ABM connects a national network of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal decision makers who create opportunities for business, training, and employment. The 2.5-day hyper-productive experience eliminates geographic barriers, condenses time requirements, and reduces costs. With the power to set up as many as 31 well prepared and pre-scheduled appointments, your conversations will be focused and efficient and determine next steps if a business match has been made or is possible.

ABM provides the forum to distill potential into real deals for SFNEDN. ABM is especially effective in drawing out business connections between small and medium sized companies and Indigenous business. Winning connections are being made in other provinces—especially in the sectors like construction (as an example) resulting of a higher level of trades training (including heavy construction) for a large, young, talented demographic of up and coming Indigenous workers. Partnerships and joint ventures across all sectors are on the rise capitalizing on supply chain opportunities stemming larger capital projects in the private sector, and government contracts.

National Averages from 2016 prove that ABM works:

  • 92% of delegates develop key contacts anticipating post-event deals.
  • 1 in 5 sign at least one deal on the trade show floor.
  • 1 in 3 attendees say that their participation in ABM generates revenue.
