Theme across breakouts: Distributor negotiation, appointment and management

Appointing a well-connected distributor with local experience and a good understanding of the market can be a low cost, quick entry into an overseas territory. An effective distributor can also make a considerable difference to the growth and profit of your export business.

The challenge is in finding the right partner, negotiating terms, maintaining the distributors focus on your products, and managing business continuity in the face of change and other eventualities that can arise from afar.

Our panelists will share their experience addressing these challenges and how to effectively build bridges between different cultures.
