Important Notes

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.
  • 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.
  • Priority will be given to buyers from Atlantic Canada’s primary markets, North America, United Kingdom, and Germany.

Buyers from secondary markets may still apply and will be considered on a case-by-case basis taking into consideration the buyer’s compliance with other criterion and space.

Buyer Information

ACS will also include 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.
