Invest Caribbean Set For Regional Debut

Carib PR Newswire, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. August 19, 2011: Invest Caribbean will make its regional debut this Fall, descending on the city of Montego Bay, Jamaica on October 14th for another innovative investment forum.

The October event is being presented by Hard Beat Communications, in collaboration with the Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce, and is set for the Rose Hall convention center as part of the Chamber’s 14th annual expo that will be presented under the theme, ”Unleashing Innovations.”

The expo will be opened by Assistant Secretary General of the OAS, Ambassador Albert Ramdin and will include the Invest Caribbean forum as part of the opening day.

The high-powered trade exposition will unleash innovative marketing and promotion opportunities for exhibitors in ways that the MBCCI Expo has never been staged. The event has become a calendar event for the Chamber and western Jamaica and boasts a wide diversity of exhibitors in industry and commerce, displaying their goods and services. These include manufactured goods, services, technology, tourism, craft, agriculture, trade and investment. The MBCCI Expo is in its 14th year and will be targeting some 115 exhibitors.


The three-hour Invest Caribbean forum will feature three U.S. investors, including Adam Borden, founder and managing director of Bradmer Foods, LLC. Each will present a five minute overview of their company and what they look for in investments, before engaging in a face-to-face match making session with registered entrepreneurs.
The Invest Caribbean series is the brainchild of Hard Beat Communications’ CEO Felicia Persaud who sees the opportunity as the perfect way to partner high end investors seeking new opportunities in the Caribbean, with entrepreneurs and ministers/chambers in the region.

Invest Caribbean recently concluded a successful forum with the Caribbean Tourism Organization during Caribbean Week in New York, June 9, 2011.

“The June 2011 Invest Caribbean event delivered on the objective of the Caribbean Tourism Organization. It gave our members the assurance that investors perceive the Caribbean as an attractive region in which to do business and presented a great opportunity to begin the dialogue,” said Sylma Brown Bramble, Director, CTO North America.

“The ‘Investing in Paradise’ breakfast forum was a highly worthwhile gathering for those seeking opportunities in the exciting Caribbean frontier markets. The organizers attracted an excellent mix of existing and potential investors in the region complimented by government ministers and tourism sector executives. The presenters at ‘Investing in Paradise’ made an excellent case for what distinguishes the Caribbean from other destinations in the fierce race for international capital,” added Harold E. Doley, III, Principal of The Lugano Group Incorporated.
