Note that registration to attend Rendez-Vous Canada is by invitation only. For registration inquiries, please contact the Rendez-vous Canada Project Office.

Once you’ve received an invitation by email to register, you need to create a profile and login to My RVC.

Who is eligible to attend as a Seller or Tourism Partner?

Qualified sellers or tourism partners of Canadian travel products and services are eligible to register for RVC by invitation only.  Selling organizations are selected using guidelines established by Rendez-vous Canada in consultation with provinces, territories and private sector professionals who participate in Rendez-vous Canada.

The nomination and approval process of selling organizations, as well as the assignment of booth size, and, if applicable, booth partners is determined by their respective Provincial/Territorial Representatives.

The RVC Project Office will send invitations to qualified and approved Sellers and Tourism Partners starting in November 2016, along with login codes for registration.

What are the fees to participate as a Seller or Tourism Partner and what’s included?

Please note the new registration and fee structure for RVC 2017. This includes adjustments to registration (booth and delegate) fees for members as well as non-members of the Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC).

Since 2013, registration fees have remained relatively constant while the cost of living (CPI – consumer price index) has continued to rise.  Over this time, RVC absorbed these increases and therefore adjustments to fees (member and non-member) are now necessary.

Changes to the registration fees for non-members of the Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC) include both a rate differential on booth fees and the introduction of a non-member delegate registration fee.

Note:     In order to receive the TIAC member rate for registration and booth fees, selling organizations’ membership status must be in good standing at the time of registration and valid until May 31, 2017. Organizations with memberships expiring before May 31, 2017 should renew their membership prior to registering if they wish to take advantage of member discounts.
