Why should I participate?
Here is what some of our members and stakeholders have to say:
The seamless and step-by-step planning of the mission, especially the design and management of NanoCanada booth, was certainly the result of your great work in the months prior to and during the exhibit at nanotech Japan 2017. The Japan mission and the interactions we had with potential customers and collaborators will definitely help us grow in Japan and international markets. I look forward to further collaboration with NanoCanada, and to join the Canadian pavilion in the future. – Hooman Hosseinkhannazer, Norcada
As always, the admin support/coordination was awesome and allowed us to get great exposure through the Canadian pavilion. Nothing of that would have been possible without the collaboration of NanoCanada. Lots of international networking with potential academic partners as well as new connections made within the Canadian participants. –Robert Gauvin, CQMF
NanoCanada was very well organized and extremely helpful. The support and the exposure for PyroGenesis was great and I wouldn’t change anything for next year! – Massimo Dattilo, PyroGenesis Canada Inc.
I really appreciate the exceptional planning work that was done by the NanoCanada team. The main value to us was that we were able to attend an international tradeshow, in an environment that is not fluent in English that was completely turn-key. This allowed us to focus on the commercial and relationship-building aspects of the mission. – Antoine Charbonneau, CelluForce
NanoCanada plays an important role in expanding NDS’s reach internationally by cultivating relationships with universities and industry leaders across the globe. – Babak Shokouhi, Nanodevice Solutions
