In economics, internationalisation is the process of increasing involvement of enterprises in international markets. There are several theories which try to explain how and why internationalisation processes are carried out.

The course introduces the range of strategies that successful businesses employ to maximise the effectiveness of their presence in international conferences and exhibitions. The course moves on to relate to the implications of these strategies in different contexts and approaches to be adopted in selecting the more effective presence strategies in international events.

Participants completing this course will relate to the diversity of presence approaches that may be adopted in distinct types of international conferences, conventions and exhibitions. Participants will also be able to select among the above approaches by adopting selection schemes helping them construct and implement a focused presence strategy in a diversity of international contexts.
