Seller Booths

RVC is an appointment-based event and selling organizations are required to occupy booth space on the marketplace floor in order to meet with buyers.

Below is what is included in Full booth or multiple booths:

  • Draped (black) 8′ back wall and draped (white) 36″ side rails
  • Sign with company name and booth number
  • Draped (black) 6′ table
  • Chairs and a wastebasket.
  • Access to complimentary wireless internet

Below is what is included in half-booths (shared):

  • Draped (black) 8′ back wall and draped (white) 36″ side rails*
  • Sign with company name and booth number
  • Chairs and a wastebasket
  • Access to complimentary wireless internet

*Note: Sellers selecting the non-concurrent type of appointments will share a booth and a draped (black) 6 foot table with their booth partner. Sellers selecting the concurrent type of appointments will share a booth and each organization will have their own 36 inch square table.

Seller organizations registered with a half-booth will be partnered with another seller organization with a half-booth and will share the appointment schedule for that booth. A maximum of 34 appointments will be pre-scheduled for each seller organization.

If both booth partners select concurrent appointments during registration, they will be able to book additional appointments into a full 68 appointment schedule. This means that both half-booth partners may have appointments with two different buyers at the same time.

Concurrent and non-concurrent appointment options apply to half-booth only.

Sellers selecting the non-concurrent type of appointments will share a booth and a 6 foot table with their booth partner. Each booth partner will have an opportunity to receive a maximum of 34 pre-scheduled appointments. Each booth partner will receive their own appointment schedule and booth sign.

Please note that the booth fee structure in place since RVC 2013 remains. Participants in Rendez-vous Canada 2014 who are not current members of the Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC), will incur a higher premium on the cost of the booth space.

Competing effectively in international markets is challenging, yet critical, to the long term success of our industry. The incremental premium to exhibit at Canada’s premier international marketplace is directly invested into making both our industry and the show stronger. First, to remain competitive on the international stage we continue to invest in RVC. These enhancements include enhanced buyer recruitment, an enhanced mobile app to facilitate your sales efforts, an interactive and engaging Canada welcome reception, facilitation of travel media from multiple markets to generate additional awareness and coverage of the event, and to support familiarization trips in order to bring buyers and travel media right to the doorstep of our industry pre and post the event. All this is done with the sole objective of providing an outstanding value to your organization and ensuring international tourism buyers put Canada first. Secondly, the premium is meant to encourage Canadian tourism partners to come members of TIAC, which supports the ongoing advocacy and policy work and is the only national organization representing the full cross-section of Canada’s $84.8 billion tourism industry

In keeping with best international practices, including PowWow in the USA, the tiered booth pricing structure has been devised to encourage TIAC membership, while still making participation possible for all parties.

By joining TIAC today, you will be entitled to the current flat rate booth fee at Canada’s only international tourism marketplace, one that is growing every year, connecting you to new markets.
