In a joint statement between Destination Canada and the Tourism Industry Association of Canada, a decision was announced to cancel this year’s Rendez-vous Canada tourism trade show, which was scheduled to take place in Quebec City from 5-8MAY.
“We cannot stress enough how much thought has been put into making this decision. Rendez-vous Canada is very much a lifeline for the Canadian tourism sector – generating leads and sales with key markets around the world, but the health, welfare and safety of our delegates is paramount,” said Ben Cowan-Dewar, Chair of the Board, Destination Canada.
Organizers say they are working through the process of refunds for those registered and will follow up with next steps and details in the coming days.
Rendez-vous Canada is now scheduled to return next year from 16-19MAY, 2021 in Edmonton, Alberta.
