In an important conference happening today and tomorrow in Washington, D.C., world business, economic, and political leaders are gathering to discuss opportunities for exporting/importing and improving the economic stasis of the country.
Among the esteemed speakers will be former President of the U.S., Bill Clinton, as well as the Mayor of the city of Chicago, Rahm Emanual, and the President of CBS News, David Rhodes. Joining them will be Bobby Patton (News - Alert), CEO of Patton Electronics in educational panel sessions.
The Export-Import Bank of the United States’ 2012 Annual Conference enables companies from around the world to meet U.S. exporters of all sizes and across all verticals and industries.
With a focus on a featured “speed networking” session, the conference will bring foreign buyers together with U.S.-based sellers to facilitate business deals.
Bobby Patton let me in on a bit about what he is hoping the conference will focus on, and on his opportunity to speak. His panel will create a dialogue around the potential “transformational” growth and impact that exports can have on U.S. businesses.
Patton said, “The benefits of exporting typically need to be earned through transformation of business processes that enable unique selling propositions and competitive advantage. Our invitation to participate in this event recognizes Patton’s unique advantages. Our VoIP products are globally relevant. This has only happened by getting close to our customers. We have gone to our customers and listened to them – many of those interactions face-to-face – and responded.”
With the hope that listeners will leave the panel with an understanding of the “potential transformative impact that exporting can have on a small businesses bottom line,” Patton will bring important points to the table regarding the part VoIP solutions plays in the potential for increasing exports.
With representatives from Latin America, India, and Africa, the conference will no doubt be the perfect forum for potential exporting initiatives to take place.
