Below, you are invited to read what some of the 2017 Outstanding Exporters had to say about the 2017 National Small Business Exporters Summit:

“One full day packed with great insight and awesome networking. It was a great experience to be a speaker and especially to be part of the audience and learn so much in such a short time! This format is certainly a great alternative to formal seminars. THANK YOU!” – Richard Cuebas, Principal, Integra Design (Puerto Rico) – http://integrapr.com/

“It was refreshing to share best practices and experiences with other exporters ……. No matter your level of expertise, the Summit provides practical tips and insights to fine-tune your export plans. I truly enjoyed the networking and comradery shared with others with a like passion for international business.” – Zachary Barry, International Sales, Aladdin Light Lift, Inc. (Alabama) – https://www.aladdinlightlift.com/

I really didn’t know what to expect when I was invited to share our journey with others as the 2017 Exporter’s Summit in Spokane. I’m glad I took the opportunity to prepare and present. The insights I gained from the decisions others had made — and why they made them, proved beneficial. I returned to work with added confidence that we are on the right track and asking the right questions. This can happen! – Rob Allen, Owner, RangeMaster Shoulder Therapy (Washington) – http://www.myrangemaster.com/

“Often it’s hard to leave home and attend so many exciting sounding events around the country. I was really glad that I made the effort to attend the NASBITE Summit in Spokane. I learned a lot, made some new friends and with the e-mails I’m already receiving, feel my name is now “on the list” for news, updates and general information about exporting.” – Rita Jo Shoultz, Owner, Alaska Perfect Peony – www.alaskaperfectpeony.com
