SAN FRANCISCO— Delegates from Filipino American chambers of commerce and other business organizations, interested business owners and entrepreneurs, and guests from the Philippines will gather in Las Vegas November 6 to 8 for “B2B matching meetings.”

“Bridging Trans-Pacific Commerce in a Changing World” is the theme of the biennial business conference hosted by the Federation of Philippine American Chambers of Commerce (FPACC). Members of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Philippines-USA Economic and Business Council (PUBC) are expected to attend the business-to-business match-ups.
