Volunteer with Rendez-vous Canada 2018

RVC 2018 in Halifax, Nova Scotia

Rendez-vous Canada (RVC) is Canada’s premier international tourism marketplace. Every year, the event brings together over 1,800 tourism professionals from around the world to meet one-on-one to promote, buy, and sell the best of Canada’s travel products. RVC is co-managed and produced by Destination Canada and the Tourism Industry Association of Canada in partnership with the host destination.

The 42nd annual RVC will be hosted by Tourism Nova Scotia at the Halifax Convention Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia from May 13 to 16, 2018. This marks the first time Nova Scotia has hosted the event since 2002!
