TOTA Attends Rendezvous Canada Travel Trade Marketplace in Montreal
TOTA recently attended Rendezvous Canada Marketplace in Montreal, Quebec. This four day marketplace connects Canadian suppliers with domestic and international buyers. Over 1,400 attendees meet during short 12 minute appointments and further solidify relationships while attending the many social events presented as part of the overall event.
TOTA was represented by Glenn Mandziuk, CEO and Howard Grieve, Travel Trade and Media Specialist. Between Glenn and Howard over 120 appointments were completed. The TOTA Board Chair, Bryan Pilbeam was also in attendance to further promote the region.
As part of the Destination BC team, TOTA and other regions manned their booths within a BC pavilion surrounded by BC supplier booths. New for 2016, Destination BC provided stunning brand imagery for backdrops behind all BC seller booths. All lit and continuous throughout the BC section, the impact of the new backdrop imagery was significant and helped the BC section of the marketplace standout.
Appointments included meetings with key markets both domestically and internationally with a focus on key markets and key accounts. In addition, emerging markets representing significant growth potential were also met with.
Interest ranged from motor coach tour itineraries to FIT to special interest groups and requests for product information are responded to during follow up communications being managed by Howard Grieve.
