The event, under the theme ”Expanding Investment in a Sustainable Environment” and running for six days, features some 300 booths, among whom are Brazilians, Mexicans, Surinamese and Indians. Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce, Manniram Prashad described the event as the ideal meeting place for Guyanese to showcase talent, entrepreneurship, creativity, skills and products and services.
In addition to providing a platform for businesses and consumers to network and negotiate, it also entails investments, educational seminars and entertainment.

  1. Every year GuyExpo is getting bigger and better thereby posing greater business prospects for entrepreneurs and also stakeholders within the various industries whilst showcasing “what Guyana has to offer on the whole”. This is a strategic activity in which Guyana could be additionally marketed as a tourist destination for Agro-Tourism. Congratulations to the Government in pulling off yet another successful GuyExpo this 2010.
