Virtual Cuba Tradeshow

We are working on organizing virtual tradeshow featuring businesses, organizations, travel agencies and individuals that would like to meet with others who share their interests in Cuba. 

We are trying to secure a Founding Sponsor that will provide us with the resources to make this virtual tradeshow a reality. 

We are also talking with several potential key note speakers as well as other parties that will host a variety of learning tracks. 

Our idea is to build a professional web conferencing platform that will look and feel like a real tradeshow without having everyone meet in one physical location. Think video meets chat meets blogging meets remote learning. Oh yeah, throw in some good old fashion networking too. 

Our first tradeshow will be a one day event. Check back for updates or contact us if you want to be a Founding Sponsor or if you have expertise that would benefit our group of people interested in Cuba business, culture, politics and travel related issues. Our corporate parent, Havana Journal Inc., hosted a Learn About Cuba seminar in September 2008 and organized a Cuban Art and culture conference in Massachusetts in June 2010.
