Guam - Featuring close to 50 exhibitors in hopes of strengthening our export industry locally, the Guam Economic Development Authority and the Guam Small Business Development Center are hosting the first Guam Export Trade Show. GEDA administrator Karl Pangelinan says it has all the makings of a great show.

"There's a lot of tie-ins with a bunch of GEDA programs that we feature with regards to the Guam Product Seal that just got put back into the GEDA as well as the buy-local movement; and that just sort of blended in with the whole export objective," he told KUAM News.

The show kicks-off tomorrow morning with an invite-only session featuring off-island keynote speakers followed by the trade show event that is free and open to the public featuring local product exhibits, special guest speakers and entertainment. GETS 2012 takes place Saturday from 12pm to 5pm at the Hyatt Regency Guam.
