Increase Your Revenue and Create Jobs!
There are two ways to increase revenue: You can sell more products to the same customers or you can sell the same products to more customers. If you are not exporting, you are ignoring 70% of the market opportunity for your current products and services.
Export This! will help bring that market opportunity into focus. Executives from other Maryland businesses and Trade Experts will share their knowledge on tapping into the global market and navigating the risks and the regulations and reaping the rewards of exporting.
How do you find the customers for your product or services? How do you finance the international receivables? How can you limit your risks? How do you handle logistics? How can you successfully navigate export regulations and controls? There are good answers and Export This! will address each of these topics:
• Developing markets
• Dealing with Export Controls
• Export assistance resources: Domestic (USEAC), International (US Commercial Services)
• Regulatory hurdles facing exporting companies: Domestic (ITAR, etc), End-market
• Logistic, customs and tariff challenges
• Case studies: Technology product, Commodities, Services
The session will include perspectives from experienced manufacturers, trade experts, regulatory, logistics and finance.
We will also listen carefully to you and take your message back to State and Federal Government regulators about ways they can help improve your exports.
