Business Expo 2010 open

The 19th
Business Expo was officially opened to invited guests on Thursday
evening, and to the general public on Friday afternoon.

Chamber
CEO Wil Pineau and Chamber President Stuart Bostock welcomed approximately 200
visitors and over 40 exhibitors to the opening celebration of this year’s
event.

Delivering a message from Premier McKeeva Bush, who was unable to
attend, Minister for Housing and Community Affairs Mike Adam noted the
remarkable progress the event has made over the past 20
years.

Mr. Adam
said the Business Expo continues to grow from relatively humble beginnings 20
years ago into the islands’ main business showcase event presenting the latest
technology advancements and state of the art services offered by local
merchants.

“This
opportunity to bring together local businesses and services, especially during
these tough economic times, speaks to the resilience and dedication of the
Cayman Islands business community,” he said.

There
have been steady numbers of exhibitors who have been generously given back to
the community by offering a variety of cross-savings and speciality discounts,
he added.

Mr. Adam
further commended the Chamber of Commerce for facilitating the local and
international business community and hosting the event.

The
Business Expo, which for the third time is held at the Family Life Centre,
features exhibitors from a wide variety of businesses from start-ups to
multinational affiliates across different industries.

The
event is open to the public on Friday from 12am until 8pm and on Saturday from
10am until 4pm.
