Bienvenue Québec is an essential event for the Quebec group tourism industry. Created in 1989, this trade show based on the Quebec tourism supply has revolutionized the way we bargain group tourism products and services by introducing new business practises, mainly for motorcoach transportation businesses.
This commercial market unique to Quebec helps North American and International travel agencies, receptive agencies, and tour operators familiarize themselves with the entire tourism supply (both at the individual and group level) with suppliers from Quebec, Eastern Canada and the North East of the United States.
With over 500 participants, Bienvenue Québec has successfully developed a "speed dating" formula for the tourism industry leading to 8000 business meetings over three days. This formula, consisting of 8-minute predetermined and computerized interviews, enables tourism product and service suppliers to sell themselves and "seduce" travel agencies, receptive agencies, and tour operators to include them as a destination in their travel packages.
For over 31 years, Bienvenue Québec has aimed to:
Provide buyers with the opportunity to meet suppliers of tourism products and services from Quebec, Ontario and the Maritimes, during three days of planned activities;
Increase the training, networking and promotional activities of Quebec tourism businesses and thus contribute to the growth and vitality of the Quebec tourism industry;
Increase the number and scale of new Quebec products and services globally;
Contribute to reinforcing the Quebec destination as a quality, authentic and appealing tourism experience.
In addition to being a keystone of business development for the Quebec tourism industry, Bienvenue Québec is the perfect place for meetings, exchanges, networking activities, and training.
