International Business Week 2019

7 day(s)


This year’s Barbados International Business Week will run from Sunday, October 20 through Saturday, October 26. Several informative and educational activities have been planned to mark this occasion.

Now in its 11th year, the Barbados International Business Association (BIBA), Invest Barbados and other strategic partners from the public and private sector, will come together during this week and highlight the importance of the sector and its contribution to the country’s economy. The week also serves as an opportunity to showcase Barbados as the domicile of choice for global business.

The week of activities comprises a church service, which will be held at the Covenant Life Teaching Centre, Green Hill, St. Michael; a school’s symposium at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre; a public discussion forum at the Courtney Blackman Grande Salle; a Careers Showcase at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus and a charity 5K Walk/Run.

The week’s flagship event, the International Business Week Conference, will be held from Thursday, October 24 to Friday, October 25, at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Conference Centre. The theme of the two-day conference is ‘Harnessing Global Opportunities’. Invest Barbados, Diamond Sponsor, continues to lead the charge in the coordination and execution of this event, in collaboration with BIBA, to ensure that the local business fraternity is kept abreast of the latest developments that impact the sector.

Attendees can look forward to two days of thought-provoking and insightful presentations from eminent local and international industry experts, who will present on a range of topics that impact business in Barbados, regionally and globally.
