Los Angeles Partner David Stepp will present June 1 at the Northern California World Trade Center 20th Annual International Business Luncheon in Sacramento, Calif. The program provides an opportunity for business leaders and diplomatic representatives to discuss the state of global trade, explore the region’s international connections and discover new business opportunities.
The forum also provides the opportunity to network with consuls general and other trade officials from more than 20 countries around the world and offers guidance on entering and sustaining business in Asia’s market.
Stepp will co-present on the International Business Panel, which will cover the effects of technology-enabled trade on global business practices and the expansion of access to global markets for small to medium businesses.
“The intersection of the digital economy and international trade has revolutionized global business practices and opened access to global markets for companies of all sizes,” Stepp noted.
