Industry speed dating events set for May

Island businesses are invited to get connected with North Island Hospitals Project.

The Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce, along with a number of community partners, is pleased to announce the dates for two Industry Speed Dating events in relation to the construction of the two new North Island hospitals.

The events are a collaborative effort of the Comox Valley and Campbell River Chambers of Commerce, Vancouver Island Construction Association, Vancouver Island Economic Alliance and the North Island Hospitals Project of the Vancouver Island Health Authority.

“The Speed Dating events to be held May 27 in Campbell River and May 28 in Courtenay will provide an opportunity for local businesses to promote their companies and services to each of the three consortiums bidding on the two new state-of-the-art hospitals,” said Comox Valley Chamber president and CEO Dianne Hawkins. “More information about how to participate and promote your business during the sessions will be provided when you register and will, of course, be communicated to our members and the community as it becomes available.”

Register at cr.majorprojects.ca beginning May 13. Businesses may only register for one session.
