SME Day Ottawa 2019

SME Day Ottawa has a long standing history of educating members and bridging the gap between OEMs, governments and Canadian SMEs. The day starts with an insightful morning program geared to informing members of the current programs and best practices for their success, followed by a full afternoon of targeted 20-minute B2B/G meetings, entitled "Supply Chain Connect."

Here's how the business development meetings work: 
Each registrant is given access to an online schedule to pre-book meetings with business managers from OEM organizations and federal/provincial government departments and programs. In the afternoon, approved industry buyers have a designated table where registrants will join them for a 20-minute appointment. This is a premier opportunity to meet with industry buyers, introduce your products and services and develop new contacts.

Registrants have will be sent an email with all the information on how to book meetings. All meetings are booked on-line in real time.  It is first-come-first-serve and early registration will have the best selection for their meetings.

The "SUPPLY CHAIN CONNECT B2B/G Tool" will be open the 3rd week of September.
