By January 26, 2016 No Comments

On January 26, 2016, LAEDC hosted the annual Consular Corps Reception, co-located with the annual VerdeXchange conference, to celebrate the approximately 100 consulates located in L.A. County, and bring together those dedicated professionals who encourage international trade and investment in the L.A. region.  The program included a presentation by Lisa Gritzner of Cerrell Associates, sponsored by Cerrell Associates, who discussed the ways to successfully navigate the complexities of doing economic development work with the County and its 88 cities, and she had useful information for those in attendance, especially pertaining to new projects and locating businesses in the region.  World Trade Center Los Angeles president Stephen Cheung was also on hand to welcome the distinguished crowd.  Additionally, the cocktail reception afterwards was sponsored by Tri-Counties Association of Realtors, and Tim Shaw their government affairs director was there with colleagues.  It was an enjoyable networking opportunity for all, with many valuable connections and conversations.  Please enjoy some photos from the evening.
