The 2016 Small Business Expo, put on by the Cayman Islands
Small Business Association (CISBA), highlighted 35 entrepreneurs to
hundreds of residents on Saturday, 28 May.
Titled 'Synergy,' and held at the University College of
the Cayman Islands Hall, CISBA President Dawn McLean-Sawney said
the expo strengthened commercial relationships.
'Our challenge now is to build on this success and ensure
that next year's expo, tentatively set for April 2017, can
deliver on business owners' expectations', she said.
Mrs McLean-Sawney noted that the Ministry of Commerce
collaborated with CISBA in organising the expo.
'As an association, we hope to work with the Ministry and
other stakeholders on addressing the challenges that small business
owners face so that, ultimately, they are in a better position to
be successful,' she said.
The expo showcased an array of businesses, from health care
specialists to computer repair companies. Several workshops also
took place throughout the day, covering topics from customer
service and digital marketing tips, to retail pricing techniques
and health insurance information.
Temporary Minister for Commerce, Councillor Roy McTaggart,
highlighted a number of developments in commerce during his keynote
address – from the latest steps to modernise Cayman's
intellectual property laws, to new public-private sector
partnerships. Mr McTaggart stood in for Commerce Minister Wayne
Panton – who visited the expo later in the day, after he
returned to Cayman from overseas official business.
Ministry Deputy Chief Officer Tamara Ebanks said the expo
enjoyed one of the highest exhibitor turnouts in its four-year
'The Ministry is pleased with the level of community support
the expo generated. The small businesses that were on display spoke
positively about the level of exposure they received. From what we
observed on Saturday, they made the most of this marketing
opportunity by reaching out to potential clients they otherwise may
'Based on the feedback we received, the Ministry and CISBA
are confident that the expo will continue to benefit the local
business community for years to come', she said.
This year's corporate sponsors were Hurley's Media,
Digicel Business and DART Enterprises Ltd (gold sponsors); Cayman
News Service Business (silver sponsor); and Cayman Enterprise City,
Cayman National Bank, and RBC Royal Bank (Cayman) Ltd (bronze
