The annual conference of the Southeastern United States-Canadian Provinces Alliance (SEUS-CP) is heading to the beach for the first time.
On May 20-22 2012 the conference will be held at the Marriott -Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach. This years conference is happening right now in New Brunswick, Canada and is being hosted by Premier David Alward and Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour. The aim of the conference is to bring more business to the Grand Strand and show that we are much more than a place to vacation.
It's no secret that Canadian's love them some Myrtle Beach and we're sure they would jump at the idea to bring a branch of their businesses here just for the chance to live and play here all year round. Head on over to The Sun News for all the details of this upcoming event and read a bit about how chairman of the Horry County Council, Tom Rice hopes next years event benefits us along the Grand Strand.
