On-Demand Webinar: Exporting to the U.S--Key Strategies for Canadian Export Readiness

View this on-demand webinar and discover how Canadian manufacturers, who are considering exporting to the U.S., can devise a successful strategy to become export-ready.

Canada is the United States’ largest trade partner, and the economic climate between the two countries is robust and expanding. It therefore seems like a natural fit for Canadian manufacturers to look to the U.S. for expanding their revenue growth—beyond Canadian borders. With a surging American economy and weak Canadian dollar; declining oil prices; geographic proximity and accessibility; and culture and language familiarity, opportunities to export to the U.S. are limitless—provided Canadian manufacturers can develop and execute a sound expansion strategy.

This 45-minute on-demand webinar, designed exclusively for Canadian manufacturing leaders, explores key strategies to help Canadian manufacturers become export-ready, to avoid risk and equal financial reward. In this session, you will discover:

  •       A deep-dive into the market opportunity for exporting to the U.S.
  •       Strategies for export success and common pitfalls to avoid
  •       A roadmap for success when selecting the ‘right’ target market
  •       Considerations for leveraging technology, such as ERP, to help become export-ready
