Sto:lo Nation and Sto:lo Community Futures have teamed up to host a unique conference next week that hopes to build relationships between organizations and businesses operating on its territory.

Sto:lo Business Match allows delegates to use an online tool to set up as many as 20 appointments over the event’s two days.

The aim is to keep the 20-minute appointments focused and efficient to help spur or develop business relationships.

The event is open to decision-makers from Sto:lo groups and businesses, other First Nations, government and non-profit agencies and non-aboriginal enterprises.

“The two-day intensive experience eliminates geographic barriers, condenses time requirements, reduces costs and facilitates opportunities,” organizers say on their website.

The event takes place Oct. 28 and 29 at the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Conference Centre.
