Release…March 20, 2024

As announced at the closing of our Victoria conference last month, the 61st Annual WCTA Conference and Trade Show will be returning to the RiverRock in Richmond, BC’s largest casino resort, February 11-13, 2025.


A return to the RiverRock in 2025 marks the 5th time the WCTA’s largest annual undertaking will be hosted by this one-of-kind venue.  Previous visits included 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2023.

“Recognizing our economic impact, the City of Richmond really wants us back and has come to the table with significant funding to assist with production costs,” said WCTA Executive Director, Jerry Rousseau.  “With four highly successful shows at the RiverRock from 2018 through 2023, it’s a very good decision and if you’re starting to see a pattern here, you’re not imagining things.”  

2025 event production is just getting started with much more to come.  A program outline is expected by end August with trade show registration starting in September followed by delegate registration opening in October.
