National Association of College Wind and Percussion Instructors

NACWPI 2018 National Conference

October 11-13, 2018

JW Marriott Parq Vancouver

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

The National Association of College Wind and Percussion Instructors' 2018 National Conference was held October 11-13, 2018, at the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, in conjunction with the 2018 National Conferences of the College Music Society (CMS) and the Association for Technology in Music Instruction (ATMI).


Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is consistently rated one of the best airports in North America. There are more than a dozen international flights in and out of YVR every day, with 22 bound for the United States. View a list of airlines that serve the airport, and view a list of flight times to Vancouver from cities around the world.

Vancouver International Airport is approximately 8.5 miles from the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver. The hotel does not provide shuttle service to and from the airport and, as of late April 2018, Uber and Lyft services are not yet available in Vancouver. Thus, it is easiest to transfer to the hotel by taxi (@ $30 CAD). Alternatively, attendees may take the Canada Line SkyTrain from the international terminal to the Yaletown-Roundhouse Station (@ $9.10 CAD) and walk 10 minutes via Pacific Blvd. to reach the hotel (walk towards the large stadium, the hotel is located just in front of it). A useful map of the city metro system may be found here.
