Trade Facilitation Office Canada (TFOC) and the Caribbean Export Development Agency are pleased to announce our “Seminar on the Canadian Market for Gifts and Crafts” which will be presented during this year’s Caribbean Gift and Craft Show in Curacao Sept 27 – 30, 2007. If you are a producer of gifts and/or crafts and are currently exporting your products or are planning AND ready to export in the near future, our Seminar will provide you with practical insight, suggestions and direction to develop your strategy for accessing the lucrative Canadian market. 
Discussion will include:
● North American Market Trends in Craft and Giftware;
● Strategies for developing collections and launching them in international markets;
● Design Issues in Product Development;
● Craft and design vs. handicraft and how markets and consumer demand have shifted;
● Production vs. one off craft (and how sometimes these areas intersect);
● Overview of products from other manufacturers and makers currently in the market; and,
● Presentation of a case study of one of Ms. Johnson’s recent projects: "North South
   Project: A new model of design and craft collaborations in the developing world".
TFOC representative, Philip Kelly, will also provide a brief Presentation regarding TFOC’s Services* (most of these services are free and all are intended to support your export efforts in general and exports to the Canadian market in particular).
Attendees can sign up for ½ hour one-on-one meetings with Mrs. Johnson. These meetings will be conducted at a to-be-determined time and locale on Saturday Sept. 29 and Sunday Sept. 30.
NOTE: Attendees of this Seminar may be eligible to participate in future components of our Gift and Craft Program including product development and a Trade Mission to Canada.
