A business matchmaking event that pairs Indigenous communities with potential business partners will take place in Sudbury this August.
Aboriginal Business Match (ABM) East 2018 will take place Aug. 27-29, 2018, at Collège Boréal in Sudbury, acknowledged as Robinson-Huron Treaty territory.
The event connects a national network of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal decision-makers to create opportunities for business, training and employment. It’s designed to remove geographical barriers, condense time requirements and reduce costs.
The organization is seeking companies that represent all industry sectors, including those that are not directly related to mining and related industries, but offer opportunities from technology to agriculture, retail, and more.
In 2016, 92 per cent of delegates developed key contacts anticipating post-event deals, and one in five made deals directly on the tradeshow floor.
