Minnesota District Export Council & the U.S. Commercial Service organize an International Trade Networking Cocktail (ITNC) co-hosted by MIC. This event was created in order to allow international business people and those with an interest in international trade to meet and connect locally.
Feb 9: Do you know how to differentiate between a trade barrier, foreign regulation and a customer requirement? Do you suspect that you have been subject to a trade barrier but were unable to act because you might lose an export sale? Well, you can find help right in your own back yard.

Meet an expert on technical barriers within the Trade Compliance Center (TCC) at the MN District Export Council reception. His name is Bryan O’Byrne and he has initiated compliance actions leading to the resolutions of dozens of international regulatory and technical trade barriers. TCC is the gateway to the US Department of Commerce’s Trade Agreement Compliance program. Get to know him!

It will be held on February 9, 2010 between 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Radisson Plaza Hotel, 35 S. 7th Street, Minneapolis.

For only $20 you’ll be able to hear and speak with Mr. O’Byrne at this event sponsored by the MN District Export Council as well as dozens of other members of Minnesota’s growing trade community.

Enjoy the complimentary food and cash bar. Network with your fellow international traders!
