There was a large turnout at last week’s Cache Business Summit, held April 20, at the Riverwoods Conference Center in Logan. Cache Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Sandy Emile said the event provided a great deal of helpful information, especially from keynote speaker Derek Miller, president and CEO of <a href=”http://wtcutah.com/”>World Trade Center Utah</a>.
Emile said Miller told those attending that Utah’s economy is the fastest growing in the U.S., with the sixth fastest growing export economy. In addition to speaking, Miller provided two awards to local businesses that have done an excellent job in exporting globally.
“The first award Vanguard Award went to Liz Butcher and her family with <a href=”https://www.butchersbunches.com/”>Butcher’s Bunches</a>,” Emile said, “for the outstanding job she has done growing her jams and presenting them all over the world for people to enjoy, and then the second award went to Workforce Services.”
Emile said the <a href=”https://jobs.utah.gov/”>Department of Workforce Services</a> is the best resource the Chamber has when it comes to helping organizations obtain the tools and resources they need to expand their businesses to the international marketplace.
