Orange County has one of the fastest growing Asian population and businesses in the country. The Asian businesses are no longer the small “mom and pop” stores but leaders and innovators in various industries, reshaping the mainstream economy, locally and internationally!
Attendees of the Expo will have a “once-in-a-year” opportunity to network, face-to-face, with vast array of Asian businesses and learn more about each other in one setting. Each of the booth sponsors would be given an opportunity to market their business, via video and/or on stage. This would be a great opportunity for anyone to gain direct access and contact with businesses that would otherwise be inaccessible and unapproachable. Few of the participants will be coming from overseas, just to capitalize on this moment.
President, Korean American Chamber of Commerce of O.C.
The Orange County Asian Business Expo has been our passion since 2011. And we are proud of our achievement! The sixth ever joint Korean, Vietnamese, Filipino, Cambodian, Irvine, North Orange County and Garden Grove Chamber of Commerce, PTCA, China US Business Association, SABAN, AABWA, HKASC, ABAOC, IABC, NAAAP, FTIN and AWE Business Expo will promote economic growth, and social and professional interaction between the many emerging Asian American markets in the United States. This will generate goodwill between the community and more importantly increase the purchasing power and ability to obtain government vendor and supplier contracts, and ability to work directly with large private corporations.
Chairman, 2016 O.C. Asian Business Expo Committee
Asian Businesses in Orange County are no longer the small “mom and pop” stores serving just the Asian communities but are “movers and shakers” in our mainstream economy. They have brought many “fresh ideas” catering to various demands in diverse industries. The Asian population in Orange County is growing exponentially, along with international trade. This Expo is a testament to this trend as it has attracted more than 1,000 guests each year and the number continues to grow. I hope this event will not only solidify the network of Asian businesses but also form new business ties with the attendees from all different backgrounds. Everyone should take advantage of this once in a year event, where a face-to-face meeting across diverse Asian businesses is possible.
