Samuel Shapiro & Company, Inc., a 97-year old leader in regulatory compliance and global transportation, will be joining Maryland’s exporters to celebrate International Trade Week, hosted by the Maryland/DC District Export Council, on May 21, 2013, at the Maritime Institute in Linthicum, Maryland.
The Maryland/Washington D.C. District Export Council, Inc. (DEC) is an organization of leaders from local business communities whose knowledge of international business provides a source of professional advice for local firms. Working closely with Department of Commerce U.S. Export Assistance Centers (USEACs), DEC members volunteer their time to sponsor and participate in numerous trade promotion activities. Like the USEACs, they are especially focused on assisting small and medium-sized exporters.
The day-long Celebration of International Trade conference, sponsored by the DEC as well as corporate and government agencies, features two dozen 90-minute workshops on various topics including guidelines for exporting, risk mitigation, government resources, international finance and diversification. Representing Shapiro at the conference will be Regional Director of Sales, Robert Clawson. Clawson’s extensive knowledge of the export industry stems from over 15 years of experience serving the international freight community.
“I am excited to be representing Samuel Shapiro at the Maryland/DC Celebration of International Trade 2013,” says Clawson. “With over 300 exporters in attendance, I welcome the opportunity to pass along some of our knowledge and experience on the export side.”
