Women in Business Ottawa (WIBO) is a Trade Show & Sale that was organized to help Ottawa-area women with at-home businesses to promote their products and services. Vendors predominantly hail from the Ottawa-Gatineau region, and cater to Ottawa-area women and families.
Created and organized by Angele Villeneuve, WIBO had its first trade show in the fall of 2010. Since then, it has expanded to include vendors from farther away. The show has grown since its inception, expanding from 60 vendors in the spring of 2011 to around 100 vendors this October.
As the organizer, Angele participates in the event with Norwex and Gold Canyon products. She started this event after attending an Orleans trade show as a vendor and realized that there were no such events organized for the Kanata/Stittsville to central Ottawa area.
Entry is free of charge; however, donations are collected upon arrival for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.
Event location: Nepean Sportsplex, 1701 Woodroffe Ave, Halls A & B, from 9-3pm.
