We at ABM have a long standing relationship with ITBC and are pleased to once again work closely with its team to produce ABM Indigenous: West. Tourism continues to play a pivotal role in Indigenous business development. As a stakeholder-based organization committed to growing and promoting a sustainable, culturally rich Indigenous tourism industry, ITBC works with communities and businesses across British Columbia. We know the tourism sector, along with its supply chain businesses, will be active in creating opportunities and partnerships at the event.

Business Matching Priorities

ABM Indigenous: West 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 from technology to agriculture and retail etc. Please contact David Marsh, Director of Sales, at 1-(604) 414-3647 or email info@ravenevents.ca to discuss your business development needs.

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.

Important Date(s)

Super Early Bird: Expires February 13, 2019
Early Bird: Expires March 13, 2019
Payment Due Date: April 13, 2019

Please note that we have increased registration fees for 2019. HOWEVER, the Super Early Bird rate remained the same.

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.
