Rendez-Vous Canada coming to Aikens

Nov. 19, 2009


Tourism Industry Association of CanadaEach year the CTC (Canadian Tourism Commission) and the  TIAC (Tourism Industry Association of Canada) puts on a huge event showcasing Canada's tourism wares and services to international markets.  These international buyers come to Canada to learn about and book different destinations for their travelers. Hosted by Travel Manitoba in Winnipeg, May 2010's edition of Rendez-Vous will feature hundreds of Canadian products and destinations to tourism operators during the four day event.

These folks represent a large body of world-savvy travelers, most of which see Canada as the epitome of true outdoor adventures. Not surprising that Aikens joins up with RVC to show off its untamed beauty.

Following the four day marketplace meetings, select operators are invited to go on several post-conference trips. Aikens Lake Wilderness Lodge is proud to have been chosen as one of these signature experiences. Guests will arrive the day after the show (May 13) and stay with us for two days. We will offer them a truly unique experience, by offering to them a chance to not only angle for big fish, but to re-trace the footsteps of the area's pioneers: The Voyageurs. Through authentic interpretation, these lucky people will learn about life in a canoe and how the fur trade laid the cornerstones in colonizing the West. We'll teach them how to prepare and cook their own shorelunch. We'll develop fun-filled and truly hands-on activities that will have them leaving Aikens with a head full of totally Canadian experiences. We're excited to be part of this showcase! We'll be sure to write about this big event in months to come. Now, let's all pray for an early thaw! To view Rendez-Vous' website please go to :
