Learn to Lead a Good Life at Confederation College
Join us in beautiful Ryan Hall at Confederation College to meet and greet fellow Chamber members, check out this month’s exhibitors and see the SUCCI Wellness Centre, Minowaadiziiwin. Tours of the facility will be offered at 5:30pm and 5:50pm.
The modern multi-use facility boasts a gymnasium, running track, cardio and strength training rooms, as well as space designated for academic needs. The name Minowaadiziiwin means “Lead a Good Life”, which perfectly reflects the values of the facility and is hoped to inspire students and community members to do just that.
Come early! Our generous hosts are offering the first 50 people through the door a day pass to the SUCCI Wellness Centre, Minowaadiziiwin!
Where Do I Unload? Where Do I Park? Exhibitor Instructions
June After Business will be held in Ryan Hall, which is on the second floor of the Shuniah Building, the main building on Confederation College campus. Volunteers will be on-hand to help you with your gear and there will be directional signage! See the maps below for visuals.
Permission has been given for exhibitors to park temporarily while unloading at the east entrance of the building where there is a drive-through. Please do not park in the handicap access area.
ELEVATORS & STAIRS
Our venue is on the second floor of the building. From the east entrance, you’ll have the choice of two elevators: head straight across the open space in front of you to the elevator by the main doors on the opposite side of the building, or turn right and use the elevator at the end of the hall. If you’d prefer to use the stairs, you’ll find them to your left as you come in the east entrance.
Our venue is on the southeast corner of the Shuniah Building. If you come out of the elevator by the main doors, head straight back towards the east entrance and then turn right. If you use the elevator to the right of the east entrance, follow the corridor straight ahead.
Once your gear is upstairs, please park in the lot to the north of the east entrance for the rest of the evening.
Our BDC After Business events attract more than 100 business professionals looking to make new connections and grow existing relationships. Our Members gather at a different venue each time to enjoy informal conversation, delicious appetizers and a cash bar.
Additionally, After Business events are a great venue to promote your products or services by exhibiting to your fellow Members. Exhibitor registration includes a draped table, (size dependent on venue) electrical service when available and two attendee registrations for the event.
Attendees’ registration for this event takes place at the door, cash only please.
Please register here to exhibit at our April 2018 After Business event. If you are interested in exhibiting at multiple After Business events, please contact us at email@example.com or 624-2620 to arrange for billing.
