Selling Oregon Products in Japan

July 8, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


In Japan there has been an explosion of interest in quality consumer products that are infused with craft, high design, and rooted in place–products that reflect what many perceive as the lifestyle and ideals of Portland and Oregon.

Join us on this Webinar to learn how to take advantage of this unique opportunity to grow your sales in one of the world’s largest and most sophisticated markets.

Hear from a panel that will share their knowledge of what the Japanese consumer is looking for, help you understand the market trends, provide the latest information on how to navigate the impact of COVID-19, and tell you about business resources to get you started.
