2016 Orange County Asian Business Expo

The Orange County Asian Business Expo has been our passion since 2011. And we are proud of our achievement! The sixth ever joint Korean, Vietnamese, Filipino, Cambodian, Irvine, North Orange County and Garden Grove Chamber of Commerce, PTCA, China US Business Association, SABAN, AABWA, HKASC, ABAOC, IABC, NAAAP, FTIN and AWE Business Expo will promote economic growth, and social and professional interaction between the many emerging Asian American markets in the United States. This will generate goodwill between the community and more importantly increase the purchasing power and ability to obtain government vendor and supplier contracts, and ability to work directly with large private corporations.
