The Reservation Economic Summit (RES), organized by the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development (NCAIED), is the leading Indigenous business and enterprise development summit in the US.
This event will attract around 4,000 attendees who participate in its networking activities, matchmaking opportunities, business development sessions and more.
While all Indigenous businesses from Canada are welcome to join the Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) delegation at RES, we believe that companies offering products/services in the following areas will garner the most success:
- Food and beverage
- Gaming and entertainment
- Consumer products (including Indigenous art and traditional crafts)
- Natural resources/energy
- Infrastructure/construction/building products
- Information and communication technologies (tech)
The TCS program at RES 2024 will include:
- Preparatory webinars to help companies make the most of their participation in the event
- A matchmaking program
- A Canada booth where Indigenous businesses will be able to display company brochures and product samples
- A Canada Reception and other networking opportunities
- A directory of Indigenous businesses from Canada
- And more!
The Trade Commissioner Service will be organizing its second Indigenous Business Delegation to Arizona from March 25-27, 2024. This delegation will focus on the agriculture, processed foods and consumer products industries. Participating companies will have the opportunity to establish connections with local partners for the purpose of exploring international business prospects. We believe this initiative may be of significant interest to some of our respected RES delegates.
