Cross-border business, investment a focus of June 6 expo

The Ferndale Chamber of Commerce and Silver Reef Hotel Casino Spa will host the first annual Cross-Border Expo, which will showcase more than 60 exhibitors and feature two educational sessions aimed at cross-border business, marketing and distribution and cross-border real estate investment, on Thursday, June 6.

Vendor exhibits will be housed in the new Event Center at Silver Reef, and the seminars will be conducted in the adjoining theater.

The expo will also be the focal point of a Cross-Border Weekend Getaway, which will cater to the new 24-hour ($200) and 48-hour ($800) customs exemptions for returning Canadian residents. Tourists will be provided with a variety of suggested visits and tours courtesy of Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism, and investors will be provided with similar opportunities by local real estate and economic development representatives.

The evening portion of the expo will feature an All Chamber Business After Hours event providing networking opportunities for local chambers of commerce on both sides of the border.
