Tips on Maximizing International Opportunities at the 2014 SEMA Show

SEMA companies interested in expanding their sales overseas or wishing to gain a foothold in key international markets for the first time should start planning now to take advantage of one of the biggest international events of the year—the 2014 SEMA Show. During the first week of November, resellers from more than 130 countries interested in purchasing performance and styling products will be descending on Las Vegas for the SEMA Show. In fact, early figures show that 25% of all buyers expected to attend this year’s Show reside outside the United States, which is similar to the percentage at the 2013 Show.

What Are "Escrow Services" and How Can It Help My Business?

By definition, an escrow service reduces the potential risk of fraud by acting as a trusted third party that collects, holds and disburses funds according to exporter and importer instructions. Here's how it works: the importer sends the agreed amount to the escrow service.

 

In April 2012, Professor David Wyld, Robert Maurin Professor of Management at Southeastern Louisiana University, wrote an article titled "Securing the Transaction: The Advantages of Using Online Escrow Services Versus Letters of Credit in International Trade."
