NETWORKING NORTH RETURNS AFTER TRIUMPHANT 1st YEAR
Wasaya Airways is doing its part to promote local and surrounding area businesses to First Nation Communities in Northwestern Ontario
Thunder Bay, Ontario -- Tuesday, February 27, 2007 Wasaya Airways LP will be hosting the 2nd Annual Networking North conference and trade show on Thursday, March 1st, 2007 at the Valhalla Inn Ballroom from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. Based on the huge success last year, the event will be open to over 35 local and surrounding area exhibitors. Networking North is a significant forum that brings First Nation communities and businesses together to network.
“We gained more exposure for our store, and created awareness of the products we carry and the packages we are able to put together for First Nation communities,” said Mike Fonso of Play It Again Sports following last year’s event.
The delegate numbers have tripled this year, with delegates from 21 communities across Northwestern Ontario, all communities that Wasaya Airways services. Representatives from each community consist of a member of the Chief and Council, store owners and operators, the Economic Development Corporation, or a band manager or administrator. These are the decision makers of the First Nation communities.
Mayor Lynn Peterson will be welcoming delegates to Thunder Bay in the morning, and media are encouraged to attend. Interviews with Tom Morris, President & CEO of Wasaya Airways LP, can also be scheduled.
