Where there is a potential business match, we are proud to connect our local firms to visiting companies from around the world, for exploratory discussions on how to conduct business together. These business-to-business (B2B) matches provide an opportunity for local companies to meet potential suppliers, customers or joint venture partners from abroad, as well as share best practices.

Through our relationship with partner Think Compass (, Brampton EDT will welcome more than 40 companies from various worldwide locations to Ontario at a two-day event taking place in Niagara Falls October 19 and 20. The Think Canada Global Business Summit is being help in Niagara to ensure visitors experience something truly Canadian, while being able to remain focused on business activity.

Business visitors will match a number of Brampton’s key sectors of strength and opportunity: Advanced Manufacturing, Food and Beverage Processing, Information and Communication Technology, Health and Human Science and more.
