    Event Description:


    “The USA represents a huge market that is very receptive to Canadian ideas and products, whether manufactured in Canada or imported into the USA from lower-cost international countries. With the reduction of trade barriers under NAFTA, combined with the availability of low-cost imported products and components, the opportunities for profit are substantial. However, unless a company has a $1+ million marketing budget, its management will need to learn and employ practical, cost effective methods and strategies.”


    • Why market to the USA? 
    • Overview of the U.S. Market.
