[Full details at http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/1518845/ ] SAO's Marketing + Sales + International SIGs presents "Strategies and Success Stories for Growing your Business Internationally”, a morning panel event at the Governor Hotel and “Best Practices and Networking” , an evening networking event at the Rogue. Those who attend both events may enter to win a free SAO program pass. Oregon exported over $16.5 billion in goods and services in 2007, accounting for 10.4% of total GDP. With those numbers certain to grow, it's time to consider how you can increase your global sales pipeline. Economic challenges, the weak dollar, and globalization make it imperative that companies consider the opportunity to accelerate growth by tapping into global markets. This event will introduce you to key strategies and success stories for increasing international revenue. This event is the first in a series of "Go Global" programs put on by the SAO in 2009 designed to educate firms on how to take their companies international. We've gathered three experts with experience in Asia, Europe and North America to share best practices and anecdotes for growing your sales pipeline across the globe. You'll come away from this event with specific techniques for expanding your sales pipeline.
