expo-2017-displayLet’s face it! As a Caribbean-based business and entrepreneur operating in the Eastern Caribbean your company’s growth is restricted by the small size of the local market and the declined economy. Indeed, reaping profits from your island’s already heavily strained market is a growing challenge and the reason so many Caribbean companies teeter on the brink of insolvency and closure.

Considering local market realities, exporting is a business strategy you cannot ignore if you intend to grow your firm. By expanding the markets which you can earn money from, exporting provides the opportunity to increase your business’ sales potential and profits.

Yet how do you as a Caribbean-based business, begin to align yourself with existing export opportunities? How do you introduce your company’s products and services to a wider international market?

One irrefutable answer: Exhibition at Trade Shows!

Trade show exhibition is an excellent avenue to establish visibility, presence and credibility with hundreds of buyers from around the globe interested in new products and services. It provides a powerful platform to expand your customer base; cement existing relationships and build a more established brand.

Understanding this, and driven by our goal to encourage the export of Eastern Caribbean products and services, the Saint Lucia Trade Export Promotion Agency (TEPA) in association with the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Commission is excited to host a Business Exposition—“Specialty Caribbean Expo”.

A buyer-focused exposition, TEPA is working with partner agencies including Cuba, Canada, the USA and the UK, securing buyer commitments for Speciality Caribbean Expo 2017. As such, exhibiting at Speciality Caribbean Expo will allow you to introduce your company’s products and/or services directly to potential buyers; establish relationships with buyers from around the globe, while stationed right here in the OECS region.

Additionally, through extensive promotion, Specialty Caribbean Expo will attract large scale participation of local consumers, visitors, prospective importers and members of the OECS diaspora; allowing you as an exhibitor to further grow your firm’s visibility and sales potential within your local and OECS markets.

Moreover, the business exposition will include free seminars for exhibitors, hosted by industry experts.

The basic rate for exhibition at Specialty Caribbean Expo is only EC$600.00.

Surely in today’s constrained Caribbean marketplace and challenging economic landscape, exhibition at Specialty Caribbean Expo may very well be the key to positioning your firm for export success.

Can your business really afford not to take advantage of this unparalleled marketing and exhibition opportunity?

You must be pre-registered to participate. Book your booth space by December 15th 2016.
