satisfaction with CADSI’s customer service and responsiveness
“Good way to meet new members of industry that might be able to assist in meeting our challenges and providing new opportunities and technological solutions.”
“It was effortless and easy to use. From a time management perspective, I was able to organize more meaningful meetings from CDM than a traditional trade show. It was an awesome experience. Looking forward to November”
“I’ve participated in a number of these business “speed dating” events and, in general, I have been less than impressed.  This one however seemed to have a different feel to it, and my colleagues and I came away with a number of very good meetings.”
“CDM was phenomenal – it went very smoothly. Our meetings were all productive and interesting. I am already thinking ahead to November!”
“Over the last 15 months this is by far the best virtual event I have ever attended”
“Great event! Having excellent meetings.”
“At CANSEC you’re lucky you might be able to get someone’s ear for 50 seconds. I never would have gotten a 20-minute meeting with this buyer at CANSEC or elsewhere.”

What is CDM?

CDM is a new and innovative global platform bringing industry and government leaders together for virtual business-to-business and business-to-government meetings on November 4, 2021. What CDM is NOT is a trade show or conference. Instead, it is:

A truly global platform

Connecting industry with government

Secure and private networking through video conferencing
