Atlantic Canada Showcase Buyer Criteria

If you would like to be considered as a Buyer participant for Atlantic Canada Showcase, please first take a moment and review the Buyer Criteria below. Please note there are a limited number of seats available and all applications may not be accepted.

A Buyer is a business or entity that sells groups, F.I.T. or specialty travel and has an interest in or currently sells Atlantic Canada as a destination.  Atlantic Canada Showcase (ACS) is an opportunity to experience tourism products and services from all four Atlantic Provinces.

Buyer Criteria

Buyers attending Atlantic Canada Showcase will have an interest in Atlantic Canada: to expand an existing tour to include additional provinces, and/or to update existing tours to include new Atlantic Canada products.

  • All buyers must qualify for attendance; qualification is determined by the information provided during the registration process.
  • All buyers must comply with the regulations which apply to them in the region where they are domiciled.
  • Buyers from North America, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Japan and China will be given first preference.  Buyers from other countries may still apply for review.
  • New buyers must participate in a brief onsite orientation session.
  • All buyers agree to complete a periodic, confidential survey regarding their product purchases attributed to participation at ACS Marketplace.
  • All buyers must agree to adhere to the rules and regulations of ACS.
  • Online Travel Agency buyers must be in business for 3 years specializing in online reservations for tourism products before being considered.
  • Second delegates: More than one representative per buyer organization may be allowed to attend ACS provided the second representative is a qualified buyer and an explanation is provided for review and approval by ACS. Where two delegates are accepted, each buyer delegate from that organization will be required to take their own set of appointments.

The above Buyer requirements may be subject to change with review of each upcoming ACS event.

The schedule includes 2-3 days of meetings, networking events and sessions. ACS will end with Atlantic Canada Night, an evening that will provide you with one lasting impression of all four Atlantic Provinces.  New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island await you on Atlantic Canada’s beautiful coast.

The Buyer registration fee is $500 CDN plus HST (currently 15%) and includes business sessions, accommodations, transportation, all ACS hosted meals, functions, activity tours and pre/post FAM tours. This fee may be subject to change with review of each upcoming ACS event.

Buyers are responsible for booking flights to and from Atlantic Canada Showcase and should only do so once their registration has been confirmed.

 

Buyers are reminded to ensure their passports are up-to-date and their airline ticket matches the name on their passport.

Reimbursement for airfare (up to a set amount) will be paid onsite on the final day of ACS after confirmation of full participation.
