The Discover Global Markets road-show made a stop in New York City on October 7th and 8th at the New York Athletic Club. The DGMs are a creation of the U.S. Department of Commerce and feature the participation of the District Export Councils from around the country.
At the conference, nearly 300 participants spent two days hearing from over 60 experts on the intricacies of selling in China and several other markets contiguous to China. Many of these experts included key staff members of the Commerce Department from the Far East who travelled to New York to address the attendees on the latest details on selling their products in China. The New Jersey-based International Trade Specialists played an integral role in organizing one-on-one appointments for attendees to receive individual counseling on doing business in the region.
Featured speakers at the conference on the first day included, Stefan Selig, Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade and Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney of New York. On the second day the featured speaker was Andy Bird, Chairman of Walt Disney International.
