- Event Info
On arrival, you’ll find yourself in our virtual lobby where you can access the Marketplace and visit Seller booths, watch videos in the Explore Canada Showcase, check out our sponsors, and visit the Destination Canada (DC) and Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC) Lounges, and find all the help you might need at the Information Desk.
In the Marketplace you can tour and visit the provinces and territories sellers, visit the National sellers and Tourism Partners Pavilion, or drop in on our virtual hosts, the Indigenous Tourism sellers. Each seller booth will spotlight their destination with images and videos, and you can find additional documents and materials in the Resources window. Like a booth? Add it to your favourites so that you can come back later. Each booth has a chat function and the opportunity for video conversations with the booth staff.
In the Explore Canada Showcase you can watch on-demand videos spotlighting our virtual Host, Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada (ITAC), each of the Provinces and Territories, and all of our Gold Sponsors. On Monday, May 17, visit the Showcase for Destination Canada’s Inside Track and Market updates.
