Panel: COVID-19 AND ECOMMERCE
Maximize the Business Opportunities Presented by COVID-19
With most retailers and restaurants shut down for large portions of the year, governments relaxed some regulations to make it easier for businesses to sell their products. Beer, wine and spirit producers were permitted to sell directly to customers – even across provincial borders – to small farms and slaughterhouses. Develop actionable strategies to:
- Capitalize on new market opportunities to grow your revenues.
- Negotiate the latest opportunities in interprovincial trade compliance and direct-to-consumer sales.
- Ensure your organization stays ahead of the regulatory rulings as changes occur in the near-term.
Accelerate business growth with up-to-date knowledge of the regulations surrounding interprovincial trade and direct-to-consumer sales.
