There are grant opportunities to help cover travel and conference fees. Please connect with AWE before registering to learn more.

Why should I go with AWE and Business Women in International Trade (BWIT)?

You could attend the conference on your own, but when you attend with AWE and the Canadian delegation, you’ll receive additional support and guidance.

By joining our delegation you can:

  • Tap into AWE’s knowledge and expertise of international markets

  • Identify the right opportunities for you and your business

  • Access personalized advice and support

When you are in unfamiliar territory, sometimes you need a tour guide. Our team has a wealth of experience and information on how to build strong connections and how to do business in the U.S. supplier diversity market.

We’ll start with a pre-conference meeting to get clear on your goals. Then at the event we’ll assist you to determine where to spend your time, and which activities are the most valuable.

Going alone to this massive conference can be very overwhelming, but we’ll be there every step of the way to make sure it’s productive and a valuable investment of your time.

Please let us know if you’re interested in learning more about the opportunity!
