NHCA Making History:Over 100 Hispanic Contractors on Capitol Hill
The Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (GWHCC) and Metro DC Hispanic Contractors Association (MDCHCA) just completed the first phase of a process created to increase the share of construction business that accrues to small, locally based sub-contractors in the Washington DC region.
The process began in a February 15th breakfast with a frank discussion among construction project owners, large general contractors and representatives...
Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
Our goal is to present an exhibit featuring 10 of the most important & diverse construction and construction related firms in the region chosen from the network of Metro DC Hispanic Contractors Association and provide them with a showcase at the GWHCC 2018 Business Expo on March 16, 2018 in order to highlight the vibrancy and dynamism of the local Latino construction community.
We want to provide an exciting space where Expo attendees can view the achievements and progress of local Hispanic owned firms in the industry. Visitors will also hear from experts in the construction field explain what it takes to create and maintain a construction business in the local market.
Biz Expo attendees will receive information on innovative trends, projects, bid requirements, safety, banking, bonding and insurances as well as testimonials from successful business owners in the field. An agenda of topics is under development and will be presented formally before the event.
A local architect is designing the exhibition space and various general contractors will create an environment that will invite Expo goers to explore the changing face of construction in the area and the rise of Latino businesses in this sector. The design of the exhibit will emphasize the strengths of Hispanics in construction; solid performances, attention to detail and on-time, on budget delivery of services, transparency and ethics in their operations and ambitious and aggressive efforts to build their companies and advance their portfolios.
Various industry leaders will offer their time to meet with visitors and share their knowledge of the industry and provide testimonials as to the impressive array of construction businesses and the results of working with our companies.
Exhibit space at the village is limited. The cost for participating in this innovative new format is $2,000. Each exhibitor will be encouraged to decorate their designated space with banners, free standing banners, information materials, hand outs and special presentations.
