Linden Expo – linking businesses and potential investors
DPI, GUYANA, Friday, April 6, 2018
The Linden Chamber of Industry, Commerce and Development is set to host the ninth Annual Linden Exposition at the Linden Technical Institute Ground from April 27-29.
Under the theme “Exploring Opportunities, Empowering Businesses in a Green 2018” the expo will seek to showcase the products coming out of Linden, highlight the region as a place for investment and establish a link between businesses and potential investors for expansion and growth. The event will function as a forum where micro and macro enterprises can meet and promote local industries operating in manufacturing and agro-processing.
Secretary of the Linden Chamber of Industry, Commerce and Development, Staydon Payne noted that “we’re seeing a lot of momentum with interest from local businesses and from national partners, also some international agencies would’ve already confirmed. ExxonMobil will be there on display, the American embassy will be there, we have the Small Business Bureau, New Guyana Marketing and more. All those businesses and agents will be on display for persons to receive information so that they can get better understand what is happening in the private sector within the region.”
The expo, previously held at the Egbert Benjamin Conference Centre, has since been catering to bigger investors and larger crowds.
The first Linden Expo organised by the Linden Chamber of Industry, Commerce and Development was held in 2009, following the retrenchment of several BOSAI workers. The executives, realizing that money circulating in the community would be reduced significantly and businesses would suffer accordingly, created the Linden Expo to showcase the locally produced and manufactured goods in the region to the potential investors.
