Join us for the 3rd Annual Illinois Chamber of Commerce’s Statewide Exports Conference

This conference will bring together policymakers, company CEOs, and key international players to examine the state of global trade and provide a practical overview of the trends and tools that will drive economic growth in an increasingly uncertain political and economic environment.

A panel of trade experts serving at the highest level of government and industry will help participating companies understand the impact that globalization and technology will have on their businesses and how to implement effective solutions to access capital, markets and networks via supply chain optimization and risk mitigation.

You will also hear directly from exporting company representatives who will share their best practices and success stories to illustrate how you can increase your global sales.

The conference will conclude with a panel of senior foreign government officials to serve as a reference source for how to use economic diplomacy to build global networks, generate demand, and leverage opportunity.
