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 15-minute business development meetings.
Here's how the business development meetings work:
Approximately 3 weeks prior to the event, 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 15-minute appointment. This is a premier opportunity to meet with industry buyers, introduce your products and services and develop new contacts.
A few weeks prior to the event, registrants are sent an email with all the information on how to book meetings. All meetings are booked on-line in real time—no one can take your appointment once it's booked! It is first-come-first-serve and early registration will have the best selection for their meetings.
