Discuss strategies for brands to expand globally. International brands, agencies, LA local professionals and investors will be attending.

About this Event

Serving an international customer is no longer as difficult as it used to be. But, filling the occasional overseas order isn‘t the same as having a truly international brand presence. Expanding to an oversea market requires an understanding of the local market and visionary brand strategies.

OnePiece Connect LA – Elevate Your Brand Globally is designed to facilitate in-depth discussions on strategies to help brands succeed in the international market, and offer focused networking opportunities to international brands, founders, marketing professionals, agencies, influencers, and investors.
