You Can Export - Managing Agents and Distributors- Half day workshop
Managing your export development can be effective and efficient when you’re working with the right partner. By establishing a valuable network overseas, you’ll have access to local contacts who have experience and understanding of the market. This is a good way to keep your international business growing and running smoothly.
In this workshop Simon Bedford and the Department for International Trade (DIT), will look at routes to markets, establishing overseas contacts and explore the benefits of using agents and distributors. This workshop will provide both new and experienced exporters with the practical knowledge for sourcing contacts internationally, as well as negotiating terms and managing a relationship with newly formed agents or distributors. The session will also cover the practical issues of monitoring, motivating, and evaluating their performance, and the importance of supporting your partner to ensure the best results.
This event is only open to registered businesses based in North East England interested in trading internationally or wanting to learn more about the service Department for International Trade North East (formerly UKTI North East) provides. You may be contacted prior to the event to assess eligibility.
