The NSBA is known for the quality of its events – both signature events and regular programming. We take pride in offering interesting and unique programming that is of interest to the business community. We also take pride in who attends NSBA events, not just the programming on offer. You will regularly find a combination of business owners, high-level government officials, and other key members of the business community at NSBA events, which make them a can’t-miss for networking.

Above and beyond the programming and attendees, what sets NSBA events apart is the unique vibe and culture that pervades the NSBA membership, creating a welcoming and congenial environment for newcomers and old friends alike.

Given these characteristics, NSBA events represent a great opportunity to advertise your business as an event sponsor. Each sponsorship level offers extraordinary benefits above and beyond association with a quality product and experience.

The NSBA’s premier event, the Business Builder Awards Banquet is the NSBA’s annual awards banquet, typically held in mid- to late March. Known for its unique, timely and fun-filled atmosphere, the banquet is a breath of fresh air in the Awards circuit, with a young, energetic vibe featuring a program that actually runs ahead of schedule. Attendance is typically in the 550-600 range.

Held on the last Wednesday in May, the NSBA Golf Classic is one of the premier golf tournaments in the Saskatoon marketplace. Golf Classic organizers pay a great attention to detail to ensure the event remains fun, timely (5-hour round), and well managed, with an emphasis on team chemistry. High demand caused the NSBA to expand to a 27-hole field, creating openings for an additional 52 golfers. Despite this, the tournament is an early sell out each year. Attendance is 200 golfers.
