If you are considering building your export business, or need to know more about an existing or target market, why not book one of Export Connect’s workshops?


To date we have delivered 120+ workshops or forums and 255+ market assessments across these categories: 


Whichever stage of the export process your constituents are interested in – getting started, delving deep into advanced issues, or just refreshing knowledge about a specific market – we can develop and deliver a workshop that fits.

Our market-specific workshops incorporate content we’ve developed for more than 170 market insights projects over 20 markets in the past two and a half years. We build in case studies from recent clients and Najib’s export experience to give you real world examples, and cover topics including emerging market & category trends, channel insights, market access requirements, USP articulation & market entry. What makes an Export Connect workshop special? We custom design our workshops to be category and market-specific, maximising value for each attendee.


In the export business, hearing from the people who have been there and done that is crucial. Our panel discussions, drawing upon a network of in-market buyers and experienced export managers give you the opportunity to learn from others’ success stories (and just as importantly, the times things didn’t work) and share challenges and opportunities. 

Our forums are facilitated by our director Najib, an experienced exporter who knows what questions to ask to glean information that can help develop your export business. 

Trade Event Preparation

Whether you are attending a trade show or involved in an inbound or outbound mission, Export Connect can help you prepare for buyer meetings and successful negotiation.

We can help you develop your market-specific pitch and provide pre-qualified buyer leads, introductions and even lead in-market supermarket tours.

Industry strategy and technical barriers to trade

Is your industry sector searching for appropriate export markets or needing evidence based insights to inform an industry wide export strategy?

Market Scorecards
Export Connect develops market-specific scorecards that enable you to understand the best market opportunities for your industry sector/product categories by utilising a set of highly relevant objective and subjective metrics, including but not limited to category size and growth prospects, trade data, economic indicators, tariff rates, key competitors, and key consumer, channel, and category trends.

These criteria are weighted appropriately according to your industry sector/product categories and allocated a score to reflect potential market development opportunities. Ultimately, the comprehensive scorecard will allow your members/clients to focus their limited resources on the markets that present the best opportunities and returns.

Technical barriers to Trade
Export Connect has delivered market access projects to help industry sectors better understand the market access conditions and potential barriers faced when exporting overseas. This includes the provision of import control mechanisms and registration guides, key regulators and laws, documentation and labelling requirements, and relevant VAT and tariff on a market/product-specific basis.
