    Guest/Accompanying Persons Policy

    Your individual registration gives you all access to Rendez-vous Canada’s full schedule of events. Unfortunately, guests, colleagues, spouses, family members, VIPs or accompanying persons are not permitted access to any Rendez-vous Canada facilities, events, functions or activities unless they too are registered participants or have been specifically authorized by the host of a function and have approval by Rendez-vous Canada organizing team. Rendez-vous Canada does not sell individual tickets to functions, events, activities, etc.


    Right to Review Participation

    Destination Canada and the Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC) reserves the right to review both an individual organization’s participation at Rendez-vous Canada and the Selection Criteria on an annual basis to ensure it is consistent with current conditions and trends. Appeals, in writing, to decisions can be made to Destination Canada who will appoint three Committee members to review the decision.

    The number of requested appointments and total appointments from the previous year’s Rendez-vous Canada are determining factors for continued participation in Rendez-vous Canada. TIAC, Destination Canada and provincial and territorial coordinators reserve the right to establish performance thresholds as a method of managing access to participation in Rendez-vous Canada.

    As part of the registration process, all participants must agree to adhere to the Policies and Procedures and abide by the Code of Conduct of Rendez-vous Canada.
