Aruba Business Conference 2013

From May 5th till May 8th 2013 the trade mission “Europe meets the Americas” was held on Aruba. The conference offered the unique opportunity to connect face-to-face with potential partners from Latin America, the Caribbean region, Europe all present in one place. The three-day program provided valuable information on both the opportunities as well as cultural practices within the different continents and regions, presented by prominent international speakers. Spigt Dutch Caribbean was one of the sponsors of this conference.

The specific focus areas for the Europe Meets the Americas Business Conference were:

  • Sustainability, specifically the areas of infrastructure, food, clean energy, and construction;
  • Logistics, in particular regional and natural distribution centers for retailers, green products, etc. should be pursued to serve the Caribbean and Latin markets, and
  • Business and Professional Services Industry, for example legal and tax support, back-office support operations (niche markets) including customer support and telemarketing call centers, accounting and payroll services, processing facilities, administrative support, and headquarters.
