Trade Competitiveness and Customs Fair

On October 4 and 5, 2018, Tijuana’s Customs Secretariat (SAT) will be hosting the second Trade Competitiveness and Customs Fair at their headquarters located just south of the Otay Port of Entry. The Chamber, along other organizations, has partnered with SAT in joint efforts to increase our region’s global competitiveness through the promotion and facilitation of cross-border commerce.

The first fair took place earlier this year, with 322 business-to-business meetings connecting suppliers and vendors from both sides of the border, conferences and workshops on trade related subjects, and stands to promote products and services. With a successful first event, SAT is replicating the Trade Competitiveness and Customs fair in other states and organizing a second fair in Tijuana with the objective of increasing its reach and strengthening our binational region’s supply chain by including the cities of Tecate, Mexicali and Ensenada. Just as on the first fair, businesses are able to participate through three different dynamics:

  1. B2B meetings
  2. Conferences and workshops on trade related subjects such as NAFTA and tariffs, customs processing updates, and new regulations – Translators available depending on the topic.
  3. Stands to promote products and services (participating fee).
