Do It In Durham is a series of events taking place in the Region of Durham from 14 - 18 November, 2016. This series is in celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week. In Durham we have over 30 events happening to celebrate, inspire and motivate entrepreneurship as well as to bring together our business community. Every event is an opportunity to network and grow your business and your knowledge. There is a rich eco-system of support, funding and entrepreneurial resources for businesses.
This seminar will provide resources as you create an export business plan and/or develop a marketing plan. International market research resources and Canadian export regulations will be discussed with those in attendance.
Market research is a process to learn about the target customer and the business environment into which you will sell. Marketing is the process of selling to that target customer. As you do the market research, you will begin to develop ideas about the best way to do the marketing.
