Over 1,800 tourism professionals from more than 30 countries gathered on May 15, at the Cunard Centre in Halifax, to discover what makes Atlantic Canada a compelling destination for travellers worldwide.

Atlantic Canada Night, organized as part of Rendez-vous Canada 2018, Canada’s signature international tourism marketplace, was a unique opportunity to inspire international travel agents and tour operators to consider Atlantic Canada for their clients’ vacations.

“We are pleased to welcome thousands of travel professionals to Nova Scotia for Rendez-vous Canada and to give them a truly Atlantic Canadian experience,” said Minister of Business Geoff MacLellan. “Events like this one showcase all that Atlantic Canada has to offer, helping us attract more visitors from around the world to our region.”
