What is YVR Alberni?
Objective: Create consumer excitement; promote Vancouver most luxury retailers and hospitality sector to the locals, visitors by showcasing what is available to them in the heart of Vancouver’s “Luxury Zone” – the 30+ high end retailers, restaurants and attractions on the one block area around the 1000 Block Alberni form an area that is considered the most exclusive shopping and dining area in Western Canada
Challenge: The area sometimes referred to as a “Luxury Zone” has not received the community recognition that should be warranted. Although part of the Vancouver Downtown BIA, this exclusive block is lost in such a large BIA and has been unable to develop a brand on its own.
Goal: To develop a brand for the “Luxury Zone” with digital properties and hosts a collection of exclusive events ranging from luxurious jewelry festivals, super car show to seasonal holiday spectaculars. These annual must-see events are featured only on Alberni. #OnlyonAlberni
