The Guam Economic Development Authority and the Guam Small Business Development Center are hosting the very first Guam Export Trade Show (GETS 2012). The 3-Day Event will be held from September 20 to September 22, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Tumon Bay, Guam. The main objectives for the GETS 2012 are to: support and promote exporting by developing local small businesses; enhance Guam's tourism by offering more local products and services; promote the growth potential for local small businesses.
The GETS 2012 event will feature local exhibitors involved in exporting, trade liaisons from Russia and U.S. Commercial Services representatives from Hawaii. The governor of Guam will open the ceremonies and Ms. Eriksson will present the keynote address.
Prior to the trade show, Ms. Eriksson will conduct the Riddle of the Exporter™ two-day training. This seminar presents an eight-step process for new exporters to understand and conquer the world of exporting. Ms. Eriksson brought The Riddle of the Exporter™ to Guam last year. The training in combination with the Guam SBDC efforts has resulted in four Guam export success stories to date. Casey Jeszenka, Director of the Pacific Island Small Business Development Center Network commented, “Our long term strategic plan has always included developing exports throughout the Pacific Island SBDC network. Elyse helped us get the program going and we have run with it. The GETS 2012 is the culmination of our continued efforts.”
