Wisconsin Export Growth Week 2015
Location: WEDC (201 West Washington Avenue, Madison)
Exporting is essential for businesses that want to grow, and there is a profitable export market (or several) waiting for nearly every product or service produced in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) contracts with a network of international trade representatives covering 54 countries. During the first week of May, seven of these trade representatives (covering 16 countries) will be visiting five Wisconsin communities—Madison, Milwaukee, Menomonie, Appleton and Whitewater—for one-on-one meetings to help companies identify the best markets to target with their products and services.
At these meetings, companies will have the opportunity to get basic information about the markets covered (Canada, Brazil, China, South Korea, the Middle East, Benelux, France, Germany and the UK) and to discuss whether a given market might be a good fit for their product or service. Companies that take part in the meetings, which are free of charge, will also have the opportunity to sign up for WEDC’s market assessment and international partner search services, which provide more in-depth information to help companies decide whether entering a given market is right for them, and with whom they should partner in the market. In each location, in addition to one-on-one meetings, the representatives will give a general presentation on exporting and international market conditions. Some of the presentations have a fee to attend, but there is no change for the one-on-one meetings.
Networking reception hosted by Madison International Trade Association to follow from 4:30-7pm at the Heritage Tavern, 131 E. Mifflin Street, Madison. Learn more and register.
