and there is a deadline for this offer. Please reserve early to ensure your accommodation on site.

Transportation

Getting from the airport to the site hotel

There are a couple of options:

  • Via Taxi (30 min drive) $50-$75 (CAD); or
  • Via Skytrain (1+ hr) $15 (CAD)

Traveling alone or with others

While the Skytrain may be the more cost-effective option, it is slower, as you will need to change trains at the halfway point in downtown Vancouver. It's an easy commute, however, if you travel light and don't have more than what you can carry. The Skytrain stop closest to the hotel is "New Westminster" and it's a 5-min walk to the Summit site hotel.

If you are traveling or meeting up with other participants at arrival, sharing a Taxi, Uber or Lyft ride may be more economical (as well as much quicker).

At the Border

What to know about customs

Whether you have a Canadian passport or not, please be advised that some items that may be legal where you live, may not be legal to bring into Canada. Learn more here.
