The CETA Business Forum will have among its official partners the Organization of Women in International Trade OWIT of Toronto.
OWIT-Toronto is a non-profit professional organization designed to promote women doing business internationally, by providing networking opportunities, export education and global business contacts. Members include women entrepreneurs, service providers and business women involved in international trade.
OWIT-Toronto was the first Canadian chapter of the Organization of Women in International Trade (OWIT), a worldwide network of chapters promoting international trade and commerce. With women-owned businesses significantly underrepresented in the global trade arena, OWIT seeks to change this by providing global business contacts, networking and educational opportunities.
The presence of OWIT-Toronto stems from the conviction that women have an essential role that must be valued in order to improve their social, economic and health status as well. The opportunities offered by CETA in various sectors also allow female companies, both Canadian and European, to be able to look beyond their own country, to the opportunities offered in other contexts, in order to both personal and business growth.
For this reason the CETA Business Forum, with the support and presence of OWIT-Toronto, will dedicate an important space for discussion to the theme of women entrepreneurship, which will be the focus of one of the “CETA Talks“, the debates scheduled during the conference. During this talk, scheduled for June 23 at 6 pm in the virtual conference room “Canada”, we will listen to the experiences of European and Canadian entrepreneurs with the aim of defining the actions to be taken to accelerate the growth of all-female companies.
The first edition of the CETA Business Forum is scheduled for June 22-23, 2022 and will take place entirely online, through a digital platform capable of reproducing a 360° trade fair event, with the presence of classrooms, stands and services for interaction between participants, all in 3D format. The B2B area will be open from June 22 to 30, 24 hours a day, and will allow participants to arrange face-to-face meetings to get to know each other and develop new relationships.
