The event, dedicated exclusively to Great Britain, began with a Business Forum, in which nine British companies (all new to the Dominican market), presented their company and showcased their products- and later interested Dominican businessmen and entrepreneurs were given the opportunity to not only welcome these companies, but also to make invaluable business connections for the future.

The companies who took part in the Business Forum were: Bicom Systems (telecommunications); Caribbean Trading Ltd (Food and Drink); EBLEX (Food); Green Future Fuels (Oil); Hockley International (Chemicals); Rossa Consulting (Construction); Saint Michael’s College (Education); TVET UK (Education).
