Allan A. Martin Senior Public School will host this year's International Business and Technology (IBT) Trade Show on Thursday, May 11th, 2017. The theme of our Trade Show is "We Inspire Hope". The Trade Show will highlight more than 70 student-designed business ventures complete with business plans and marketing campaigns—with a variety of products available for purchase.
"The IBT Trade Show is the culmination of three years of learning in the IBT program," says Katina Paleologos, principal at Allan A. Martin. "It's an opportunity to showcase the varied and unique products that are the result of creative thinking from our young entrepreneurs."
Working collaboratively throughout the process, students have learned numerous 21st century skills, such as business skills, marketing, personal management skills, sales strategies and social media networking techniques. The IBT program is a regional program open to students entering grade 6. It prepares students for the challenges and changes faced in the current world of business and technology. Students are also able to build their skills in dynamic arts and the music program.
Trade show hours are from 8:30 to 11:00 a.m. 12 to 2:15 p.m. and 6 to 8:30 p.m. School groups interested in visiting the Trade Show should contact Omar Ali at [email protected] or 905-278-6104 extension 133.
