Go Global: Where experts and exporters meet

Go Global: Where experts and exporters meet

New Zealand needs more exporters. It's time to think bigger. And if your business wants to get in on the action, then tap into the expertise converging in Auckland shortly for this year’s Go Global conference.

Go Global will bring together exporters from around the country and the world at the Sky City Convention Centre on March 22.

This year's conference is built around three themes: route to market and distribution; R&D and IP; and marketing and market research.

Go Global aims to answer some of the big questions exporters grapple with – such as how to research a market, how to promote their goods or services there, and how to use intellectual property and research and development to best effect.

As well as in-market Beachhead Advisory Board experts from North America and India, tips for success will also be shared from Kiwi exporters making good around the world: Simon McDonald, CEO of Triodent; Michael Stedman, CEO of Natural History New Zealand; and Neil Cowie, CEO of Pumpkin Patch.
