SEMINAR - The Distribution Experience: Working with Agents & Brokers to Expand Your Business Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Do you have a desire to sell your products to the US? Joining the hundreds of thousands of merchants who sell to one of the biggest markets in the world. But how?

Have you ever wondered what the best way is to get your product to market?  Should you set up a storefront in the new market? That can be expensive. Can you get full access to your market through e-commerce? So, what are my other options?

One of the easiest ways to get your product to market is to work with an agent or a broker as they will look after the marketing and promotion of your product and you still maintain the control you want and confidence in knowing that your agent/broker is working for you. Additionally, they already have an established network and contact base, so they hit the ground running. Best practice is to develop a solid relationship with your agent/broker and work together so you are both successful.

Join us on April 24, 2019 for a lunch and learn at the Saskatoon Inn where STEP will have representation from both the agent and broker side. Charles Cohon, President of the Manufacturers Agents National Association (MANA), will go through the process of working with an agent, how to navigate through the numerous agents out there and how best to work with them. We will also hear from a fellow STEP member about real experiences working with agents. Afterwards we will hear from Frank Gallucci, President of Newage Marketing in the food industry who will talk about the benefits and expectations when using a broker to expand your business.

If you are thinking about expanding your business, you will want to hear what these speakers have to say.
