B2B Meetings Program

The B2B Zone is brought to you by:

In partnership with the Atlantic Canada Aerospace and Defence Association (ACADA), DEFSEC Atlantic will be facilitating one-on-one Business-to-Business and Business-to-Government meetings which will be available to all registered attendees.

We will be using an all-in-one web platform combining matchmaking, messaging and scheduling for the meetings. An important change to note for this year is that we will ONLY be facilitating in-person meetings at our event - the virtual/online meetings option will NOT be offered this year due to very low usage last year.

We will have four large rooms inside the Halifax Convention Centre dedicated to B2B meetings known as the "B2B Zone". Inside them are 30 dedicated 8' x 8' divided spaces which will be setup strictly for in-person meetings on Wednesday, October 4 and Thursday, October 5.

The B2B2GO Web Platform launched on September 5. Attendees will have a chance to find each other, make connections and plan arranged meetings using the system on the event days.

You can access the system directly by using the link:


The system we are using is called B2B2GO and we will also be using this same system for messaging before, during and after the event week, as well as using their on-demand video capability to make our recorded presentations available to you after our event week. The access after the event will end on October 31, 2023.

All registered DEFSEC Atlantic attendees will receive a personal e-mail invite to create their own individual profile in the B2B2GO system. Those who register after the initial launch of should receive their e-mail invite within 1 business day of the date they register. We will be doing daily syncs in the late afetrnoon between our registration platform and the B2B2GO system each weekday between its launch and our event.

Don't forget that you MUST be a registered attendee for DEFSEC Atlantic 2023 in order to be able to activate your B2B profile, plus use and access all of its other features.
