Game Changers. Those are the people and businesses who bring their special vision to our downtown and make good things happen. Vancouver’s Downtown Association loves to honor those special people and their efforts each year with eight VDA Game Changer Awards. Six of the awards are chosen by public vote. The other two are chosen by VDA’s Promotions Committee and the Board of Directors. All of the awards represent a vital part of Vancouver’s Downtown Association’s core efforts in our downtown: Design, Promotion, and Economic Development. We love to give credit where credit is due. And, there is so much credit to be shared in our busy, growing downtown.
