2017 Rendez-Vous Canada trade floor

Every year, Destination Canada hosts Rendez-vous Canada+, the country’s largest marketplace for tourism products and services. The annual event brings together tour operators and wholesalers from Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America and North America; all are eager to find new products, services and packages featuring Alberta’s authentic experiences during pre-arranged appointments with sellers.

Marketplaces are a valuable platform for relationship building for Canadian tourism suppliers who have export-ready product and are serious about working in the international marketplace. RVC+ is a significant event for the Canadian tourism sector—providing critical connections to international sellers that will support the recovery and resilience of the tourism sector in the months and years ahead.

RVC+ 2022

Destination Canada and TIAC will be hosting a hybrid format of Rendez-vous Canada+ (RVC+) in 2022. The new format will bring back in-person attendance, while also incorporating a virtual component, creating opportunities for more of industry to engage and make appointments with international buyers, travel trade media and Destination Marketing Companies.

Taking place from May 24 – 27 2022, the in-person portion of RVC+ will be a buyer-seated marketplace in Toronto, Ontario. This will be Canada’s RVC and hosted by Destination Canada and the Tourism Industry Association of Canada, creating an exciting opportunity to welcome international buyers back to Canada and showcase the beauty of this country, as well as the truly meaningful travel experiences on offer across each province and territory.

Check out the RVC website or contact your local Destination Development Manager to learn more.
