New business contacts are indispensable elements to furthering company development, through new purchasing  sources,clients, technical solutions or human resources. The Speed Business Meeting (SBM hereafter) is a networking  model which aims to help you develop new business relationships through 10 minute long B2B meetings with randomly selected partners, where you have the chance to introduce yourself and your company, your product(s) and targets: the research of new customers, suppliers or partners. This is followed by a networking reception to further establish new business contacts.

How does it work?

At the Canadian Chamber registration desk, the staff will give each participant a card with either a number, or with a number and the letter A (i.e. 5 or 5A).

The number indicates the table where the two participants should be sitting at the beginning of the SBM.

When the bell rings, each person has a 5-minute speaking time. After 10 minutes, the bell rings again and the person with the number and the letter A (i.e. 5A) should move to the next
table up (i.e. 6). The person with only a number stays at the table throughout the SBM event.

7 meetings will take place at the event.

A 10-minute break will be taken at around 6:45 p.m.

Note: if nobody joins you at your table, please ask the organizers to assist you, they will seat you at another table.

Some tips to optimize your participation at the Speed Business Meeting
* Do not think only about business to business but about networking. If the person you are speaking with is not interested in your product and/or service, this person may know in his network (business, family ...) someone who could be interested.
* During the cocktail, instead of joining a group of people that you already know, do not hesitate to meet other participants.
