MOBILE, Alabama – Companies looking to expand their business to overseas markets can get advice on how to diversify their client base through exporting at a World Trade Week symposium in Mobile later this month.

World Trade Week events kick off with a networking reception at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, May 22, where attendees can interact with trade officials, state and federal resource providers, and members of the state’s international business community.

The symposium starts at 8 a.m. Friday, May 23. Tickets are $65, and reservations must be made by Monday, May 19. Both events are at The Battle House Renaissance Mobile Hotel & Spa.

The event, hosted by the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce and the Export Alabama Alliance, is part of the state’s ongoing emphasis on helping local companies take advantage of export opportunities. Alabama companies exported $19.3 billion in goods in 2013, up 57 percent since 2009.
