OIBD remains committed to connecting Pennsylvania companies with people and resources that can help them increase their international sales.
Due to COVID, OIBD has chosen again to host a virtual edition of Bringing the World to PA this year so they can continue creating and building global business connections.
Bringing the World to PA 2021 will run from September 13 – 24 and will include a series of online presentations and panels on a range of international business and trade topics. Live presentations by Pennsylvania’s authorized trade representatives will highlight business opportunities for Pennsylvania exporters in key global markets. Partners and service providers from across the state and around the world will also be featured.
Pennsylvania-based companies interested in exploring new international markets for their products and services are invited to participate in as many sessions as they chose – all at no cost.
