Host city named for 2019 Atlantic Canada Showcase

February 1, 2019 – St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador

Newfoundland and Labrador’s capital city of St. John’s has been selected to host Atlantic Canada Showcase, October 6-8, 2019.

Atlantic Canada Showcase (ACS) is a biennial buyer-seated tourism marketplace designed especially for the motorcoach, group, Fully Independent Travel and specialty travel industry. The event entails three impactful days of pre-scheduled business-to-business meetings, networking events and educational sessions that will allow international buyers and regional sellers an opportunity to experience, meet and grow business with tourism product and service providers from all four Atlantic Provinces.

The ACS event, which rotates throughout the Atlantic Provinces, was last held in New Brunswick in 2016 and hosted 69 buyers from around the world and 122 sellers of tourism products and services from Atlantic Canada. A committee comprised of private and public representatives from each of the Atlantic Provinces has been working diligently to ensure that the 2019 event surpasses all expectations.

Funding for Atlantic Canada Showcase is provided by the Atlantic Canada Agreement on Tourism (ACAT). ACAT is a nine-member, pan-Atlantic, international marketing initiative comprised of the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, the four tourism industry associations in Atlantic Canada and the provincial departments responsible for tourism in the provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
