American Express logoInterested in finding new strategies to grow your business, receiving mentorship from industry experts and being inspired by other entrepreneurs who face similar challenges?

You’re invited to join hundreds of fellow business owners along with global trade experts, large prime contractors, the International Trade Administration (ITA) and other government resources at the American Express Summit for Success on June 26, in Washington, D.C.

The Summit for Success is a free full-day event packed with interactive learning and development workshops to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) do more business and reach new customers.  Attendees will discover opportunities for growth through international sales, government contracting, and corporate procurement, and learn the roadmap for successfully implementing each during targeted sessions.

A series of breakout sessions on exporting will cover topics like powering global business growth through your existing investment in digital marketing, finding government resources to help you grow globally, managing the risks and uncertainties of global payments and logistics, and using ITA programs that will introduce you to local buyers in overseas markets.

In addition to networking opportunities, attendees can sign up to join onsite roundtable mentoring sessions with experts in a range of exporting-related disciplines.

The Summit for Success aims to help all businesses in attendance – from those who are just beginning to consider exporting to those who have some experience and up to those with robust global sales success –with new ideas for growth through exporting.

ITA and American Express launched their Strategic Partnership in 2015, and have collaborated on a series of activities to increase trade education and awareness of export opportunities for U.S. businesses.  The joint effort has focused on SMEs (those generating up to $1 billion in revenues annually), and has brought programming to Chicago, Atlanta, Miami, Baltimore, and Long Beach, as well as the 2017 Summit for Success in Washington, D.C.
