Northeastern Alberta Aboriginal Business Association 14th Annual Aboriginal Business Showcase
The Northeastern Alberta Aboriginal Business Association (NAABA) is thrilled to announce that they will be hosting their 14th Annual Aboriginal Business Showcase, presented by Suncor Energy, on an exciting new virtual platform March 10 and 11, 2021.
The Showcase’s virtual platform will feature many of same elements that has made it an impactful event in previous years: entrepreneurial storytelling, keynote addresses, and focused business sessions. It has also paved the way to broaden its audience and deliver valuable networking opportunities through live chat and video platforms.
The cornerstone of Showcase will be a virtual exhibitor hall open to all NAABA Certified Full Members. The exhibition provides an opportunity for attendees to truly understand the depth of experience, qualifications and breadth of work that is taking place with and by Indigenous owned businesses in the region. Attendees will be able to visit the virtual hall no different than attending a trade show. Registration and further details on exhibiting can be found by contacting NAABA directly or on our website here
Day one of the Showcase will be headlined by The Right Honourable Paul Martin, 21st Prime Minister of Canada, representing the Martin Family Initiative and Youth Aboriginal Entrepreneurship Program. Other keynote speakers include JP Gladue from A2A Rail and representatives from presenting sponsor Suncor Energy.
The schedule also includes a variety of sessions with business focused topics, including entrepreneurial and education sessions appealing to both NAABA’s member base and the general public. Speaker and session details will continue to be updated in the coming weeks as NAABA works with exhibitors and sponsors to enhance the virtual platform and provide an engaging experience that will support Aboriginal business development.
NAABA’s Aboriginal Showcase will be open to the public to attend. Tickets for the two-day event are $20 each and all ticket revenue will be directed to future NAABA programming
