Category: FaB Events

 

Upgrade your membership to receive your company seat and attend. Learn more.

At this meeting of FaB's Leadership Council meeting, member leaders will take a look into Wisconsin’s international trade, relationships, and resources. We say that FaB Wisconsin is where we feed and quench the world. With three featured guests, the Council will learn how we stack up on Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) trade and exports. Hear from fellow Council leaders finding it good for business to export their products and from those growing their international presence in Wisconsin.

To quote a FaB Board member, “To feed and quench the world, we need to be talking with the world.” Talking with, doing business with, forming partnerships, sharing resources – we want to raise awareness of Wisconsin’s international industry ties, stories, and successes. We want to elevate our capacity to connect international needs, opportunities, and resources with our members.

On May 24, we're placing a spotlight on Wisconsin’s international status and market opportunities.
