The International Business Tradeshow is an annual event with over 90 booth holders, Kids Corner, a food court and live entertainment on stage.
However, 7 years ago Nikki Jafari, a major advocate for building connections and relationships in the communities realized that there wasn’t really a way for the business members of her Iranian community or other groups in Halifax, to come together with those from the Iranian and non-Iranian communities in a true connection building, culture sharing, setting.
Haligonians had no public event to interact with the Iranian culture, and Nikki wanted to assist those struggling with cultural differences, and a lack of business and financial resources to be able to find the connections they needed in a non-evasive, fully supportive, setting.
Never afraid to roll up her sleeves for a cause she is passionate about and believes in, Nikki understood that bringing an open forum style tradeshow to Halifax was no easy task, but it was more than worth the effort once the doors officially opened on that day in March 2011. The first tradeshow was so successful that it outgrew the original concept, and it now is a truly multicultural experience where everyone can connect.
After six successful trade shows, we are just as excited to present the 6th Annual International Business Trade Show this April, once again in Halifax. It’s an event designed to allow people the opportunity to make new business connections, while learning about our diverse international business culture in Halifax, uplifting music and fantastic door prizes.
There is no cost to attend and will be a great day of family fun. Everyone is welcome to attend.
We look forward to making history again next April.
