Chamber forms alliance with Hispanic Business Center

NORTHEAST– The Houston Intercontinental Chamber of Commerce announced the July 19th opening of a new satellite office in north Houston dedicated to international business and chamber members.
The new office was created in a partnership with the Hispanic Business Center (HBC) and will be in the HBC building, located at 12700 Northborough near 1-45 and Beltway 8, a few miles from Bush Intercontinental Airport and just minutes from downtown.
HBC, owned by Aiejandro Del Valle and opened in February 2011, was created to provide business opportunities for Mexican and international businesses wishing to do business in or expand to Houston and US markets. It is expected that the HBC will bring businesses and jobs to the area.
“This is one of the most significant events in the Chamber’s 25-year history,” commented Reggie Gray, President of HICC. “This new partnership will allow the Chamber to focus on our growing international membership and especially on our growing Latin American markets.” “We consider it an honor to be chosen by Mr. Del Valle and several leaders of Mexico for this partnership.”
The Chamber will open the offices on July 19th, and held a membership mixer on Thursday, July 21, at the Greenspoint Club to celebrate the new partnership. The formal ribbon cutting will be in August at the HBC building.
Del Valle and Gray recently travelled to Guadalajara, Mexico for meetings with several company owners, entrepreneurs, and public officials to announce the partnership.
