RICHMOND - Is your company relatively new to exporting? Have you received requests from interested prospects abroad? If you answered yes to either question, Exporting 101: An Introduction to Export Readiness, is the course for you.

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership’s Division of International Trade sponsors the monthly seminar covering export readiness and the basics of exporting sales, marketing, shipping and payment. Industry professionals offer pointers on achieving international sales success, including topics such as trade events, market research, due diligence, export pricing and payment, and export shipping. The next seminar will be held in Abingdon Wednesday, June 7, 2006, at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center.

“We’re happy to provide Virginia companies with the knowledge and tools they need to succeed in exporting,” said Paul Grossman, Director of VEDP’s Division of International Trade. “Hopefully, companies in Southwest Virginia that are interested in exporting will take advantage of our Abingdon seminar.”

Darlene Flowers of Yupo Corporation America participated in the May seminar in Virginia Beach. “I enjoyed the seminar and came away with a lot of useful information,” said Flowers. “I will most certainly be in touch, now that I know who to contact, whenever questions arise.”
