Who should attend? Companies that want to grow their businesses through exporting. The program is designed to offer current exporters the opportunity to exchange best practices and discuss strategies for overcoming problems that cost them time and money, whether it be identifying the right mix of products based on vehicles on the road in the targeted market; the most cost-effective and expedient way to getting your products to overseas customers; getting paid; and protecting your trademarks, patents and copyrights. The program is also designed for those new to exporting who would like to learn how to get started in growing their customer base to reach some of the estimated 90% of buyers located outside the United States.

Registration for the 2019 SEMA Export Fair is limited. The cost is $125 for the first participant per company and $65 for each additional participant from the same company.
