Company registration fees are based on company size, measured in number of employees. We consider the purchasing power of your entire organization, not only the budget of the smaller subsidiary or branch office you may represent.
The registration fee for Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities including development corporations is $200 (super early bird), $350 (early bird) and $500 (regular) across the board.

Our Rate Structure is Designed to Create Hyper-Productivity
Company registration fees are based on size, measured in number of employees, to keep fees for small businesses, that are not linked to a large corporation, as low as possible and to provide the second delegate registration for Indigenous communities for free. This encourages participation by the communities that deal with limited financial resources and by Indigenous entrepreneurs who are in the process of building their business. These ABMers are a significant growth market looking to increase their business activity.
ABM’s business matching concept is based on mutual benefit which is made possible by leveling the playing field. Everybody has the same profile template and number of appointments to attract business matches. Every delegate has the option to accept or decline meetings and is required to bring concrete business opportunities to the table.
Our fee structure of Super Early Bird, Early Bird and Regular further supports hyper-productivity. We know that ABM’s productivity increases exponentially the more business matching activity occurs early. We therefore provide a financial incentive to register early. More importantly though, registering early means that ABMers increase their visibility and profile. No matter if you represent a community or business, this allows you to raise awareness for your business goals early and increase the probability of attracting the right partners or customers. Additionally, early registration allows ABM to recruit more decision makers of specific interest to you. By registering early, delegates maximize results and improve ROI.
- Once your attendance is approved, your invoice is posted on your ABM profile home page. You can download a PDF. It shows the rate applicable at the time of registration. Rates for unpaid accounts increase as registration fees increase. If your invoice remains unpaid when a fee increase is due, your invoice goes up by $150.
