(Guam – Feb. 16, 2018) – Society for American Military Engineers (SAME) Guam Post, organizers for the Guam Industry Forum 2018, announced today that while Guam Industry Forum Trade Show (GIFT) exhibitor space has sold out, other sponsorship opportunities are still available. Organizers also encouraged interested businesses to register now as they expect the Forum to sell out. The Guam Industry Forum 2018 will take place over three days from March 7 to 9, 2018 at the Dusit Thani Guam Resort’s Guam Convention Center.
Organizers expect about 500 local and international attendees that will include government and military leaders, engineers, construction prime contractors, subcontractors and material and product suppliers. Attendees at the Forum are primarily interested in learning about construction and development opportunities associated with the relocation of the U.S. Marine Corps forces to Guam.
John Robertson, President of SAME Guam Post said, “We are still accepting applications from businesses interested in sponsoring the Forum. While our trade show exhibitor space is sold out, there are opportunities available for businesses to become sponsors of the event. We believe that sponsoring the Forum will provide valuable exposure for businesses and offers a great return on their investment.”
Additionally, SAME Guam Post has scheduled strategic networking session breaks and cocktail receptions on the trade show floor to encourage interaction with GIFT exhibitors. Attendees will have the chance to meet key decision makers for the relocation efforts, as well as establish connections with other local and international business representatives. GIFT will be exclusive to Forum attendees and not open to the public.
Robertson added, “There are so many opportunities associated with the relocation. SAME Guam Post wants to ensure that anyone interested is able to compete and do good business as a result of the investments being made. Interest in the event is great, and we encourage businesses who offer products or services beneficial to this industry to participate.”
