Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturers’ Association (TTMA) to host region’s biggest trade show in June

Port of Spain – The fourteenth annual Trade and Investment Convention (TIC), hosted by the Trinidad and Tobago Manufacturers’ Association (TTMA), will be held at the Hyatt Regency, Port of Spain from June 12th-15th, 2013. One of the largest and most influential business-to-business events in the region, TIC focuses on business networking and trade, and includes a tradeshow, business to business matchmaking, a business education programme and structured networking events.

TIC has proven very effective in expanding intra-and extra regional trade, attracting manufacturers, services providers, buyers, distributors, financial institutions and investors. More than 200 companies exhibited products in 175 booths on the multi-sectoral tradeshow floor in 2012. The show generated approximately US$50 million in trade.

Organisers say 5,000 pre-qualified local and international buyers from more than 38 countries will attend TIC 2013, while 220 businesses will exhibit. The show will also include mega pavilions showcasing energy, agriculture and tourism, as well as country pavilions from the European Union, Brazil and Costa Rica.

The convention which is sponsored by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Investment receives the full support of the Ministry in its mandate to attract quality buyers to Trinidad and Tobago each year to conduct trade, network and create new business opportunities.
