New Virtual Attendee Option
Join your ARIN colleagues from your home, office or hospital in 2016. This year ARIN will be hosting the entire Spring Convention LIVE from Vancouver. This option is available to both members and non-members who would like to participate in the event, but cannot travel to the meeting. All educational sessions will be broadcast live at the time of the lecture and then hosted online for one month for those who cannot attend the live broadcast or for those who would like to watch a lecture again. CNE credits will be awarded and virtual attendees can still ask questions and particpate with the speakers as if they were in Vancouver with us.
If you have a group of nurses or a department that would like to participate virtually please contact ARIN Headquarters for special pricing and instructions.

Traveling Tips for Vancouver
- Cell Phone Usage - Get a data and long distance plan before leaving home. Are you one of many of convention attendees traveling from the U.S. or internationally into Canada? Take Note: Roaming charges and data plan fees for cell phones (especially smart phones like the iPhone or the Android) and tablets like the iPad can be costly, with prices spiking as high as several dollars per minute. Before catching your flight to Canada, contact your local cell phone carrier to get information about special pricing plans for calls, text messaging and Internet usage outside your home country. If you use a smart phone, ask your carrier about certain settings such as "airplane mode" that may help you save money on usage.
- Banking - Debit or credit cards are the most convenient means of getting cash at the many 24-hour-access automated banking machines. As in the U.S. and Europe these machines accept cards with Plus, Interact and Cirrus symbols and there is one on almost every block in downtown Vancouver. Many Canadian businesses accept U.S. currency and travellers cheques. International currency exchanges are available at the airport and at all the banks in the city. Major credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, American Express), are generally accepted by Canadian businesses. The U.S. dollar is currently valued at. $1.09 (as of 7/1/2015)
- If you are travelling by land, sea or air between the United States and Canada, you must present a valid passport. If you are a U.S. citizen looking for information on passports, please visit the U.S. Department of State website.
