Guest/Accompanying Persons Policy

With the exception of the specific authorization by the host of a function and the approval of the individual by Rendez-vous Canada, no guests, spouses, “VIPs” or accompanying persons are permitted access to functions. In addition, no accompanying and/or non-registered person is permitted access to other Rendez-vous Canada facilities. Rendez-vous Canada does not sell tickets to its functions, tours, etc.

Right to Review Participation

Destination Canada and the Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC) reserves the right to review both an individual organization’s participation at Rendez-vous Canada and the Selection Criteria on an annual basis to ensure it is consistent with current conditions and trends. Appeals, in writing, to decisions can be made to Destination Canada who will appoint three Committee members to review the decision.

The number of requested appointments and total appointments from the previous year’s Rendez-vous Canada are determining factors for continued participation in Rendez-vous Canada. TIAC, Destination Canada and Provincial/Territorial Coordinators reserve the right to establish performance thresholds as a method of managing access to participation in Rendez-vous Canada.

Buyers who schedule fewer than 40 appointments and buyers that cancel 10% or more of their appointments on site (or no-shows, cancellations without valid reasons) may not be re-invited for participation at Rendez-vous Canada.

All participants must agree to adhere to the “Policies and Procedures” of Rendez-vous Canada, a publication as part of the registration process.
