“There is significant growth potential for companies who can identify these markets, and take advantage of a less competitive environment,” says Dennis McLaughlin, chair of international services at Clark Schaefer Hackett and SODEC member.

That is the reasoning behind the Seventh Annual International Trade Conference, “Hot Market Watch: Selling to India, Indonesia, Russia and South Korea.” The full-day agenda has been developed for companies seeking to understand the challenges and opportunities offered in those nations. Seminars will showcase strategies for successful trade. Trade experts from the government and international companies will present. 

Keynote speakers include

  • David Gossack, Senior Commercial Officer with the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia
  • John McCaslin, Minister Counselor for Commercial Affairs with the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, Russia
  • Judy Reinke, Minister Counselor for Commercial Affairs with the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi, India
  • Jim Sullivan, Senior Commercial Officer with the U.S. Embassy  in Seoul, South Korea

The corporate luncheon panel will be moderated by Ann Thompson, WVXU – Cincinnati Public Radio reporter and mid-day host. International organizations and companies will present real world export experiences in the four hot markets.

Presenters will discuss implications including legal, taxation, cultural, environmental, logistics, foreign exchange and patents.

This seminar is the region’s largest international trade event of its kind, traditionally drawing attendees from across the nation and the globe.

Conference Platinum sponsors: Clark Schaefer Hackett, Xavier University’s Williams College of Business, DHL, and PNC.
