The Utah Global forum will help businesses export successfully, adapt to today’s global marketplace and succeed in untapped markets.
There are more than 7 billion potential customers in the world, and 2.4 billion of them are online. How many of those customers are yours? How many could you reach today?
The opportunity for any business to expand into the global marketplace has never been easier.
E-commerce has redefined business borders and business owners are no longer confined to city, state or country. Today, expanding your sales abroad enhances your bottom-line.
The Utah Global Forum will facilitate the dialogue on how businesses can expand beyond local boundaries and develop an import and export strategy to expand into the global marketplace. The program offers an incredible breadth of content, bringing experts from across multiple industries, all with a single objective: move Utah businesses to the global business stage and meet the challenges of today’s business environment.
The Utah Global Forum will also specially focus on Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Utah. FDI represents an opportunity to become more actively involved in international business activities for businesses of all sizes. FDI takes many forms, such as a direct acquisition, construction of facilities, investment in a joint venture, or strategic alliance with a local firm with technology or licensing of intellectual property.
