Ottawa's first Build a Bid workshop provided those fortunate enough to attend, with practical, hands-on information on how to accurately present a bid and close the deal.

The event took place at the RA Centre on Sept. 22. Created by the Snow and Ice Management Association (SIMA), it was facilitated by Robert Smart of Smart Snow and Ice Management and Phil Harwood from Pro-motion Marketing.

The day-long program was generously sponsored by the following: Go Mobile Communications, Greely Sand and Gravel, Robinson Brothers Transport Spécialisé, Twin Equipment Limited and Landscape Management Network.

Next year, the Chapter will host the first-ever Ottawa Snow and Ice Symposium, on Sept. 12 and 13, at the Rideau Carleton Raceway Entertainment Centre, at 4837 Albion Rd. For more information, contact Ottawa Chapter coordinator Martha Walsh at mwalsh@landscapeontario.com.
