OCE's Discovery has long been known as a place to do business. This year, however, a new component is being added to the award-winning innovation conference to bring together potential business partners.
The Business to Business (B2B) initiative is an exceptional opportunity for companies with an innovative technology or service to pitch directly to a large company in the same sector.
This exclusive networking opportunity enables up-and-coming SMEs to make the right connections with influential people at large corporations who are themselves keen to stay abreast of innovations in their field.
“This is an exciting development that has been enthusiastically embraced by both large companies and SMEs,” says OCE President and CEO Tom Corr. “We believe Discovery provides the ideal platform for businesses with intersecting interests to come together and we wanted to facilitate this process through a B2B zone.”
Participating companies include CIBC, Boeing, D2L, EllisDon, PC Financial, Lockheed Martin, Magna International, Thales, TMX Group, Scotiabank and TMMC.
OCE is curating SMEs to ensure the meetings are a valuable experience for all participants.
