Creating and managing a distribution relationship in another country can be intimidating.

  • How do you find and evaluate a good partner?
  • What should be included in the contract?
  • What are some common pitfalls?
  • How do you minimize your business and legal risks?

Don’t go it alone and learn by trial and error.  This webinar will cover international distribution relationship do’s and don’ts and explain practical strategies to help you succeed in developing global partnerships.

We will discuss topics like: whether to allow the distributor to control local product registrations, how to plan for transition after termination, what does ‘exclusivity’ mean, practical documentary and structuring tips, and determining when it makes sense to form your own in-country presence and go direct.
