What is OMCA Marketplace?

WHAT IS OMCA MARKETPLACE?

OMCA Marketplace is an intimate event that provides all group-tourism related companies a chance to connect, network, learn, and secure future group bookings. Tour Operators meet one-on-one with tourism suppliers for three days* of 8-minute appointments for a speedy update on products and services available to their upcoming groups (buyers sit and sellers move). All delegates enjoy evening networking receptions, networking lunches, and educational sessions to boost your knowledge and ablity to navigate the post-pandemic recovery of motor coach and group tourism. No other Marketplace provides the intimate atmosphere of OMCA’s conference, providing the opportunity to touch base with every attendee – with or without a one-on-one appointment.

The group travel industry has been through a lot over the course of the pandemic and this is your chance to have a prominent presence during the resurgeance of North American group travel.
