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.

The ICE Group helps members with key elements to be successful in the global 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...

    AM: Best Practices For Getting Paid
    Led by Guy Kwaterski, The Vollrath Co LLC & Kim Kesler, Weyco Group, Inc

    PM: Simplifying Your Credit Insurance Decisions - Panel & Member Discussion

    We will discuss the different terms provided to international customers and how you decide on the terms offered. Getting to know your customer and their countries is crucial and may require the help from your sales force-a collaborative effort within your company to ensure that a favorable relationship with your customer is built in order to make sure that the payment for the product becomes a non-issue. We'll discuss the various ways to secure transactions to mitigate risk, and the mechanisms used to get paid. Let us not underestimate the importance of staying abreast of the global changes to ensure WE GET PAID! We want this to be a highly, interactive session. Bring your best practices (or concerns) for discussion at this meeting.

    In the afternoon, our panel of expert brokers, manufacturers, and members will discuss (and hash out) their experience with credit insurance. We'll discuss benefits, costs and if it makes sense in all or some cases to use insurance to mitigate risk and to increase sales.
