This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. To support Utah companies as they compete and win internationally, World Trade Center Utah is launching Global Business Services. This new initiative will support companies new to global expansion and seasoned pros looking to expand into new markets. Aaron Starks, Vice President of Global Business Services, is here to tell us more.


The launch of these services is both exciting and timely! This is a critical moment for Utah’s economy – we know that businesses exporting goods and services are more likely to not only survive, but thrive during times of uncertainty. The data confirms it!

Our primary goal is to accelerate growth for Utah companies by helping them increase sales and attract investment. Any business can walk through our doors and receive a free consultation. We assess your readiness, risk tolerance, and capabilities so you can feel confident jumping into a new market. Just choosing a market is a decision that deserves quality time and research.

From there, we can provide a company with many services, including B2B matchmaking, website development, translation, legal compliance, and freight forwarding. Ninety-five of consumers live outside of the U.S., and we are thrilled to help Utah companies explore the opportunities.


World Trade Center Utah is a strong partner for businesses looking to mitigate the economic effects of COVID-19 through global engagement. Learn more by visiting I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, and this is Speaking on Business.
