Utah Governor Sets Goal to Increase $16.1 Billion Export Total by Another $1.4 Billion

Governor Gary Herbert presented the first annual Global Forum where 450 people throughout the day enjoyed 15 rapid-fire presentations covering a variety of export topics- including export readiness, global brand management and finance risk mitigation.

In 2013, Utah exports totaled $16.1 billion, of which $7.6 billion were valued-added exports. Governor Herbert challenged Utah exporters to grow that $16.1 billion by another $1.4 billion over the next five years.

"We have scarcely tapped the surface of what is possible," said Governor Herbert in his address. "More than 95 percent of our customer live outside of the United States. Think about it- that is 7 billion potential customers, 2.4 of whom are online."

Utah Global Forum was designed to help Utah businesses reach the new goal by tapping further into the global marketplace. Business leaders gained confidence as they learned the necessary skills to reach international markets. Attendees were instructed in a group setting with a rapid fire presentation format. Several breaks throughout the day further allowed presenters to interact with attendees on a personal basis, where attendees received individual instruction on how to start their company in exporting. A one-of-a-kind environment flourished while vital networking connections were made between business leaders and successful and influential exporters- specifically in the marketplaces of Europe, China, Mexico, and the Middle East.

The success of this now annual event demonstrates Utah's commitment to the global marketplace.
