Explore Exporting Seminar, Sept. 19, Tempe
The Arizona Department of Agriculture and the Western United States Agricultural Trade Association (WUSATA) will hold an Explore Exporting Seminar Sept. 19 in Tempe, Ariz.
The seminar, designed exclusively for food and agricultural-based businesses, will provide companies the opportunity to start up or expand sales by tapping into the 95.5 percent of consumers who live outside of the U.S.
The seminar will highlight the benefits of exporting and will provide access to key resources.
John Wiley Spiers, author of How Small Business Trades Worldwide, will discuss how to find customers, qualifications, and make an export sale as safe and easy as domestic business.
Spiers is an adjunct lecturer who has been trading worldwide since 1974.
Participants also will learn about resources and services available from local financial, shipping logistics, and state sectors.
Participants will also learn how to receive 50 percent cost reimbursement on export market development expenses through the WUSATA’s branded program.
“It is essential that Arizona companies learn about their export market potential opportunities,” says Andy Anderson, Executive Director for WUSATA.
“Agricultural exports are a bright spot in the economy and are full of opportunity. Global economies and disposable incomes are steadily rising and the need for safe, quality U.S. food has never been greater.”
The seminar will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
