October 25th:
Schedules are released and manual scheduling opens

Your MyOMCA portal will give you access to your full appointment schedule and you will have the opportunity to manually request appointments with delegates that you hoped to meet with, but were not scheduled with. During manual scheduling, delegates must have matching appointment availability and requests must be manually accepted to be officially added to the schedule.

NOTE: With the use of the OMCA mobile app, manual changes to your appointment schedule can be made up to and including the days of the event. Any changes must be approved by both delegates involved in the appointment.

November 8th:
Virtual Marketplace Appointments

Buyers will meet with sellers that were only able to attend virtually. This low impact day gives sellers a chance to meet with tour operators even if they have too little time, staff or budget to attend OMCA Marketplace in Niagara Falls, ON.

November 13th – 16th:
Marketplace LIVE in Niagara Falls!

Finally back to our roots! This four day conference kicks off with the Sunday Night Evening Event and is followed by three days of appointments. See the full schedule at https://www.omca.com/events/2022-omca-marketplace/schedule-of-events/
