Welcome to Go Global 2017

In 2017, The Geopolitics of Trade, Rising Stars, Innovation and Future Trends sit as the foundation blocks for this year's Go Global Conference.

Given unprecedented events such as increasing USA protectionism and the uncertainties surrounding Brexit – what can exporters expect? This year we feature Minister Todd McClay and a panel of experts with the latest insights. The rest of the programme is heavy on real exporters telling their stories, warts and all.

You will hear from fast growing tech exporters, how to scale up in the food sector, how to innovate, staying competitive in manufacturing and what the Googles and Amazon’s expect from suppliers. Go Global is not just about ideas you can apply to your own business, but the people you will meet and the business connections you will make.

We are all small on the world stage, so, we need to work smarter, get connected and collaborate. See you there!

                                              Marine Industry Exports riding high on the back of America’s Cup – Taking innovation to the world

                                              The Economist Magazine describes the America’s Cup as becoming the Formula 1 on the water. The boat speeds and high tech approach have turned it into a high drama event. Much of the high-tech wizardry being used in these racing yachts has come out of New Zealand and that reputation is having a positive impact on the NZ Marine industry exports.

                                              Clint Jones has his own successful marine export business which has developed a unique surface coating that keeps propellers free of debris. He was also driving one of the photo speed boats at the America’s Cup in Bermuda. Clint will cover

                                              Top 5 Digital Consumer Trends in 2017

                                              Technological advances have created a new reality in commerce and have forever changed the path to purchase. Digital-savvy consumers now turn to computers, mobile phones and wearables to browse and buy all types of products and services. This strategy briefing explores the five most important trends that will shape digital commerce in the year ahead.

                                              Informed Consumers: Building Engagement throughout the Path to Purchase

                                              Brands and retailers no longer control the information available about their products. Informed consumers walk into the store (online or physical) armed with information about what they want, what they should expect to pay, and what other customers have to say about a particular item. This shifting dynamic fundamentally changes the ways in which brands and retailers should be interacting with consumers.
