The Americas Trade & Commerce Center is pleased to announce the sponsorship of a new program designed to bring Arizona and Mexico business leaders together.
Tentatively entitled Building Borderland Business and taking place in the boardroom of our new Executive Suites, the monthly executive lunch series plans to unite area business and public leaders to discuss trends and define key opportunities.
The first lunch is scheduled for March 15 and already leaders of the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the Southeastern Arizona Government Organization (SEAGO) in Sierra Vista, and the Arizona/Mexico Commission, Phoenix, have agreed to attend.
Currently headed by Luis F, Parra, Esq., Tucson Hispanic Chamber board member and active local business advocate, the networking program is envisioned as a “think tank”-style forum where business leaders and public groups can work together to fast track opportunities.
“We see this smaller, private setting as being a springboard for sharing actionable ideas.” Parra, who typically commutes weekly between Tucson, Nogales and the neighboring state of Sonora, noted the need for more “dialogue” between the key cities about opportunities created by the exploding economy in Mexico and the $230M expansion of the local Port, among other trends.
Building co-owner/partner David Jeong, sponsor of the event is pleased to open his Executive Suites’ Boardroom to the group, noting: “It provides a professional and private setting where guests can comfortably enjoy a served lunch, A/V presentations and each other’s company.”
The planned monthly format includes a catered lunch followed by a keynote speaker and roundtable discussions. Each public organization attending will be requested to bring along one to two members/business owners to maximize networking among the guests.
Due to limited dining capacity for up to a dozen guests, the complimentary lunches are planned as invitation-only on a first-come, waiting-list basis, with current building tenants receiving priority. The program is underwritten by The Americas Trade & Commerce Center (TAC) and is not for profit.
