The Ministry of Business is heightening preparations for the Guyana Trade Fair and Exposition (GuyExpo), even as preparations are ongoing for Guyana’s Jubilee Independence celebrations.
Businesses exhibiting their products and services at this year’s GuyExpo will have an exclusive opportunity to participate in a range of training workshops organised by the GuyExp0 Secretariat in collaboration with key private sector players.
GuyExpo’s Coordinator Tameca Sukhdeo-Singh said, “We’re looking at workshops that will focus on: how to access financing, to promote businesses through business plans, packaging and promotion, and social media and website development.”
All the workshops will be conducted in the GuyExpo venue, the National Exhibition Complex, Sophia during the period of the trade fair; May 12 – 15, 2016.
Additionally, the new Guyana Marketing Corporation (GMC), along with another local business, will assist exhibitors with challenges they encounter in relation to packaging and product promotion.
The Ministry of Business, is offering support to businesses which would help them develop. Over the years, GuyExpo has served as a launching pad for many successful businesses; this year’s event will be more business – oriented.
GuyExpo 2016 will be held under the theme “50 Years: Guyana means Business – Promoting Enterprise, Driving Productivity”.
