The Naturallia 2017 concept

Upon registering for Naturallia, companies benefit from a targeted approach which promotes efficient time management. Described by some as “speed-dating for business”, one-on-one meetings between participating company representatives and other leaders and entrepreneurs are conducted based on their international trade, investment and/or business development goals, with the aim of developing lasting partnerships and alliances.

Participants first fill out an online registration form. Two weeks prior to the event, each participant receives a registered business directory. Then, they can submit up to 20 requests for meetings with representatives from their companies of choice. Afterwards, “matchmaking“ software is used to pair companies and participants.


•   Up to fourteen qualified 30-minute interviews with companies that meet your selection criteria;

•   Access to international trade experts (commercial lawyers, financial institutions, insurance companies, customs brokers, transportation specialists, and more);

•   Participation in the opening ceremony, keynote addresses, and industry roundtables;

•   Numerous networking opportunities complementing the regular meeting calendar;

•   Simultaneous translation for all the meetings (English and French);

•   Industrial tours of leading companies and Plan Nord sites in Quebec;

•   Participation in the Naturallia 2017 gala dinner and closing ceremony;

•   Transportation between your hotel and the activity venues;

•   All meals and coffee breaks throughout the event.
