Federation 2015: Fabulous Las Vegas is Ground Zero for B2B Matching Meetings on Nov. 6-8, 2015

San Francisco, California --- October 19, 2015 --- "Bridging Trans-Pacific Commerce in a Changing World" is a timely theme for a biennial business conference. Whether it is face-to-face or via skype and other technological tools, the Federation of Philippine American Chambers of Commerce (FPACC) is ramping up its preparations to receive their local delegates from Filipino American chambers of commerce and other business organizations, interested business owners and entrepreneurs, and guests from the Philippines who are members of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry's Philippines-USA Economic and Business Council (PUBC). Philippine delegates are meeting face to face with potential US partners such as suppliers, consumers, manufacturers, or representatives of business interests ranging from bolts and nuts, BPOs (business process outsourcing), VCO products (virgin coconut oil) to bamboo-related industries. A workshop on business development in US markets as well as micro-seminars and informal relationship-building sessions will complement one-on-one meetings of prospective domestic or international partners. The Business-to-Business Matching opportunities do not end with the conference. A post-event continuation of milestones and activities is being scheduled to provide momentum for expected Memos of Understanding that will be signed during the Las Vegas gathering. For those who are interested in the B2B focus of Federation 2015, a complete list of needs is available athttp://FPACC.net. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
