MAPLE Summer Event 2018 - San Diego

  • Taylor Guitars Corporate Headquarters 1900 Gillespie Way El Cajon, CA, 92020 United States (map)

At MAPLE we bring together executives, investors, service providers and entrepreneurs interested in exploring cross-border investment, trade and entrepreneurship opportunities between Southern California and Canada.

Join us for our Summer Member Networking Event. We are excited to be welcoming our guests to the headquarters of Taylor Guitars in El Cajon. A private tour will be available immediately following our event.

We have two great speakers scheduled.

Representatives from Opportunities NB (New Brunswick) are traveling to Southern California to provide an update on the cybersecurity and digital health sectors in the Province of New Brunswick in Atlantic Canada. They will also share an overview of their Workforce Strategy model.

D'Alessio Law Group will give a presentation on planning your cross-border move. Many Canadian businesses have considered expanding to Southern California, looking to capitalize on dynamic industries like digital media and entertainment. The same goes for SoCal firms casting their gaze towards Canada, where film, TV, and tech have flourished as well.

In this talk, immigration attorney and founding partner of D'Alessio Law Group, Lorraine D'Alessio, will share insights on planning a cross-border move, whether to Canada or the Golden State. The program will explain solutions to common immigration challenges, along with tips for a pain-free process. Learn how to find the right visas and permits, transfer key staff, and more.

Following our MAPLE meeting, Taylor Guitars has graciously extended an invitation to provide a private tour of how they craft their world class guitars. We look forward to seeing you at our San Diego Summer Event.
