The seminar will provide a forum for manufacturers and service companies to advance their understanding of the issues around: (1) setting up a European business; (2) finding a trustworthy European business partner; and, (3) effective ways to establish and maintain relationships within Europe.

 The program will incorporate interactive panels and individual segments, with presenters who represent European national and regional economic development agencies who assist, without charge, U.S. companies wanting to establish a European footprint or find a European partner. It will also provide an excellent networking and knowledge-sharing opportunity for business decision-makers who are involved in international trade with Europe.
