With its focus on fostering business relationships and connecting enterprises, the Annual Business Networking (ABN) event was a great success for any business looking to expand its reach and grow.
The Improved Competitiveness of National Enterprise (ICONE) Program held its ABN event on the 18th of January, 2023, to launch the enterprise support activities for 2023. This event engaged ICONE’s key partners and stakeholders and welcomed the newly selected businesses into the program.
The ICONE Annual Business Networking Event is an event that takes place once a year and provides companies of varying sizes and industries with a platform for networking with potential clients, business partners, and industry experts. The 2023 event featured 60 ICONE-supported firms and allowed attendees to learn more about support activities. The event featured several presenters and breakout sessions organized by members of the ICONE team.
“This is one of the rare events that happen in Siem Reap. I found this event most useful and fruitful in terms of network connections and business matching. I also had access to short and effective consultation services and was able to communicate with various ICONE partners. It is worth spending my busy time.” said Mr. Chhay Sambath, CEO of Cambodia Hair Extension Co. Ltd, Siem Reap.
Mr. Uon Chhien, owner of Serik Farm and the chair of the Agricultural Cooperative (AC) in Malai, Banteay Meanchey, also mentioned that “ICONE partners, business service providers, and retailers all were present at the ABN event in Siem Reap, making it a well-organised and successful event. My business network has significantly improved due to my participation in this event, and I have established links with wholesalers.”
The event serves as a critical platform to connect target companies with service providers, financial institutions, and distributors and establish fruitful business relationships. Partner institutions are also invited to the event to communicate and establish connections with these newly recruited target businesses. Through these connections, businesses can gain access to a network of partners, paving the way for their growth and development. The Annual Business Networking event is an excellent platform for businesses to explore new opportunities, connect with like-minded individuals, and develop strong partnerships that will support their long-term success.
