AFDE Partnership Business-to-Business Networking Sessions

AFDE Partnership is holding business-to-business (B2B) networking sessions in northern BC in late June 2018. The sessions will provide an opportunity for businesses from local and regional communities to meet with AFDE , the Generating Station and Spillways (GSS) Civil Works contractor for the Site C project, as well as to network with each other.

Learn more about AFDE and our scope of work.

Registration and Locations

Registration is required for the business networking sessions. Please register for one session per business as the same contractor representatives will be present at each session in each community. An Indigenous Opportunities Representative will be present at the Fort St. John and Chetwynd sessions.

The following are the dates and times for each of the business networking sessions:

**Please note that the timing of these sessions has been updated.

The B2B networking sessions will be conducted using a “speed networking” format. To ensure each business is given equal time, you will have five minutes to introduce your company, its services, and experience.
