Check back soon – we expect to have this section updated by Friday, April 25th.
No additional registration is required of you before the event – if you’ve already completed your registration for a badge, you are eligible to schedule your matchmaking appointments at the event.
Some adjustments have been made in our matchmaking process in comparison to previous events because of changes and the available information from NSWC.
Here’s what you need to know:
We will have approximately 14 tables, with 28 Government representatives available at the matchmaking sessions.
Senior representatives from each of the departments will present a briefing during the panel discussion; this will allow you to determine which representative you would like to meet with during the matchmaking sessions.
Simply visit the registration table to receive a ticket for your specific appointment. Further instructions will be provided at the event.
Each business can schedule a maximum of 8 appointments for the day, lasting 10 minutes each. Appointments made at the registration desk will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
