DENVER (PRWEB) February 23, 2018
Anthony Robinson, of counsel at global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, presented at the Fifth Annual Expofitness International Sports and Wellness Business Expo held February 16-18, in Medellín, Colombia. Expofitness is positioned as the premiere Latin American event in the sports and wellness industries, drawing fitness brands and industry professionals from around the world. Robinson spoke in a session titled, “The Republic of Panama: Opening the Door to Latin America through E-Commerce.”
Focusing on consumer packaged goods in the health and wellness sector, Robinson discussed how companies can use e-commerce to test international markets, gather valuable marketing data, and use this data to gain leverage when seeking traditional methods of international distribution. “Rather than starting with a traditional distributor in each new market,” advised Robinson, “e-commerce opens international markets with less risk to brand equity and provides companies the time to find a distribution partner that is the right fit for their business ethic and marketing strategy.” Robinson added: “Fulfillment through the Free Trade Zone in Panama offers tax benefits that enable companies to price more competitively and improve fulfillment times to other Latin American countries.”
Robinson, a dual citizen of the Republic of Panama and the USA, advises companies, including direct sales companies employing multi-level marketing strategies, in the conventional food, dietary supplement, and cosmetic industries regarding regulatory, corporate, and intellectual property matters. With a focus on international trade, he counsels clients on the regulatory requirements and strategic corporate considerations that affect the importation, exportation, and distribution of consumer packaged goods, including expansion into Latin America through the Republic of Panama. Robinson has wide-ranging experience supporting companies doing business in Central and South America.
