SBEA Partners with Ex-Im Bank on Eight-City Seminar Series

The Small Business Exporters Association, a Trade
Association Partner of the Export-Import Bank of the U.S. (Ex-Im Bank), is
helping promote a series of upcoming national seminars, “Exports Live!:
Real Deals, Real Profits,” focused on small and mid-sized exporters. Created
by six federal agencies, the half-day, interactive seminars are designed to
demonstrate how local businesses can successfully leverage government export
assistance to expand sales of U.S. goods and services in foreign markets and
increase their bottom lines.

Participants will learn about various products and services
available to help them successfully compete worldwide. Each seminar will
include a series of interactive panel discussions with federal government
partners as well as with exporters highlighting their success stories. After
lunch, there will be an opportunity for one-on-one sessions with government
trade professionals and networking with trade finance lenders, export credit
insurance brokers, government and industry experts, and other successful U.S.
