Looking for new contacts in the Canadian horticulture industry? Join our matchmaking session for which you will be specifically matched to the Canadian players you might be looking for! These can be potential customers, business partners, R&D partners or other contacts you might be looking for from the private sector, as well as from the public sector.

A matchmaker will try to find your 3 best matches based on an intake. A small contribution of 200 (ex VAT) is asked for participation. Registration is required and there is a limited number of spots available. Participation depends on the first-come-first-serve principle.

Note: the date for the matchmaking is not confirmed yet and will either be during the conference or the day after, based on participants preferences.
