Help Grow Kansas Exports!

Learn how to join the global market place and expand Kansas exports when you attend the East Central or Southeast Regional Export Promotion meetings.

East Central Region:  Wednesday, Dec. 10, Ball Conference Center
(21350 W. 153rd St., Olathe)

 *Southeast Region:    Thursday, Dec. 11, Windsor Place Event Center
(102 W. 8th St., Coffeyville)*

The meetings, which will be held from 9:00 am to 11:30 am, are two of six export promotion meetings offered by Kansas Global Trade Services in partnership with the Kansas Department of Commerce.

The six meetings are part of the ExportNow Kansas Program aimed at local companies with export potential.  The program will raise export awareness by connecting communities and companies to export assistance.

Why are these meetings important?  Kansas has enjoyed some export success in the past few years, increasing exports by 26 percent between 2010 and 2013.  But experts say that 83 percent of global GDP growth will occur outside the U.S. by 2018, and Kansas needs to claim a greater share. 

Who would benefit from these meetings?

  • Businesses who produce goods and services suitable for export
  • Local elected and appointed officials
  • Economic development officials

We hope you will consider joining us for this great opportunity.  There is no charge for this event, but RSVPs are required.  E-mail Ella at or call 316-264-5982.

We look forward to seeing you!
