October 2021 ABM Classic
Treaty 6 and 7 Territory, Red Deer, Alberta
ABM Alberta is about connecting communities and companies with complementing goals, supporting economic diversification and innovation while providing opportunities to form partnerships that result in new ventures, stronger market presence and a sharper competitive edge. We are looking for companies that represent all industry sectors including those that are not directly related to oil and gas but offer opportunities from technology and tourism to agriculture and retail etc. Please contact our team to discuss your business development goals and if ABM is the right tool for you to achieve them.
Louis Bull Tribe
“We have fought hard for the economic independence we have today, and were especially proud to sign a landmark agreement with the Federal Government last year – the Indigenous Skills and Employment Training (ISET) agreement – which was the first of its kind in Alberta. We are also part of the Six Independent Alberta First Nations organization which promotes employment readiness among its members. Our focus is our community and providing them with the jobs and careers they need to support their families and maintain our independence and our culture. As co-hosts for ABM Indigenous: Alberta we welcome conversations around skills training as well as business development within our traditional territories.”
– Chief Irvin Bull, Louis Bull Tribe
Montana First Nation
“We value people, safety, our earth, our environment, service and integrity. It is our mission to create financial and administrative independence, increase our tribal land and business base, build a free-trade zone, and prepare our youth to own and operate their own business, as we encourage the retention of our Cree culture. Events like Advanced Business Match help us find new partners as we grow, and we look forward to joining with our co-host Louis Bull Tribe in starting conversations that lead to greater prosperity for our peoples.”
– Chief Leonard Standingontheroad, Montana First Nation
Preparation is Key
Because business matching is the central component of your attendance at ABM, your success on the trade show floor depends on being active on the ABM system prior to the show — the sooner the better. Kick-starting these conversations early gives you a better chance of locking in those pre-scheduled appointments for a fuller, more effective show. Delegates who are engaged on the ABM system, active in accepting and declining pre-scheduled appointment requests and who show up on the trade show floor ready to go, see a real result at ABM.
Super Early Bird: May 5, 2020
Early Bird: August 5, 2020
Payment Due Date: September 5, 2020
The payment due date is not a registration deadline. Provided your application is approved, we will accept companies into the show as long as we have booth space. If you register after the payment deadline, your payment is due when your application is approved and required before you can start business matching.
As communities do not require a booth, we will accept their applications even the day of the show. However, the sooner you start business matching, the better your results.
