ITRC Plans Intro to Exporting Seminar

Friday, March 18th, 2011

In cooperation with the Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce, the New Hampshire International Trade Resource Center (ITRC) will hold a seminar, “Introduction to Exporting,” on Tuesday, March 22 from 3-5pm at the Roundabout Diner, 580 US Highway RT 1 Bypass in Portsmouth.

export-classic“Since 95% of the world’s consumers live outside of the United States, developing an international business plan can be key to a company’s success,” New Hampshire International Trade Resource Center Director Dawn Wivell said. “Currently more than 2,200 New Hampshire companies export and the majority of them are small or medium-sized businesses. In 2010 alone, the Granite State exported $4.4 billion in goods and services, surpassing its previous all-time record. New Hampshire is number one among the states in rate of export growth, and we’re well above the national rate of 21.31%. That’s why this is an excellent time for businesses in New Hampshire to make exporting a part of their business plan.”

The seminar will cover researching international markets, developing an international business plan, international pricing, taxes and tariffs, logistics, financing and much more.

The event, which is sponsored by ITRC, the Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce, People’s United Bank and the U.S. Commercial Service, is free to Chamber members and $10 for non-members. For more information or to register, please email info@portsmouthchamber.org.

Administered by the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development’s Office of International Commerce, the ITRC plans, develops and administers programs for international trade promotion and foreign market development.  For more information about the ITRC, call (603) 271-8444, or visit their website at www.exportnh.org

High Tech Council Soliciting Applications for Software Awards

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

The New Hampshire High Tech Council, through the Software Industry Xchange (SwIX), is very pleased to announce a call for applications for its two award programs recognizing New Hampshire’s “software educator of the year and “software company of the year.”  The winners will be announced at a special awards dinner during Techworld 2010, which is being held on October 14-15 at 72 Pease Blvd. at Pease International Tradeport in Portsmouth (dinner is on the evening of the 14th).  
techworld_logoThe NHHTC is encouraging organizations to apply for these awards as soon as possible, as the deadline for applicants is October 1. 
TechWorld 2010 is a high-tech summit for all and will showcase the power of NH’s regional “Tec”onomy. The event will connect NH’s technological innovators, leaders, investors and students during a two-day expo that showcases the state’s fertile high-tech environment and celebrates the region’s successful technology companies and individuals.
This unique collaboration between the Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce’s eCoast Technology Roundtable and the NH High Technology Council will showcase successful high-tech businesses, innovation and opportunity and provide a unique opportunity for recruiters and job seekers.
The award program has been in existence for several years and was previously managed by the Software Association of NH (SwANH).  In early 2010, SwANH merged with the NHHTC and SwIX became a software working group within the Council.  The awards were redesigned to compliment the current NHHTC awards (Product of the Year / Entrepreneur of the Year) with focus on the software industry with the software company of the year and software educator of the year.
