Newly introduced this year will be Business Connections, where attendees can set up meetings with other businesses or community representatives to sit down, one on one, and discuss their products/services and build constructive relationships.
To be offered a table in the Business Connections we would require that delegates offer real business opportunities for discussion at the event. These business opportunities can include immediate/upcoming/future projects, economic development opportunities, available service/products, or potential partnerships.
The opportunities are endless in terms of which businesses or communities would be interested in taking part in the IBC, however, the following is a list of potential ideas of who would see value:
- Indigenous and non-indigenous community decision makers looking to expand their business portfolio, conducting economic development, have upcoming projects, looking for products/services, or want to build partnerships and relationships
- Private sector Indigenous and non-indigenous businesses looking to gain partnerships and develop new opportunities
- Those ready to do business and excited about developing new partnerships and opportunities
For any possible business connections, we can coordinate a meeting time for you to sit down, one on one with each other to discuss opportunities of working together.
