Tokyo Exporting Study TourPosted on Apr 26, 2018 in News
Are you ready for exporting to Japan?
DBEDT is planning a study tour to Tokyo, September 3 – 7, 2018. The objectives are to prepare Hawaii companies that are new-to-export to enable them to exhibit at future Hawaii Pavilions and be able to book orders and close sales. By actually traveling to Tokyo, study tour participants will learn first-hand from advisors on the ground, as well as from other experienced Hawaii companies on how to succeed.
DATES: September 3 – 7, 2018
Please note: participants must cover their own costs for airfare, hotel, transportation, meals, and incidental expenses.
If you are interested in joining this Study Tour, please complete the registration form and we will be in contact shortly.
