Nareca Swann, is the young entrepreneur and founder of the Go-Global brand.
She is encouraging companies to showcase their businesses and services at this first expo which will be held annually. Swann’s long-term vision is to expand the initiative to the other islands of The Bahamas, then into the Caribbean, and around the world. The Go-Trade team is comprised of Sheanda Cooper-Rolle (legal advisor), Joyanne Roache (VP Marketing), Dadawn Charlton-Pinder (Fashion & Event Coordinator), Nathaniel P. Lewis (VP Branding & Media Relations); Derek Carroll (Graphics); and media partners TheBahamasWeekly.com.
“For the past 10 tens years I have observed the economy of Grand Bahama. The slow down here has opened my eyes, and made me study and compare against the international market, especially since I deal with global clients in my family business every day.
“We need to connect with international companies to revive our economy,” said Swann. “This investment will create more jobs, and put us on the map internationally.”

Aside from business executives, the event also caters to those with specific talents and skills who may not own, but want to own a business. The event will show these individuals how to market themselves, and how to professionally present themselves, and their work, to potential clients or employers.
Connecting talented individuals and future entrepreneurs, Go-Trade Business Expo will bring together people, products, and services. Grand Bahama has a lot of talent and diverse people: from the budding artist, straw vendor, the pop singer, or business-savvy individual. “I want to connect my people to the world,” said Swann.
A Family Fun Day component has just been added to the program. Children can expect Barney , Dora, SpongeBob, three bouncing castles, and face painting.
