Tampa Bay area exporters looking to grow their businesses may find helpful information at the International Trade Networking event on Dec. 7 in Tampa.
The networking event is being put on by the Florida District Export Council (FDEC) along with the U.S. Commercial Service. Organizers of the event aim to increase trade in the region by connecting exporters with each other.
“The goal of the event is for companies to connect with each other and hopefully do business, thus expanding international trade in Tampa Bay,” says George Martinez of GlobalRepfind, LLC, organizer of the event. “Attendees can introduce their company, products and/or services and meet potential customers or links to customers overseas.”
In addition to connecting exporters, several FDEC
members will be present to answer trade questions. The FDEC, which is made up of businessmen and women who have been appointed by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce, often advise local exporters. This networking event will allow attendees the opportunity to gain insight on trade and seek answers from FDEC mentors.
“This event will give attendees ways to grow their business by exporting or importing,” says Martinez.
The International Trade Networking Reception will Wednesday, Dec. 7, at the Wyndham Tampa Westshore Hotel, 700 North Westshore Blvd. in Tampa. The cost to attend is $15 per person. Those interested in attending can register through the FDEC website
and pay online, or by check at the event. The deadline for registration is Friday, Dec. 2.
