“Trade shows play a vital role in setting the foundation and offering the framework to facilitate business growth by providing entrepreneurs with an economical and effective way to make new connections.
The 4th International Business Trade Show is a great opportunity to make new business connections. Presenting participants with a valuable opportunity to network with prospective new investors and market and promote products and services to potential new customers. Connections often lead to new business opportunities fostering economic growth in our region; sharing our efforts and opportunities will make all of us stronger”
Mayor Mike Savage, Halifax Regional Municipality
“ I have been part of the IB Trade show from year one and have witnessed the tremendous growth that the show has faced year after year. I have held the key sponsor spot three years in a row and I am proud to be involved with the show. It is the only business trade show I know that is family oriented and it is filled with lots of free fun activities for the whole family to enjoy, yet it is still professional and businesses that take part in the show get a return on their investment. It is a win –win for everyone”
Mohsen Teimouri, Civic Homes
“It’s without hesitation that I offer kudos to Nikki Jafari, founder of Halifax’s International Business Trade Show & Iranian New Year Celebration event. I was fortunate to have watched the show grow from its modest inception over three years ago, to the grandeur that it is today. I have known Nikki for over three years and I have always been impressed with her level of dedication, her high expectations and her ability to always follow through. I look forward to participating in and attending many more IB Trade Shows and strongly encourage other business owners to also get involved”
Giacomo Bruno, Publisher, SNAP Halifax
“The IB Trade Show is one of the best networking opportunities in HRM! Not only was I able to casually chat with employers about their businesses, I was also able to help them with their recruitment needs by discussing the free services ISIS has to offer. These new partnerships aim to help strengthen and diversify the workforce across the province. The website, support materials, good organization and welcoming environment added to the success of this year’s event. The food, artwork and colorful performers sprinkled throughout was also a highlight”
Kyle Turner, Employer Engager, ISANS
“Given my travel schedule and time constraints, I only attend ONE Tradeshow per year. That show is the International Business Tradeshow put together each year by Nikki Jafari. The reason? It’s different than a lot of Tradeshows, and that difference (less formal, very engaged attendees, high excitement level, varied attendee type) makes it very appealing for me. Additionally, after this year’s show, I had a potential client that I met at my booth approach me about a possible fit for working with their company, and in the speaking business, that’s not as common as it would be in a lower ticket type market. I also guard my testimonials closely, and it’s not every day that I would encourage anyone who hasn’t yet looked into something to look into it, but the International Business Tradeshow is that show, and today is that day!”
Corey Poirier, Professional Speaker
“HR pros has participated in the IB trade show since the beginning. Through Nikki’s efforts and passion, the IB Tradeshow has grown to become a major event in Halifax. It is much more than a trade show, it is a unique cultural event! It is well-advertised and attendance has increased every year. It has become an excellent yet affordable opportunity for a small business to gain exposure. Well done Nikki Jafari and your team for having the courage and the conviction to create this event and to develop it to what it has become today!”
Sylvain Allaire, HR Pros

The International Business Trade Show was a great event which provides the exhibitor with a perfect platform to promote his/her product or service to a broader group that may have little or no knowledge of your products and services. The exhibitors are open to a large and diverse range of audiences. For us, participating in the International Business Trade Show – It’s about being a part of this vibrant diverse business community in Halifax, Nova Scotia, reconnecting with people we haven’t seen in a while, and making new connections with people, organizations, and businesses that help drive our business into the future.

I have been involved with this trade show since the very beginning.. mostly through the various Developers that I have worked with . The show has a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere which allows families to take in the show and enjoy all that it has to offer. There is something for everyone, from the information presented by various booth holders to the entertainment on stage to the kids corner or the food court.I personally have made great contacts for business at the show and by being there year after year, have found that I am starting to know more people in the immigrant communities. The show is professionally run and the staff are always ready to help with anything that you may need. It is always nice to see people who you work with in a casual setting spending time with their families. It just sheds a new light on those relationships.
Sheila Cashin, Coldwell Banker Associates
