Export Success: More than Shipping Boxes on a Boat
May 18, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Exporting is more than putting boxes on boats and sending them to far away countries. It is about reaching the 95% of the world’s population and nearly 70% of purchasing power that lies outside America’s borders. Is your business ready to reach these customers and expand your sales?
This event is designed to introduce you to the basics of exporting and encourage you to start exploring potential international business opportunities.
Come and discover what it takes to be “export-ready.” Learn about the export services offered to Ohio tax-paying companies – at no additional cost. These services include connecting with Ohio’s foreign-based offices in over 40 countries, introduction to international market access grant funding, participation opportunities in trade missions. As well, learn about export financing.
