The CFB Esquimalt Industrial Trade Show, hosted by Lookout, held on Wednesday, Sept. 22 at the Naden Drill Shed was a big draw for business owners and
DND personnel alike. The feedback from all sides was positive with more than 800 attendees. Many people took part in the food offered by Montana’s at
lunch time and the refreshments provided by Serious Coffee and Costco were welcomed. Connections were made and the networking aspect of the show
brought the right people together under one roof.
