Here's how the business development meetings work:

Each registrant is given access to an on-line schedule to pre-book meetings with business managers from organizations such as Industry Canada, Regional Development Agencies and various OEMs.

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 will be sent an email with information on how to book meetings. All meetings are booked on-line in real time. Every Thursday morning until October 4th, 4 more meeting time slots will be released (for a total of 12 appointments). It is first-come-first-serve and early registrants will have the best selection for their meetings.
