Between 30th of November and 1st of December in the Palacio de Congresos y Exposiciones in Seville, the 4th IMEX-Andalucía conference was held, an international business fair where around 900 companies, the majority of whom are from Andalucía, meet to explore the possibilities of exporting their products or services across international borders.
Here they also get to know how each country works administratively. Indeed, there are representatives here from 54 countries, but remember that you need to make an appointment to meet with them. There are company stalls too and the option to attend some 48 lectures on foreign commerce.
We went along too, flying the Traducciones ABROADS flag, and got to know a whole plethora of Spanish companies. We also took the opportunity to learn more about the ins-and-outs of each country where we wish to establish new offices at their corresponding stalls. The representatives at those stalls took great interest in our agency. When we got to the IMEX stall, the representatives were very pleased with our intentions and applauded the importance of translation between international business.
It was an important experience for companies like ourselves who are looking beyond the Spanish border. We would like to thank in particular those who got to know us and those who showed interest in our services, given that we take the opinions of our clients very seriously. Not only did we enjoy speaking to company representatives, but we also found the conversations we had with individuals enriching and they provided us with ideas on how to expand and improve our services internationally and bring our company to perfection.
If you too would like to take your company beyond national borders, maybe we can pass on some tips.
