Travel Trade

Selling Edmonton as the gateway to the North, the Rocky Mountains and beyond

Travel Trade are your ambassadors for Canada’s northernmost major city. As the gateway to the northern Rockies and Canada’s north, Travel Trade works closely with Edmonton International Airport to develop and support direct air access. We also work to sell Edmonton and its experiences to global tour operators in Canada, China, Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, the United States and emerging markets, by leading familiarization tours and attending international sales missions and marketplaces. When local experience providers, attractions and hotels are export-ready, we work with them to showcase their offerings to our global markets.

We Activate Global Interest

We sell export-ready Edmonton experiences by putting them in the spotlight at sales missions and international marketplaces where we meet with tour operators from around the world.

We host tour operators in Edmonton on familiarization (FAM) tours so that they can try out the experiences for themselves.
