With 95 percent of potential customers living outside the United States, exporting goods and services makes great sense and can add significantly to a firm’s bottom line.
The Pierce County Economic Development Department and the World Trade Center Tacoma are teaming up to host an Export Forum this month to help businesses succeed.
Washington State Commerce Director Brian Bonlender will be the keynote speaker at this annual event. Participants will learn about exporting from private companies and federal, state and local experts.
The event is free, so join other business leaders for networking and meeting with professionals at hosted display tables.
