Tradeshow Booth Registration
Fort William First Nation relies on tradeshow booths to help cover the costs of the Conference. To encourage participation, there is no registration fee for delegates. Last year’s conference was extremely successful and had 600 attendees over 2 days. We anticipate growth in attendance for this year’s conference. This year’s conference will bring together an audience of students, potential employees, training organizations, mining companies, First Nations members, government representatives, industry leaders, and others who are interested in fostering economic development in the region.Register a Tradeshow Booth »
