BONUS! Trade with Canada Event

An exclusive Trade with Canada event, with a focus on the strengths of Canada’s marine technology and services, will take place during OI China 2017 at the Huangdao East Asian Exhibition Center. This event will allow ocean technology companies get in front of potential Chinese companies looking to “Buy Canadian”, and pitch the capabilities of their company in a quick 3-minute elevator pitch.

November 1, 2017 | 2:00pm - 3:30pm

Potential Chinese companies, interested in what they have heard, will also be invited to the Canadian Pavilion at OI China 2017 to meet with your company. This is a great way to drive traffic to your stand at no additional cost to you.
