Buyer Registration

Rendez-vous Canada is a by-invitation-only opportunity for qualified Buyers of Canadian travel products to explore the entire Canadian tourism ecosystem, get inspired, forge new contacts and strengthen partnerships across Canada’s tourism industry. Here, they’ll get an insider’s perspective on Canadian tourism and where it’s headed, expand their network, learn new and creative ways to experience and market Canada from coast to coast to coast, and return home armed with the tools they need to market and sell Canada with confidence.

Qualified Buyers are invited to attend based on recommendations made by Destination Canada, the Tourism Industry Association of Canada, industry representatives, Sellers participating in Rendez-vous Canada, and by Canadian municipal, provincial and territorial tourism officers.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions on gathering and international travel, RVC+ will be a virtual only event.

Invitations to register will be sent to qualified and approved Buyers starting in early 2021. If you have attended Rendez-vous Canada in the past and have not received an invitation to Rendez-vous Canada+, please visit the Contact us section to find the Destination Canada representative in your region.

If you are a new Buyer, please review the selection criteria for additional information.
