Lost in Translation: Reaching your International Goals

Friday, February 13th, 2015

Time: 7:30am- 9:00am

Albany-Colonie Regional Chamber office, 5 Computer Drive South, Albany

Reaching Your International Audience

Marketing practices in the U.S. don’t always translate well abroad. Every culture has its own sensibilities and preferences. What flies as everyday TV in Brazil might be deemed unsuitable for minors in the US. Clever word-play in English may be a faux pas in French. When planning your marketing strategy internationally, what needs to change? Join the Tech Valley Global Business Network to explore international marketing strategies and discuss specifics that worked and had to be refined.

Cost: $20.00
