You are invited to participate in our first-time “Graduates of ExporTech” program, and to celebrate 15 years of the ExporTech program.  We want to know where are you now with your international sales since you completed the program, and, what you need NOW to help you grow in global markets.  We chose a few topics that may be of interest as you expand and continue to grow.

“Graduates of ExporTech Programwill take place just before the Maryland Export Day Program starting at 2:30pm in a room next door.  For those who participate in the “Graduates of ExporTech” event, there will not be a charge to then participate in Maryland Export Day program.  That agenda is shaping up to be quite the event.
