Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce

Verbatim Exposition




NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE – The first annual Verbatim Exposition will take place on Sept. 15, 2016, at Queen’s Landing Hotel in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

The Expo will be a gathering of students, successful business leaders, and entrepreneurs from leading post-secondary institutions and up-and-coming companies.

The inaugural event’s keynote speaker will be Dragons’ Den: Next Gen cast member Nicole Verkindt.

She is the founder of Offset Market Exchange (OMX), an online platform that manages the obligations government contractors have to invest in local economies.

The platform generates data analytics to help governments understand economic impacts of procurement decisions.

Centred in the heart of Ontario’s wine country, guest speakers will share their stories about building and expanding their ventures, along with the obstacles they have faced along the way.

Verbatim Co-Founder Greg Claroni said the inaugural event, which will also include a trade show, is shaping up to be one that people who work in a wide range of fields will find valuable.

“Whether you are an aspiring inventor, the owner or manager of a small business, or a corporate leader – this event will provide plenty of value to people who work in all types of fields. We believe that attendees will leave with actionable insights from Canada’s top executives and startup companies,” said Claroni.

Also speaking at the Verbatim Expo are:

  • Alex Ross (Patent Lawyer);
  • Lori Hall (Trademark Lawyer);
  • Jeffery Potvin (CEO of Hardboot Inc.);
  • Christine Bird (Co-Founder of Plum);
  • Isabel Hoffmann (Founder of TellSpec);
  • Roxanne Pettipas (Founder of Buddy Belts);
  • Henry Chong (Founder of Revelo Electric);
  • Stuart Lowther (Founder of Element Nutrition);
  • Rudy Callageri (Founder of Zootly)

The conference will be live-streamed in educational institutions and businesses across Canada.

“We have such a diverse lineup of business professionals joining us for this year’s Expo – it’s going to be a great day for everyone who attends and we are excited to take our first step towards bringing together entrepreneurs here in Canada and abroad,” he said.
