Trade Mission: 8th Annual SEUS-CP Conference, June 28-30, 2015, Charlottetown, PEI

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

The Department of Business, Tourism, Culture and Rural Development is now recruiting for the 8th Annual SEUS- CP B2B Mission and Conference which is taking place in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, from June 28-30, 2015 at the PEI Convention Center. The conference has more than 300 PEI-SEUS Canadian and U.S. business leaders participating and will offer a great opportunity to network with key global leaders.

The theme of this year’s event is “Clustering Companies and Organizations to Increase Economic Benefit.” The keynote address from Ifor Ffowcs-Williams, CEO, Cluster Navigators Limited, an international leader in the development of industry clusters, will look at the potential for clusters as an economic strategy in a world trade environment.

Included in the robust agenda is a B2B matchmaking program that will match delegates from across the 13 alliance jurisdictions to maximize business opportunities. As well, businesses will have the chance to meet directly with procurement officials from the SEUS/CP anchor companies.

Charlottetown is an area of great opportunity with strengths in a number of sectors, including renewable energy and bioscience. Matchmaking will be focused on these sectors, but will also include aerospace and defense, ocean technology, energy, food/agri-food, logistics, life science, ICT and digital media, and other sectors.

This conference, through focused B2B matchmaking, provides invaluable opportunities for companies to identify new markets, forge new partnerships, and foster existing business connections. Contact us now as recruitment is underway! If you are interested in attending this conference, please contact Gillian Chatman at 729-3922.

Established in 2007, the SEUS-CP Alliance is a strategic trade partnership between six southeastern states (Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama) and seven Canadian provinces (Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba).
