What Our Members Say
As a startup that came about due to the pandemic, I wanted to be part of a group of like-minded professionals that were putting a voice forward to the government. Although I have only been a member for a few months, I have already seen an enormous ROI, 1 - participating in the upcoming Rendez Canada, 2 - Being allowed to participate in the masterclass: Regenerative Event Management Program. This qualification will provide Reps4Rent with an advantage over our competitors when bidding for events. My personal growth and thought process has already been influenced after one session. I highly recommend professionals in the travel industry to join TIAC.
