LOCAL TRADE EVENTS
The U.S. Commercial Service in Portland, along with our local international trade partners, conducts on-going conferences, seminars, and events to educate our clients and promote international trade. Whether it's an executive briefing with a Commercial Service Officer from Australia or a videoconference with your distributor in Zurich, these events are designed to help U.S. exporters market locally and sell globally.
Important Note: You may be eligible to receive financial assistance for export training seminars through the Oregon Trade Promotion Program Grants
This day-long seminar provides information and resources needed to help established businesses develop an export market, supplies occasional exporters with tools to begin/expand international business, and offers current exporters a forum for discussing special issues in export business development.
This class is offered approximately four times annually in various locations, including Portland, Salem, Eugene and Bend. No classes are scheduled over the summer months, but resume in September.
