The greater Vancouver Board of Trade has announced that they will be bringing former U.S. President Barack Obama to town for a speaking engagement on March 5th.
The event, which is billed as A Conversation with President Barack Obama, will occur at the Vancouver Convention Centre on Tuesday, March 5th, 2019. The speech will follow an appearance at Calgary’s Saddledome earlier in the day.
Former first lady Michelle Obama visited Vancouver last year for a Board of Trade speech, and will return on March 24th as part of the promotional tour for her recent memoir, Becoming.
Prices for the Barack Obama event have not yet been released, but members of the Board of Trade will have the first chance to purchase tickets, starting on January 25th. If any tickets remain after the members-only pre-sale, they will be made available to the general public on February 1st at 10:00am.
