How to scale up your business to enter foreign countries’ market

On March 19 Kyiv Fashion invites you to visit a great event on export promotion for your company “How to scale up your business to enter foreign countries’ market”.

The world is changing fast making each company owner react quickly and grow sales. Despite high production costs, bureaucratic and logistics hindrances which  exporters face, export forecasts are still promising. All you need is to develop some particular first steps in export directions. At our meeting everyone will have a chance not only to get instructions and recommendations on solving export issues from experts, but also to have an informal talk with speakers and ask their questions.

What we are going to discuss:

  • Promote your online shop or enter marketplaces?
  • What sum of money is enough to begin with?
  • Pitfalls on your way.
  • Work with customers from far abroad (USA, China) and Europe.

Needless to say that there will be much useful information and exchange of information during informal talks with speakers, organizers and participating companies, and we will also have a chance to discuss marketing questions, for instance, how BrandStory, Lookbook and Line sheet should look like, where to find buyers from EU and how to interest them in your brand.
