Hogan Lovells, in conjunction with the British American Business Council, present an interactive and lively panel discussion on international business expansion. Join our panel of speakers from companies established in global markets to find out what has kept them awake at night.

You will hear about:

  • Common triggers for international expansion
  • The speakers' initial concerns
  • What they wish they had known beforehand
  • Their greatest success stories
  • How an IPO can affect a global business
  • The panel’s predictions for global businesses over the next 12 months

Operating a global business is a challenge. Those tasked with overseeing the initial expansion and ongoing success in international markets are expected to navigate varied (and seemingly ever changing) overseas regulations, while retaining responsibility for their US operations and managing their international talent.
Whether you are in the early stages of international expansion or already have an international presence, this session will deliver insights to entrepreneurs, founders, HR, CEOs and other C-Suite representatives, and anyone else engaged in international business.
Everyone will benefit from the experiences of these successful companies and learn about how and why they entered new markets and what challenges they have faced.
