Free Seminar on Supplying EDC Companies, Pre-registration Extended to April 8

The V.I. Economic Development Commission will host a seminar for businesses certified as Eligible Virgin Islands Suppliers, enabling them to get the inside track on supplying EDC tax beneficiary companies, April 14 on St. Croix and April 16 on St. Thomas. The status places them on a list of suppliers the EDC tells beneficiaries are definitely considered local for the purposes of their benefit requirements. Being on the list results in business coming your way

The St. Croix meeting April 14 will be at the University of the Virgin Islands’ Great Hall and the St.Thomas meeting April 16 will be at the University of the Virgin Islands Administration and Conference Center Building on St. Thomas. On both islands, registration will begin at noon just before the seminar followed by the general session that will be held from 1-5 p.m. A “Meet & Greet” Exhibition will also be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Attendees will learn how to participate in the procurement activities of companies under the EDC. The attendees will also have the opportunity to obtain information on the rules and regulations, and procurement procedures of the Economic Development Program. Eligible Virgin Islands Suppliers will also learn about compliance requirements and the available technical assistance that would assist them in promoting their business to EDC companies.
During the seminar, economic development practitioners from the VIEDA and other professionals from the V.I.’s public and private sector will deliver presentations on economic development and lending programs, the intricacies of hotel procurement, small business marketing strategies, and improving project management skills.
All Eligible Virgin Islands Suppliers are encouraged to attend and network with other eligible suppliers from various industries.
