The Chamber offers a variety of events that serve to promote its international advocacy efforts. We invite you to look at our selection of events below and consider signing up for the events newsletter in order to stay abreast of all event updates.
Cross-Border Business Forum
The Cross-Border Business Forum is a Chamber signature event, which brings together key elected officials from both sides of the border with a goal to align priorities and opportunities for the Cali-Baja region.
With a $230 billion economy, the Cali-Baja Mega-Region represents a tremendous growth opportunity for all industries, including manufacturing, biotech, agriculture, clean tech, medical tourism, and more. Through the Cross-Border Business Forums, the Chamber provides business leaders the essential knowledge and resources needed to thrive within the binational marketplace.
Meetings are held quarterly, and alternate between the San Diego Regional Chamber office and the Club de Empresarios in Tijuana.
