What Is ExporTech?
ExporTech is a nationally recognized program proven to help small and mid-sized companies boost their sales revenues via exports. in Arizona, the program is delivered by the Arizona Commerce Authority (ACA) RevAZ Manufacturing Extension Partnership program, along with national partners. The Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG), which includes all of Maricopa County and parts of Pinal County, is cosponsoring this March 2017 June 2017 program – the 8th ExporTech program in Arizona, and the first regional program. Representatives from up to 8 MAG region companies will attend 3 full-day sessions where they are exposed to Arizona export experts from diverse subject matter sectors, undergo practical training on key export topics, and receive individualized export coaching.
