Preparing for International Travel and Tradeshows
Growing International Business Opportunities
Tradeshows are crucial to expanding your sales outside B.C.’s borders. But the culture, etiquette and expectations of doing business in each country are different. So how do you prepare?
Join us for this free interactive seminar and learn the dos and don’ts of international business, how to get the most of out of your trip, and learn about the cultural elements that impact business decision-making. We’ll also cover upcoming B.C. and Canadian pavilions at trade shows around the world, and funding to take you there!
In light of the current COVID-19 effects on travel and tradeshows around the world, we will also provide information on how to deal with cancelled tradeshows, the force majeure clauses in contracts, government funding and other relevant topics.
Hear insights from Allison Boulton, Program Manager Export Navigator, as well as a guest speaker from Export Development Canada
