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.

A limited number of Business Connection booths are available. Contact Serena at 780-875-9013 or for more information.

“This summit exceeded my expectations. I was able to meet several indigenous, education, government and business leaders and discuss the first steps toward real progress. I’m really looking forward to attending the summit again in the future.”
