Exporting: A Strategic Business Growth Opportunity
November 3, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am| Free
Join World Trade Center Northern California in partnership with Sacramento Valley Manufacturing Alliance (SVMA) for an online discussion to learn how your manufacturing business can benefit from pivoting to an international market.
The pandemic has shown that manufacturers with diversified markets and export revenue were better positioned to navigate the economic disruption than those with only domestic customers. Exporting can be a strategic step for companies who want to reduce the impact of economic cycles on their business, find new markets for their product, and plan for growth and resiliency.
Join us to learn how exporting can benefit your business. Hear from other manufacturers about how a strategic export plan helped their companies grow and become better equipped to handle business challenges.
How do I get started in international trade? What are the fundamentals of exporting? What resources are available to help my team? We’ll cover these topics and discuss how companies have confidently taken that next step to grow their manufacturing business through international trade.
The presenter will:
- Share insights into the fundamentals of exporting
- Discuss how to manage potential risk
- Offer next steps to take your business global
Recommended for manufacturing companies that are looking for a strategic growth opportunity for their business and want to find new markets for their products.
