Two-day Export Plan Workshops ($300 + GST)

(prior attendance at one-day session required)

In this two-day, hands-on workshop you will complete an export plan, undertake a phone hook-up with USA trade experts and enjoy a Chinese dining experience, where you will gain valuable insights into Chinese business practices. In finalising your export plan, you will refine your market intent and wine offer, review key market analysis, assess your resourcing needs, evaluate and prepare for sales channels, plan your partner activation, review free-on-board (FOB) costs, complete a sales plan and estimate net revenue.
