06 Dec EXTRA LIGHT Exploratory Mission to Canada!
From 27th November to 1st December 2023, EXTRA LIGHT partners met in Toronto, Canada for their 2° exploratory international mission.
Cluster managers had the opportunity to get valuable insights on the public procurement in Canada and engage in productive discussions with the strategic Canadian public buyers during the business meetings, representing the Ontario Public Buyers Association, the City of Mississauga and the Health Pro Procurement Services as well as the Association of Municipalities of Ontario and the Canoe Procurement Group, which outlined the public tendering procedures managed by their organisations.
To complete their knowledge on the Canadian marketplace, EXTRA LIGHT clusters discussed the potential SME-oriented market-entrance strategies, collaborations with local business partners and trends in the lighting-furniture segments with the key lighting and design stakeholders operating in the Great Toronto Area and Ontario province like the STL Lighting Group and Toronto International Design Centre.
Finally, a glimpse into the Toronto Building Show completed the EXTRA LIGHT mission in Canada!
We extend our gratitude to ADEXIA and Yann Jadis for their support in managing the mission agenda!
