Preparing for International Travel and Tradeshows

Growing International Business Opportunities

Course Description

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.

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

As an organization, our number one priority will always be the health and safety of our clients, staff and service providers. We also want to ensure we maintain the high service standards our clients expect. As such, we will be delivering all our services online, or over the phone, until further notice.
