Canadians are responding to the upcoming First Annual Cross-Border Expo. With the Skagit Bridge being out, more and more BC residents are limiting their cross-border travel to the Bellingham/Whatcom County area north of the bridge. For BC entrepreneurs, Thursday’s Expo will be an excellent opportunity to make business connections in this convenient, nearby corner of the US.
Over 50 exhibitors have signed up to participate in the event, more than half of them are businesses geared towards helping BC companies export to the USA. They include legal, accounting, customs clearance, warehousing, transportation and marketing professionals.
Two seminars are being offered at the Expo, a morning session on Cross-Border Business and Exporting, and an afternoon session on Cross-Border Real Estate Investing. Registration for the seminars is free, but recommended to ensure seating. There are still a few seats left, but registration is booming and spaces are filling up fast so interested persons are encouraged to visit www.crossborderexpo.com as soon as possible to reserve a place in the seminars.
Various door prizes and specials are generating a great deal of interest. The event will take place at the Silver Reef Hotel Casino Spa in Ferndale, Washington. Registration begins at 8:45. The first session, on Cross-Border Business runs from 9:15 to 1:00 PM. At 2:00 PM the Tradeshow Exhibit Floor opens. The second session, on Cross-Border Real Estate Investing runs from 2:15 to 5:30. A Multi-Chamber Business After Business Networking/Social begins at 5:30 and continues until 7:00 PM, when the Tradeshow Floor closes and the event concludes.
The First Annual Cross-Border Expo will be a one-of-a-kind opportunity for Canadian entrepreneurs looking to expand their business to the United States to make connections and get started exporting or investing south of the Border.
