Irwindale Chamber heading to Egypt

The Irwindale Chamber of Commerce is going to take a trip to Egypt, and what’s you to join it. I called the Chamber to get more info, but the office is closed today.

I’m not sure what the details are…like cost and why and who this is open to and whether any tax dollars are involved, but here is the press release:

– The Irwindale Chamber of Commerce invites you to travel with the chamber to Egypt, departing March 5-13, 2010. Cruise the Nile on traditional feluccas, discover unforgettable attractions like the Pyramids and bustling Cairo, the chaotic bazaars and the fascinating Nile-side towns.

Indus Travels will host a pre-tour presentation on Wednesday, June 17, from 5:30 – 7:30 PM at the Irwindale Community Center, located at 16102 Arrow Hwy, Irwindale. For more information please contact the Irwindale Chamber of Commerce at (626) 960-6606.

    I am happy to answer your questions. The trips promoted by our chamber are paid for by the travelers themselves. The cost of this tour ranges from $2450-$3000 pp dbl occupancy depending on departure airport. The tour is open to anyone that wishes to go. We have promoted similar tours for the past five years to places such as China, India, Greece, Tuscany and Ireland.

    Why do we do this? As a benefit to our members who get discounted travel, networking opportunities and the opportunity to learn about how business is conducted in other countries. On request we also work to arrange business meetings for those interested in trade opportunities.

    For more information, please attend the meeting on Wednesday evening (June 17th @ 5:30 pm)or use this link to see the tour flyer.
