Sonoma County Board of Supervisors Chair, David Rabbitt; who will address seminar attendees, said, “Exports are a key economic opportunity for the North Bay region as we continue down the path to recovery. Companies that develop new markets overseas could be well-positioned to expand their operations and create jobs.”

North Bay companies must have the needed tools to expand their sales globally. Through this event, the Sonoma County Economic Development Board (EDB) will provide practical training designed by the U.S. Commercial Service and Department of Commerce.

The Seminar will clearly explain the requirements to expand sales into foreign markets through the “Export University” format, the leading provider in the United States of export training and education. The curriculum will include Export Logistics, Trade Financing, Global Marketing, and U.S. Government export resources.

Such training is vital for companies looking to leverage economic recovery by expanding their markets to the growing Asian, African and South American markets, among others.

Advanced registration is $45 and closes May 6th. More information is available on the EDB’s website at: SonomaEDB.org.
