PMMI ExportEXPERTS Program


About the Program

PMMI’s ExportEXPERTS program offers you the ability to get your toughest export questions answered. The program consists of a group of experienced consultants and PMMI exporters who have volunteered to offer FREE counseling and advice to fellow members that haven’t exported but are considering it, or have ‘some’ exporting experience but would like advice on specific issues or markets. 

The ExportEXPERTS program was founded in response to the many small and medium sized members who have repeatedly revealed difficulties gaining reliable information about doing business in overseas markets.
