TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening on Friday, May 30, 2014 Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild is hosting the first ever Borderlands Trade Conference.

According to a recent release the conference will host business leaders and other dignitaries from across Southern Arizona and Northern Mexico. The Borderlands Trade Conference is an initiative set up by Mayor Rothschild, as part of his two year plan to increase both trade and business between Tucson and Mexico.

"I put this conference together to give Tucson companies information about exporting to Mexico, and Mexican companies information about establishing a U.S. headquarters in Tucson," said Mayor Rothschild in the release.  "I'm extremely pleased at the level of interest and the quality and credentials of the presenters." 

Rothschild assures the conference will be packed with practical and useful information, and all the basics for conducting business in either country.

There are 300 people from Southern Arizona and Mexico slated to attend the conference, happening at J.W. Marriott Starr Pass Resort from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
