NABOC events always attract Key Decision Makers from industry and Aboriginal communities Canada wide.

Registration for this event is limited to 100 delegates and attendance is by application to Geoff Greenwell, CEO of the 2G Group of Companies.

For First Nations, this event is only open to Chiefs and Councillors who hold the economic development portfolio for their Bands as well as CEO’s of Indigenous owned Development Corporations
For Industry, this event is only open to Senior Executives who are key decision makers in their organizations.
The Format of the 2023 NABOC Osoyoos Power Networking Weekend is as follows:
Our Power Networking Weekend starts with a Welcome Reception sponsored by Sedgwick Strategies from 6pm – 9pm in the NK’MIP Conference Centre. Enjoy the mellow sounds of Shawn Bullshields from the Blackfoot Nation.
Day 1 starts with doors opening and breakfast being served from 7:30am in the conference centre and from there delegates who’ve signed up for the golf tournament will meet at the Sonora Dunes Pro-Shop at 8:30am. Non-golfers can either go on the Cultural/Sight-Seeing tour or spend time networking in the conference centre from 9:30am – Noon.
At Noon the group will split in half and a gourmet lunch with wine pairings will be served for each group at either the famous Sonora Room Restaurant at the Burrowing Owl Estate Winery or the The Restaurant at the spectacular Phantom Creek Winery.
From 2:30pm-4:30pm we will reconvene in the NK’MIP conference centre for more delegate free time and networking.
At 6pm we’ll start our banquet dinner in the conference centre with an open mic session focused on “Lessons Learned in Business and Leadership” as well as some fantastic live entertainment from Shawn Bullshields and Enoch Cree Nation’s Uncle Joe and the Nephews.
Day 2 starts with doors opening and breakfast being served from 9:00am-10:00am and then delegates will spend the rest of the morning networking and having one-on-one meetings.
At Noon the lunch groups from Day 1 will switch and another gourmet lunch with wine pairings will be served for everyone at either the famous Sonora Room Restaurant at the Burrowing Owl Estate Winery or the The Restaurant at the spectacular Phantom Creek Winery.
After lunch our local tour guides will take delegates to the District Wine Village for tastings and an opportunity to purchase some world class wines.
The wine tour will end at 4pm and delegates can either travel home that evening or stay another night and join us for a hospitality event with live entertainment at the NK’MIP Cultural Centre from 6pm-9pm.
By bringing together 100 high-profile industry executives and First Nations business leaders, we are creating a truly special and unique networking opportunity for those who are invited to attend!
As your Conference Organizer I look forward to hosting you at the fabulous Spirit Ridge Hotel and Spa from MAY 26th – 28TH, 2023.
