Posted on Jul 18, 2014 in News

Hawaii Pacific Export Council SeminarOverwhelming response to join the Hawaii Pavilion is due in large part to the impressive sales Hawaii participants reported in 2012 and 2013. The Tokyo International Gift Show (TIGS) is one of DBEDT’s efforts to help Hawaii companies broaden their market reach in Japan.  While registration for this year is closed, sign up on our events mailing list to learn about more upcoming trade shows and missions.

To prepare for TIGS, DBEDT and the Hawaii Pacific Export Council held an export readiness seminar on Thursday, July 10th.  Participants included companies heading to the Tokyo gift show and as well as other companies interested in learning the mechanics of exporting to Japan and Asia.
