China travel and exhibition funding available: Confirm your interests today!
January 5, 2010

The Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance (CATA) is pleased to inform you of seven major China exhibitions with excellent funding opportunities for participants through Global Opportunities for Associations (GOA) funding.

In 2009 this funding helped CATA cover up to 50 per cent of the costs associated with attending the exhibitions (travel and accommodations) and purchasing a pod in CATA’s exclusive Canadian Pavilions for those who took advantage of the opportunities.

CATA wants to know which events you might be interested in attending in 2010 as well as any additional events or sectors in China that peak your interest. We will strongly consider your feedback and leverage it to get the most out of our 2010 GOA funding opportunity.

Please review the following list of confirmed Exhibitions and contact Kevin Wennekes, VP Research at kwennekes@cata.ca by noon on Monday, Jan. 11, 2010 with your feedback on which event(s) spark your interest as well as any additional information about your China interests.
