VIEA Business Match – Connecting Business For Shared Prosperity

An interesting, diverse and forward-thinking group of businesses and communities will meet to forge new relationships at VIEA Business Match, March 11 – 13 at the Victoria Conference Centre.

VIEA Business Match is a unique way to connect with potential partners. Instead of the traditional format of networking you get at a conference, this revenue-driver focuses on strategic, pre-qualified online matching that leads to face to face appointments with specific leads interested in your business goals.

The event is a partnership between the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance andAdvanced Business Match. It is designed to capitalize on our new designation as aForeign Trade Zone, which makes Vancouver Island a preferred location for production and a destination for foreign direct investment. This puts us at the forefront of the burgeoning Asia-Pacific market, as our ports and proximity to the US make us valuable participants in economic growth.

Registered delegates for VIEA Business Match range from some of Vancouver Island’s most respected change-makers, to an international business consultancy offering strategic support in the maritime and aviation industries, sustainable water oxygenation innovation, construction and development leaders and a co-working concept designed to spark collaboration.
