There are several networking opportunities and valuable feedback sessions built into the program to facilitate introductions and create meaningful partnerships.

Benefits of Participation
With over 40 billion dollars in Canadian Government spending forecast in the Aerospace, Defence, and Security (ADS) sector, ADS companies are seeking partnerships to add value to the Canadian economy. The key – Canadian energy companies utilize similar technology as the Defence sector with unique requirements. There is a significant need to facilitate investment and acquisition of technology or services by Defence in Canada. As such, there is an opportunity for cross-sectoral diversification and/or licensing opportunities of your current products.
