Port of Origin: Exporting From Maine and New England
This workshop session is going to parse out the good—bad—and avoidable pitfalls of exporting from Maine and northern New England. Due to the expansion of a digital economy and infrastructure improvements, businesses are competing at higher levels and moving faster by scale than ever before. As private-public partnerships like the Maine International Trade Center emerge, more Mainers are getting the chance to develop, promote and sell their wares in other markets — whether they’re material goods or not. Even some of our state’s most remote companies still have options to move commodities that range from semi-perishable foods, children’s toys, or content and intellectual property.
This workshop session will be most insightful for people who see themselves as a manufacturer of any variety. There will be allotted time for the audience members to ask questions to the panel.
