When you think of Vancouver you probably think of Canada. But the U.S. has its own Vancouver—in Seattle—and it’s a great place to do business.

Vancouver, Washington sits on the north bank of the Columbia River directly across from Portland, Oregon. The Pacific Coast is less than 90 miles to the west. The Cascade Mountain Range rises on the east. Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument and Mt. Hood are less than two hours away. The spectacular Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area lies 30 minutes to the east. Vancouver combines the excitement of a major metropolitan area with small-town charm and abundant recreational opportunities. Vancouver’s sister city is Joyo, Japan.

Vancouver targets four industries: high-tech, manufacturing, professional services and wind. Washington's tax environment, low cost of living and quality of life are major factors in businesses moving to Vancouver. Interstate 5 and 205 also make the area a convenient one for trade, enabling easy travel to Portland, California, Seattle and Canada. The Portland International Airport (PDX) is within 12 minutes travel time from downtown Vancouver, and offers daily non-stops to the Pacific Rim, as well as most major airports in the U.S.

If this sounds like next stop on your company’s expansion, or if you are already doing business in Vancouver and need an alternative to traditional office space, consider the benefits of a virtual office. A virtual office gives you a prestigious business address in Vancouver. In many locations you can even get your name listed in the lobby directory.

Even though you don’t physically work from a virtual office, you can go to a physical location for client meetings in a conference room for a small hourly fee. You can also use the virtual office location as a client drop off or pick up point, and a place to receive your mail and packages. The virtual office in Vancouver also comes equipped with a business support center.

You can rent virtual office space in Vancouver for as little as $75 from Davinci Virtual. Davinci has virtual offices in Vancouver at 4400 NE 77th Avenue. This is just minutes from the Vancouver Harbour Water Airport and Downtown Vancouver. So what are you waiting for?
