Thanks for checking out our Cross Border Summit details! Our next summit will be during April 2017 in Shenzhen, China:
What is the Cross Border Summit?
As the world goes global, we still have old fashioned borders. It is necessary to pay attention to these borders and understand how to best optimize your business. International business is one of the most complicated things a business owner can do, and having a good resource of information and fellow business owners is invaluable.
Cross Border Summit is here to help you do just that:
Who Should Attend the Cross Border Summit?
So who is this event for? We aim to help small to medium sized business owners doing e-commerce, import and export, and other fields that require them to deal with multiple countries, currencies, cultures, and complexities.
If you are buying and selling from a company outside of your home country, and it is an important part of what your business does, then you should be attending the Cross Border Summit.
As a business owner doing deals in other countries, sometimes it feels like a leap of faith. As you do it more and more you gain confidence, but still wonder if there are better tactics and strategies for your cross border business practices.
There are 2 main tracks of the event:
Track 1: Exporting from Asia
The classic “buying from a Chinese factory and selling in the West”. While its been around for decades, it is still a popular business practice that makes a lot of money for business owners. Learn the latest tactics and strategies from the export industry.
Track 2: Importing and Selling in China
a newer trend we have seen, more and more business owners want to tap into the fast growing Chinese economy. A much newer and more complex endeavor, we bring industry experts to share their tips and strategies for staying ahead.
As this cross border business industry is growing rapidly, it is changing just as quickly. Attend the summit to ensure you get the latest news, trends, and tools for give you the edge.
And many of our attendees enjoy meeting others “in their shoes” and knowing they aren’t alone in this hairy and many times overwhelming process of doing business between borders.
Why You Should Attend?
So think you fit the profile of an international business owner. Looking for more reasons to come? Well, let’s keep it short and to the point:
The organizers at Cross Border Summit work hard to find the right balance of learning and networking. You’ll have plenty of chances to hear amazing speeches, as well as fun and interactive sessions to find others in your industry.
When and Where?
The Cross Border Summit currently takes place each year in Shenzhen, China – right across from the Hong Kong border. We like to hold it in the month of April, as there are a lot of trade shows happening and people are already visiting Asia for their global business.
Many have requested it to be held more often and in more locations. Stay tuned for updates on that as the event grows and expands.
