until 2000, when these presentations were forced to seek new sponsors and, thus, the exhibition changed names. History[edit] The event had been previously sponsored by British American Tobacco (with the branding Benson & Hedges Symphony of Fire), but once tobacco advertising restrictions were legislated by the Canadian federal government in 2000, there were fears that the event would fail to receive sufficient funding to continue operations. The Vancouver
