Rendez-vous Canada (RVC) is Canada’s premier international tourism marketplace lead by Destination Canada, connecting international buyers with Canadian sellers of tourism products.
The event, held annually in a different Canadian city, reunites some 1,500 international tourism industry leaders gathered for a series of speed-dating-style appointments. International buyers seek the best-matched Canadian tourism sellers. The end result: travellers get to choose from the best selection of Canadian experiences.
Rendez-vous Canada has seen the number of participants and the amount of business conducted grow continually since the first marketplace was held. We expect this 41st edition, to be held May 9th-12th, 2017, at the BMO Centre in Calgary, Alberta, to be another successful and memorable event!
