Organizer says it’s important to have a gathering like this that’s geared for Kivalliq’s economy
It has been two years since the Kivalliq Trade Show could be held in person and the return to a live event couldn’t come soon enough for Robert Connelly.
“I think the vast majority of people are excited to be able to gather again,” said Connelly, president of the Kivalliq Trade Show Society.
The three-day event that begins in Rankin Inlet on Monday allows businesses, government agencies and organizations in the Kivalliq region to set up booths on a trade show floor to promote themselves and discuss business with other delegates.
Connelly called it “a [chance] to make the deals that create jobs and opportunities for Nunavummiut, particularly Inuit,” adding approximately 200 people and groups are expected to register to take part.
