Banff to Host Canada's West MarketplaceĀ® Trade Show


The 25th annual Canada’s West Marketplace® trade show will be held in Banff, November 26-29, 2012.

More than 300 Alberta and British Columbia tourism suppliers are expected to gather in the Canadian Rockies next year to meet with more than 125 international tour operators and wholesalers from Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas.  

“For nearly a quarter of a century, Canada’s West Marketplace has proven to be the most effective way for Alberta and British Columbia tourism operators to present their products and services to tourism wholesalers from around the world,” said Bruce Okabe, CEO, Travel Alberta. “Banff is Canada’s first National Park as well as the world’s finest, and we look forward to hosting the world next year at the stunning ‘Castle in the Rockies’ – The Fairmont Banff Springs.”

Established in 1989, the Canada’s West Marketplace trade show is a partnership between Travel Alberta and Tourism British Columbia, as part of the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism & Innovation, and is an annual forum for promoting Western Canada tourism products to international and domestic tour operators and buyers. Each year, the trade show alternates locations between Alberta and British Columbia.
