We ask that you set aside August 26th and join us for the awards ceremony and launch party. You will be presented with a red carpet, media wall, local press, photography, and a general feeling of importance. We want to create vibe that makes you proud to be amongst the best in Vancouver. A marquee DJ will be announcing the awards and you will be presented with an engraved award and given time to speak on stage in front of the audience, media, and press.



Looks Like we belong to "The best sports blog there is"...way to go Brian..SPEECH...SPEEECH!!!

Great stuff!

Congratulations Brian!

Will be there on the 26th to be a part of it all. I was going to the conference weekend prior to CC winning.

Great job, B!

Thanks everyone, and thanks to all of you who voted. All the writers, from Tom Benjamin, Justine Galo, Jason Kurylo, Aaron Davis. The Mods of the board, Cornuck, Jovocop...you guys are stellar at keeping this place in check. And of course anyone who visits this place to read and talk about the Canucks, all of you deserve my gratitude.

A special thanks also to Kevin Kinghorn, Tina Rogers and Nicole VanZanten from the Vancouver Canucks who have included this site in their social media programs and helped raise our profile.

Here's to and even better year in 2012!

So I hope Brian still gets an award from Urban Culture Conference. After getting people to vote for the blog and then suddenly not have the big night happen was a little weird.

Today, my Visa was refunded for the conference passes and received an email:
Invoice

Event Name: Urban Culture Conference + Awards
Organizer: Urban Culture Conference
Order Number: 45011121
Refund Amount: C$139.78
Note from Organizer: We are sorry to announce that have to cancel the 2011 Urban Culture Conference + Awards. Please see this blog post for more details:


Apparently they had not enough sponsors and/or interest to get this going. I say their marketing team and sales team just didn't know what their doing. They got the word out before the NHL playoffs started, which meant they had more than 5 months to get their shit together for the event. It's too bad, I was hoping to get to know the urban culture scene more in the city. I just hope all the award winners do get their awards from the conference despite it being cancelled.
