Sneak Peek: 2017 UPS X-Port Challenge

You don't hear a lot about it, but New Hampshire has a thriving export economy.  

According to the NH Office of International Commerce, 2,625 New Hampshire companies export over $4 Billion of goods to 180 countries.  [1]

International markets can be very profitable for local manufacturers, but it takes money to get a product from a factory in the Granite State to a distributor or end user across the globe.  Which is where UPS comes in.

As a global shipping leader, UPS knows first-hand the costs and challenges small business owners face getting their products to international destinations and they've put together a contest called the UPS X-Port Challenge to help you get your products to a global market.

The pitch-off event is Thursday, October 26th from 2:30 PM - 5:30 PM at the Manchester Country Club. 

Prizes include:

  • Up to $10,000 in export shipping services
  • A one-year membership to the World Trade Center Buffalo Niagara 
  • $10,000 toward an advanced automated solution
  • $500.00 discount from Listrak (digital marketing automation)

The event is free and is a great opportunity to network and support other local businesses.

For more information/RSVP please visit the event page on Eventbrite.com

To learn about the challenge, including registration and contest rules, please visit UPS at global.ups.com
