ABOUT EXPORT SMART
The idea of the event is to consolidate existing business relationships and nurture new ones in most of exporting sectors through the creation of a platform that showcases the diverse export related services. Export Smart is created as a yearly event to guide and connect exporters and service providers who would put their business growth on a fast-track.
The event’s VISION is to be the 1st annual event in the Middle East that contributes to a sustainable growth for SMEs’ exports from different sectors.
The event’s MISSION is to support the enhancement of the trade enabling environment in Egypt and facilitate access to markets by connecting Exporters and Exporters-To-Be to export service providers, government institutions and development agencies. We aspire to achieve this while growing the number of exporters as well as export service providers in the Egyptian market.
Go Global thought about this initiative, creating an event to be -one stop shop- where we bring service providers in one place in a trade show and connect them with the exporters. Also, invite different government and international organizations to facilitate the event and give everyone guidance through sessions and workshops.
A special space will be created, where each exhibitor will have a table to promote their services and communicate with different event delegates. Companies, also invited government and international organizations would have an opportunity to meet exhibitors to understand their services better.
A space for networking between all delegates of the event, and also invited government and international organizations so that they would have an opportunity to meet with all stakeholders and get the needed exposure for them to expand their business platform.
Specially designed conference with speakers/ panelists carefully chosen to address the different opportunities/ challenges that face the SMEs and the different sectors topics of interest. The theme of the conference will change every year to match the needs of the business growth and potential exposure for the SMEs.
Trade Reform and Development in Egypt (TRADE) Activity is a five-year project (2021-2026) funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) that aims to increase Egypt’s international trade by boosting exports from small and medium enterprises (SMEs) by $225 million over the next five years. To achieve its objectives USAID TRADE partners with private sector stakeholders as well government agencies, including the Ministry of Trade and Industry and the National Food Safety Authority, to increase Egyptian exports in six sectors: engineering products, food processing, home textiles, ready-made garments, chemicals, and building materials. The project also helps to reduce trade and investment barriers and strengthens the trade support institutions, such as trade associations and Export Councils, that will enhance the export capacity of SMEs. The USAID TRADE – GoGlobal partnership contributes to the project’s sustainability efforts as GoGlobal aims to position itself as a major player and ongoing force connecting SME exporters with service providers.
Go Global is an international business development firm that has been helping Egyptian exporters and exporters-to-be to grow and expand internationally. Since 2013, Go Global has been the trusted partner for Development agencies and Trade Support institutions in their export development programs. During our journey we have served hundreds of SMEs from different sectors through our array of services. Now Go Global became the Go-To advisor for the companies, offering referrals and linkages to different service providers to help them achieve their export growth. This is where the idea of EXPORT SMART came from.
