The main tools available to connect group tour operators with tourism suppliers are:

  • The OMCA/MCC Group Tour Planner publication
    • Used by OMCA tour operators as a tour planning guidebook all year long
  • Online Membership Directory
    • Full membership list with contact information of decision-makers in each company
  • The OMCA Marketplace Event
    • One-on-one face-to-face appointments with group tour operators looking for products like yours
    • A more intimate than other Marketplace events makes it easy to connect with or without an appointment

The OMCA Marketplace is a lively and intimate conference which provides multiple opportunities for tour operators, motor coach operators and suppliers to connect. Key features of our Marketplace include:

  • 8-minute one-on-one face-to-face appointments between Tour Operators (buyers) and suppliers such as DMO/CVBs, attractions, accommodations, restaurants and charter bus companies.
  • Educational business sessions to keep all delegates in the know about today’s most important topics in the group tourism industry
  • Multiple networking events in the host city for a less formal way to connect with colleagues
  • A buyer incentive program, in partnership with Destination Ontario, to ease the process for buyers to attend
  • Two compact days of appointments to get our delegates back to the office ASAP
  • Weekday conference dates to help delegates maintain a healthy work-life balance

We take pride in our small-scale event because it ensures our delegates can connect with or without an appointment.
