Due to the pandemic and health and safety guidelines, the Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC) has made the decision to host this year's Rendez-Vous Canada (RVC) fully virtual. As a result, they are launching the RVC + platform.
RVC + is an opportunity to share with travel trade operators our love of Canada and our unique and distinctive indigenous cultures in order to foster a strong and vibrant tourism economy in this country.
The basics of RVC are the same. RVC + will continue to be Canada's leading international travel trade show and will allow ITAC and its members to pursue new opportunities and increase interaction with distribution network partners during these challenging times" - ITAC
