NASBITE International will host the fifth annual National Small Business Exporter Summit on February 24 and March 3, 2021, with session offered from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. on each of those dates. This year’s event will be offered virtually, providing participants the opportunity to connect online and the convenience to join sessions live or view the recorded content post-event.  As with past years, the 2021 Exporter Summit will bring together top small and medium-sized exporters from across the United States, providing all with an opportunity to exchange and share best practices and lessons learned that have contributed to their export success. This forum serves as a premiere event for companies and trade assistance providers focused on export growth.

Outstanding Exporter Honorees

Open nominations for outstanding small and medium-sized exporters have been sought from export trainers, Certified Global Business Professionals (CGBPs), export assistance providers, District Export Councils and event partners across the country. Companies that have accepted nominations will be recognized as a 2021 Outstanding Exporter Invitee, and will be among those in the running for “2021 National Small Business Exporter Summit – Outstanding Exporter Honoree” recognition. Announcement of the 2021 Outstanding Exporter Honoree companies will be made during the Exporter Summit proceedings on February 24, 2020.  Many of those honorees have been selected to share their export story and highlight “best practice” tips, processes and strategies and/or lessons learned. These sessions form the foundation of the National Small Business Exporters Summit.

Who Should Attend

The National Small Business Exporter Summit provides forward-thinking CEOs and upper-level management, export executives and entrepreneurs with direct access to shared-learning and high-level networking and opportunities. Attendees will gain insight on powerful tools, techniques and resources that outstanding exporters from across the country have used to guide export growth and success within their businesses. Information will be shared that Summit attendees can adapt/adopt within their own business settings to support business growth and development.

The Exporter Summit also presents the same networking and shared learning opportunities for international trade assistance providers, prospective exporters and educators

There’s value in attending both the Exporter Summit AND the NASBITE International Annual Conference!

“The Exporter’s conference was a pleasant surprise since the speakers were a bunch of private companies, all exporters who each gave a talk on what works and what doesn’t, which markets have specific issues and most importantly, showed the value of what it means to sell overseas. Great addition to NASBITE! I got lots of great info and leads from attending.” – Brent Rondon, Manager, Global Business Program, Duquesne University SBDC

“Spending time at the Exporters Summit sharing ideas with some of America’s best and brightest small business exporters was a great learning opportunity. I liked the event’s fast-paced format, including networking opportunities that contributed to my overall NASBITE experience. I highly recommend adding the National Small Business Exporters Summit to your NASBITE Conference itinerary.” – Owen George, International Business Development Counselor, North Carolina SBTDC
