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 two 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 successful 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.


  • Buyers: Tour Operators who are either based in Ontario or book trips into Ontario and Canada.
  • Sellers: Tourism Suppliers (attractions, accommodations, destinations, tour services, etc.) from Canada and U.S., mostly from the central and eastern regions.
  • Coach Operators who own or manage a charter and/or scheduled service buses attend for the networking and education sessions. Some coach operators meet with buyers to discuss the charters available for tour groups.
  • Products & Services companies who provide vital services to the motor coach tourism industry such as bus sales, parts, services, marketing and more.


Hosted at the Delta Marriott near Pearson Airport on the border of Toronto and Mississauga, from December 11-13, registered delegates will have access to evening events, one-on-one B2B appointments, meals, and education sessions. See the full schedule at https://omca.com/events/marketplace/schedule-of-events/.

OMCA Marketplace prides itself on its quality buyers and appointments. Sellers can expect between 20-25 appointments** or to meet with roughly 50% of the attending buyer companies, based our traditional ratios. The intimate nature of this event makes it easy to connect with prospects even when you don’t have a scheduled appointment.

**There are multiple factors that play into the number of appointments in your schedule, most of which require specific action from the delegates. Be sure to read all Marketplace communications closely to know how to maximise your schedule for a successful event.


The 2023 Marketplace will have only 2 days of appointments instead of 3! We know how valuable your time is and want you to get back to operations asap. All sellers will have appointments on both days.
