Asia Pacific Business Outlook Conference Profiles Asian MarketsMarch 22, 2012

Next Monday and Tuesday, March 26-27. I’ll be in Los Angeles at the 25th annual Asia Pacific Business Outlook. The event features representatives of 200 companies from many sectors ranging from manufacturing to consumer products and banking in attendance. I’m excited to join some 400 other people as we listen to Senior Commercial Officers and numerous experts on the Asia Pacific region. The networking event includes 60 focused sessions and private one-on-one consultations. Since 1987, APBO has been the premier business conference focused on trade and investment in Asian markets.
At the conference, businesses will meet face-to face with Commercial Service trade professionals who have traveled from across Asia to convene in Los Angeles, to learn the latest on market opportunities, strategies, and tips to export successfully. It’s an opportunity to expand your exports in the region. Among all U.S. exporters, 58 percent sell only to one market. So, for example, if you’re only selling to Vietnam, why not expand to China, Malaysia, or Indonesia? What are the latest and hottest markets and industry sectors in the region?
Stay tuned, as we will be posting numerous blogs from Senior Commercial Officers and seminar participants about the conference early next week. Be on the lookout for blogs on China tomorrow, India on Monday, the Philippines on Tuesday, and on sustainability and why a center for international trade development attends APBO on Wednesday.
Stay tuned and happy reading!
