Buyer Incentive Program

OMCA Marketplace: November 4th – 6th
Caesars Windsor

The 2024 Buyer Incentive Program is provided in partnership with Destination Ontario.

Tour Operators who package and sell travel to groups love using OMCA Marketplace to do months of industry data collection in just a few days. After meeting with over 100 tourism suppliers (destinations, attractions, restaurants, hotels, etc.) our Tour Operators (Buyers) have all the information required to build their book for the months and years to come. While its value is undeniable, we understand that Tour Operators have limitations that may prevent them from being able to attend our conference.

OMCA has developed a Buyer Incentive Program to make it as easy as possible for Buyers to attend OMCA Marketplace. These incentives include:

  • Free Registration
  • Full Hotel Rebate*
  • Travel Cost Rebate (up to $200)**

* The hotel rebate program is only available to OMCA Tour Operator members
** The travel rebate program is only available to NEW Buyer members

Free Registration

OMCA Buyers get in for free (with a minimum 80 appointments). That includes two days of appointments, an afternoon of education sessions, lunches, breakfasts, and an all-delegate evening reception!
You don’t have to be a member to get in for free.

Buyer Hotel Rebate Program*

* The hotel rebate program is only available to OMCA Tour Operator members

In addition to your complimentary registration, OMCA member Tour Operators receive complimentary hotel accommodations.  To qualify for the hotel rebate program, please note the following conditions:

  • Appointment-taking delegates are eligible for a hotel accommodation rebate, room only (up to a maximum of three [3] nights).
    • Appointment-taking delegates must take a full set of appointments with a minimum of 80 appointments over the 2-day marketplace.
    • If you choose not to have a full set of appointments or, alternatively, do not meet the minimum of 80 appointments, there will be a charge to attend.
  • Additional delegates (eg. a second person to share your appointments) are not eligible for the complimentary hotel rebate program.
  • Buyers must complete or update their online profile (available at the time of registration).
  • Buyers must book their hotel room using the official link provided below and submit receipts for the rebate program after the event.   
  • For complete details, questions or concerns, please contact Laura Huether at

Not a member?
Non-members do not receive a full hotel rebate, however, if you are new to OMCA Marketplace then you may qualify for the travel rebate. Keep in mind that membership starts at only $270/year and its benefits far surpass its cost. Click here for more details.

Travel Cost Rebate (up to $200)**

** The travel rebate program is only available to NEW Buyer members. Existing buyers would have already received this incentive in 2022 or 2023.

If you are an OMCA Tour Operator member and did not attend OMCA Marketplace as a buyer in 2022 or 2023, you qualify for OMCA’s travel incentive. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to come to our Marketplace and experience how great it is for your business.

Whether travelling by plane, train, bus, or automobile – OMCA will provide up to $200 CAD towards your travel expenses. Simply keep your receipts or record your mileage (paid at $0.70/km) post-event and send them to, and OMCA will cover your travel costs, up to $200 CAD.
