Enter The Tech Wonderland National contest

[Editor’s note added November 25th: We are very disappointed to inform you that Best Buy Tech Wonderland is unable to go ahead, under the new provincial restrictions in place until December 7th.

Our purpose for the event remains: to bring some holiday magic to our home city and to support the Boys and Girls Clubs of South Coast BC. To bring this to life, we have all of our best elves reimagining it as a virtual experience, so that you may be able to enjoy Tech Wonderland from your living room, through the power of technology (we are Best Buy after all). Expect to hear from us soon.]

 

Best Buy created a holiday experience celebrating the magic of the season, The Best Buy Tech Wonderland, where holiday tradition meets modern technology. Taking place on the grounds of the PNE in Vancouver, BC, in late November visitors and a carload of family / members of your household unit would take a magical guided tour featuring incredible displays, classic holiday tunes, epic eats, fun contests, and so much more.

What is Best Buy’s Tech Wonderland

The journey would begin in our Tunnel of Lights, festively illuminated by thousands of dazzling Christmas lights. Within the tunnel, visitors could drive past classic Woodward’s Windows and our Best Buy Memory Boxes, where classic holiday traditions are brought to life with a modern twist with the help of the latest and greatest tech from Sony, Google, Xbox, and more.

Upon exiting the tunnel, they would stop by our Santa Car Photo Booth and take a fun picture with Santa Claus himself, while sitting safely in the car. Afterwards, they could proceed to our Gaming Demo,where professional gamers would be on hand to show off the next generation of Xbox consoles. Finally, they could take in a classic holiday TV show or animated short at our Holiday Drive-in Theatre before heading home.

The Best Buy team worked closely with Vancouver Coastal Health to ensure that Best Buy Tech Wonderland could be experienced safely. After reviewing ongoing Vancouver Costal Health and Fraser Health restrictions, we believed this event could be enjoyed safely, as everyone is required to stay within their vehicle at all times, limiting any social interaction.

Thanks to our tech sponsors and local businesses


We are grateful to many organizations that helped to make this event memorable including Canada Place at the Port of Vancouver for lending the Woodward boxes and The Big Steel Boxes for supplying shipping containers used in the onsite displays.

Also we want to thank our tech sponsors, especially Sony, Google, and Xbox, for contributing to the event and supplying some of the prizes for our contests.

    With all the time spent at home and no plans to go anywhere anytime soon, the Breville Barista Touch Automatic Espresso Machine with Frother & Coffee Grinder featured in Festive Feast would help make this holiday season magical!

  5. What a great tech wonderland this is! I spotted Techie in images 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 11! So many great choices for gifts for others and myself but I’d first go with the KitchenAid Artisan Tilt Head Stand Mixer – 5 Qt – 325 Watt in Pistachio Green!

  6. I was able to find Techie in slides 1,2,3,4,5,7 and 11!

    Right now a Pixel book would really come in handy around the house as my laptop died and our only computer is a desktop upstairs. We would use it for video calls with my family who’s spread all over north America right now.

    • Cute little Techie appears in slides 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 11. I would also love to win a Sony 85″ 4K UHD HDR LED Android Smart TV as my older ten year old Sony 40 inch can’t download any of the smart apps. I want to be a “smart senior”.

  17. I see an elf in slides 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 11 but its hard to say they are all Techie in a blue shirt. I would say slide 3 Festive Feast the elf definitely has a blue shirt and is Techie for sure. Now as for technology that would help make the season more magical? I love the Nanoleaf Hexagon panel lights – they would definitely help us serve up some cheer in our living room!

  18. The elf is in images 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 11. I would love to have a Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ 12.4″ 256GB Android Tablet w/ Snapdragon 865 Plus 8-Core Processor.

  22. Techie the Elf is in photos 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 11. I would love the Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo Switch is great for multiplayer games. Which is great when all the kids are stuff in the house this winter.

  25. Techie the blue shirt elf appears in slides 1,2,3,4,5,7,11. I love slide 5.

  27. Techie the Blue Shirt Elf is in photos 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 11. The Sony 85″ 4K UHD HDR LED Android Smart TV would be incredible, but honestly, anything unexpected that’s fun or useful would be so much better than the unexpected surprise that turned all our lives upside down this year. It’s likely impossible, but if everyone affected by this awful virus could get an unexpected surprise, that would be the best.

  28. Techie the Blue Shirt Elf is in slides 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 11. I would love the Sony 85″ 4K UHD HDR LED Android Smart TV for my family
