The Osoyoos Indian Band Development Corporation (OIBDC), a major economic generator in the South Okanagan currently involved in more than $100 million of joint venture projects, participated in ABM West with the goal of forming new business relationships and showcasing their current initiatives.
Glen Harris, VP Development Manager for OIBDC’s Senkulmen Business Park, attended his first ABM in Penticton in May 2015 and found it to be an effective way to make new business contacts from a variety of industries.
“Following up after ABM West, we are in discussion with three companies interested in opportunities within our 135 acre Senkulmen Business Park, which is open for leasing, business start ups and joint ventures in a variety of different areas including value added manufacturing, food processing, and warehousing/distribution,” said Glen.
“The prescheduled appointments with decision makers were productive for forming initial relationships, which we hope to be of benefit to future as well as present business. We are looking forward to ABM West 2016 in Penticton and exploring further opportunities for OIBDC and the Senkulmen Business Park.”
