Supply Ontario Reverse Trade Show

Since April 2009, the Ministry of Government & Consumer Services has hosted reverse trade shows introducing business owners to buyers and representatives from Ontario ministries, agencies, academic organizations, the healthcare sector and municipalities.

This is a unique opportunity for business owners seeking to learn how to sell to the provincial government.  There is not other venue where they get to meet government buyers face to face.

A seminar on "How to do business with the Ontario Government" is planned for 2:00 pm in the theatre adjacent to the trade show room.
