PENTICTON - First Nation's business people in the South Okanagan are getting down to the business of building relationships this week.

The Penticton Indian Band is hosting its fourth Aboriginal Business Match, which gets underway today, May 9, at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre.

Representatives from over 100 companies are in town to meet aboriginal business decision makers from across southern B.C. and Alberta over the next three days.

Aboriginal Business Match project manager Noah Schweitzer says delegates will have the opportunity to make 20 minute appointments with businesses, services and government agencies attending the convention.

Aboriginal Business Match organizes seven trade shows across the country every year.
