Why You Need to Attend the OMCA Marketplace!

The OMCA Marketplace is the premier event in Canada for North American packaged travel. Over a period of four days, buyers and sellers will meet face-to-face during a series of 7-minute pre-scheduled appointments – that’s thousands of appointments in total!

Marketplace provides thousands of one-on-one appointments in total for tour operators and tourism industry suppliers from across North America; over 95% of our delegates book business on the floor. Marketplace is a cost-effective way for buyers and sellers to meet, to exchange information and develop new business.

Marketplace also features education sessions focusing on important topics and issues surrounding the industry, targeting what matters most.

Be sure to take part in our networking events, including the Sunday Night Ice Breaker, the Monday Night Reception, the Final Night Party, all-delegate meal functions, and more!
