DEGC’s Business Development team is focused on engaging foreign companies and helping local companies export goods and services more aggressively and strategically overseas. We’re happy to invite you to an event designed to do just that in the China market.
Alibaba’s Gateway ’17 event at Cobo Center will be held June 20-21. Attendees will hear from the company’s founder, Jack Ma, about how Alibaba’s platform has been used to achieve sales success in China.
- Hear U.S.-based small business owners’ success stories as they share how they successfully exported to China using Alibaba’s platform.
- Hear how Alibaba helps businesses sell directly to consumers, build their brand, find distributors, and conduct cross-border e-commerce through their web-based sales, logistics and digital marketing solutions.
- Find partners for marketing, payments, and logistics in Alibaba’s ecosystem, and understand China’s retail and e-commerce landscape, and the buying patterns of China’s consumers.
In Detroit, we are broadening our base of small businesses among many industries. As such, DEGC encourages small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs to attend. We welcome farmers, brand managers, manufacturers, food producers, high-tech companies, and anyone who is exporting or hopes to export goods to China. Alibaba will share specific solutions for business in the following industries: Fashion and Apparel, Everyday Goods, Fresh Foods, and Agricultural Products.
Alibaba’s Gateway ’17 is one of several foreign development investment and export-related forums that DEGC Business Development will participate in or co-convene this year. We hope you can join us.
