Welcome to the 
ICE Group Website!

Upcoming Meetings

 

 

Some organizations discuss exporting and the "how to's" from the broadest of perspectives.  As a result, managers get excited about the markets waiting for them and their company's products...and rightfully.  However, the factors involved in long-term success go way beyond the broad explorations of the market potential.  ICE offers the details you need to ensure success in the international marketplace.

  • Understanding the economic and political conditions in your markets
  • Meeting customer needs for credit terms and sales financing
  • Maximizing sales and profits by making sound business decisions
  • Networking with professionals engaged in international business.
  • ICE offers solutions & tools to realize sales & profits. Members "roll-up their sleeves" and engage with manufacturing and service industry experts to share expertise and experience. Learning and networking are key elements of the ICE Group. The ICE board of directors includes representatives from these member companies...
