Summit Helps Local Businesses Navigate Global E-Commerce

World Trade Month is celebrated worldwide each May, and the South Central Coast is on the map with international trade organizations from across the region joining forces to help the local business community understand and enter the global e-commerce market.
Local business leaders, consultants, entrepreneurs, and educators eager to learn about the latest global e-commerce trends, statistics, best practices, and strategies are invited to attend the Global E-Commerce Summit, 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Friday, May 11, at the Buellton Marriott Hotel, 555 McMurray Road.
The summit is hosted by the SBCC Scheinfeld Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, in partnership with the California State Chancellor’s Office Strong Workforce Program, Department of Commerce, District Export Council, Small Business Development Center, California Centers for International Trade Development, and local chambers of commerce.
Attendees will hear from industry experts who specialize in international trade development, strategies, logistics, customs, and compliance. Participants will learn how to assess their global e-commerce readiness to navigate the journey from domestic to exported product.

There will also be an opportunity meet the experts and ask questions related to specific businesses.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
