Mission Benefits & Activities:

  • Booth space in the exhibition – We have secured booth space in a prime location on the exhibition floor and will be contracting a company to design and build this Canada pavilion. The pavilion theme will be in keeping with past missions to ICOE to continue the Canadian presence and profile that has been established. This pavilion will enable mission companies to display their logos, provide information specific to their firm, and will provide a space to meet with other companies.
  • Canada Booklet and Booth PPT – you will be listed in the virtual “Canada Booklet” that will developed for this mission and will include mission participants company profile, logo, contact and website.  You will also have the opportunity to have a 5-slide presentation looping on-screen at the booth.
  • ICOE-OEE Conference delegate pass – as part of the MRC mission, each participating company will receive one (1) full conference delegate pass & gala dinner ticket ($1150 CAD value)
  • Mission Consultant / Matchmaker – A professional matchmaking consultant will be contracted to assist mission participants. This consultant will work with companies one-on-one to identify organizations of interest, set-up  meetings, create and manage your meeting schedule and assign locations for the meetings. The matchmaker will be onsite at all times during the conference.
  • Private meeting room at event venue – in addition to the meeting space at the booth, we have secured a private meeting room at the conference venue that can be used by mission participants.
  • Delegate briefing session – We will host and informal in-country briefing session (likely a breakfast or dinner) that will allow all mission participants the opportunity to meet and network with each other as well as any Canadian Trade Commissioners in attendance, and provide MRC staff an opportunity to review mission details and activities with participants.
  • Canada Reception at ICOE-OEE 2022 – As at previous missions to ICOE, we are planning to host a Canada Reception inviting all ICOE-OEE delegates to attend.  These receptions have been very well attended in the past and we expect the same for this year.  More details on date and location to come – but we are looking at the evening of Monday, October 17th as a possibility.
