The Pacific National Exhibition is an iconic institution in BC, famous for bringing generations of people together to celebrate and build memories.
This 110-year-old, non-profit organization has an annual operating budget of $55 million dollars and generates revenue through four activity streams: the 15-day annual summer Fair which averages 800,000 guests each year, Playland amusement park which welcomes 375,000 guests annually including Fright Nights, and year-round events including family entertainment, concerts, trade shows and film, cultural and community events. The fourth activity stream is park care and facility maintenance. The PNE is proud of the work it does at Hastings Park and has a vibrant team that is passionate about events, guest experience and being the best we can be.
At the PNE, we strive to create an environment that reflects our organization’s core values: Enthusiasm, Excellence and Evolution. With a focus on these core values, we are committed to bringing joy to our guests, our employees, and our community through our mission to “Deliver Memorable Experiences”.
For the past 13 years, the PNE, along with our partner Vancity, have focused on the implementation and growth of our sustainability objective (See addendum 1 following the brief for the Vancity/PNE Story). This has included audits and baseline measurement setting to reporting and awards. It is time to celebrate our achievements in this objective by creating a legacy of art throughout the park.
