Asian Small Business Expo comes to Alhambra

The 13th Annual Asian Small Business Expo will take place on Sept. 22 at Almansor Court in Alhambra. Hosted by the Asian Pacific Islander Small Business Program (API SBP), the expo will feature more than 40 exhibitors and offer several bilingual workshops. Educational materials will also be provided in multiple languages.

The API SBP, a nonprofit organization that helps small businesses in Los Angeles, usually holds their event Downtown. This year, they decided to move the Asian Small Business Expo to Alhambra. “We know from our registration and customer surveys that a fair number of past attendees reside and/or do business in the San Gabriel Valley,” API SBP Director Ron Fong said. “We are also intrigued by the efforts of a few of the cities in the SGV and various organizations such as local and ethnic chambers of commerce that are working to promote and sustain small business activity in the area.”

The organization focuses primarily on Chinatown and portions of San Gabriel Valley, Koreatown, Little Tokyo, Thai Town, and Filipino business communities, especially those made up of low-income immigrants.  API SBP brings together local community organizations to offer multilingual business counseling at no charge. With the support of the U.S. Small Business Administration and several corporate sponsors, they collectively offer business counseling in English, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Tagalog, Thai, and several Chinese dialects.

Fong believes that the Asian Small Business expo can offer resources to anyone conducting business in the San Gabriel Valley. “Our Expo should be of interest to any entrepreneur interested in starting or expanding a small business,” Fong said. “Or any business interested in attracting more Asian customers.”

The 13th Annual Asian Small Business Expo will take place on Saturday, Sept. 22nd from 9 am – 1 p.m at Almansor Court. The event is free to the public. API SPB also hosts workshops throughout the year across Los Angeles County. Their website is www.apisbp.org.
