2014 Canada’s West Marketplace to be held in Canmore

The 27th annual Canada’s West Marketplace®  trade show will be held in Canmore, Alberta, November 17 to 20, 2014.  

More than 300 Alberta and British Columbia tourism suppliers are expected to gather to meet with more than 120 international tour operators and wholesalers from Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas.  

“Canada’s West Marketplace is the most effective way for Alberta and British Columbia tourism suppliers to present their products, experiences and services to tourism buyers from around the world,” said Bruce Okabe, Chief Executive Officer at Travel Alberta. “Alberta’s partnership with Destination BC presents our industry partners with a unique opportunity to grow their businesses on an international scale. We look forward to inviting tour operators to join us in picturesque Canmore in the Canadian Rockies as we showcase the authentic experiences in breathtaking landscapes that Alberta has to offer.”

Each year, the trade show alternates locations between Alberta and BC.
