TIAC Ready to Unveil Rendez-vous Canada 2016

From April 24-27 the travel and tourism world will gather at the Palais de Congres de Montréal for Rendez-Vous Canada (RVC) 2016. TIAC is proud to return to the role as of producer of RVC in partnership with Destination Canada.  As the national voice of the travel and tourism sector, TIAC is committed to Canada's growth and competitiveness as an international travel destination.  As such TIAC is uniquely positioned to advance the needs of the industry through the production of Canada's largest and premier tourism market place.

This year marks RVC's fortieth anniversary and this year's show is shaping up to be one of the best ever.

While we gather at RVC to celebrate Canada's hospitality and the diversity of our world-class tourism experiences, TIAC understands that the key to RVC's success is the quality of business conducted on the show floor. To date over 26, 000 face to face meetings have been booked with thousands more to be booked in the coming days.

All 449 booths completely sold out, RVC 2016 has broken all attendance records at nearly 1,700 registered delegates.

There are over 1000 delegates representing more than 580 organizations selling Canadian products and services to an incredible 536 international buyers registered from 28 countries.  These record numbers demonstrate the global interest in Canada as a destination of choice.

When it comes to TIAC, membership certainly does have its privileges. In addition to member discount on registration fees, on Monday April 25 TIAC, in partnership with Brewster Travel Canada and Just For Laughs, will be hosting an exclusive Members Only reception for TIAC members and Buyers. This event provides a valuable networking opportunity and access to international buyers outside of the scheduled appointments and in a relaxed setting.
