Steamboat Springs Steamboat Springs business people have an opportunity to hear success stories today about Colorado businesses that have made sales abroad.
Chris Snowberger, deputy director of the governor's Office of Economic Development, will speak at 11:30 a.m. at Bob Adams Field.
Jennifer Keyser, an international trade coordinator in Snowberger's office, said she will talk about the role the OED has played in helping some Colorado companies do business broad. After presenting an overview of the services provided by the state agency, Keyser said Snowberger will survey the top markets for Colorado in Europe, Asia, Latin America and Canada.
Snowberger was appointed to the Colorado International Trade Office in January 1999 to serve as an investment specialist focusing on international inward investment. She successfully arranged Gov. Bill Owens' trade mission to London and Belfast in the summer of 1999 as well as his autumn 1999 visit to Tokyo, Osaka and Yamagata, Japan.
Her duties include recruiting Colorado companies to attend international trade shows and trade missions.
Snowberger conducts one-on-one meetings with Colorado firms and meets with local chambers of commerce and economic development organizations.
Prior to joining the International Trade Office, Snowberger was employed by the National Association of Realtors in Washington, D.C., and the Colorado Association of Realtors in Denver.
Snowberger's appearance is sponsored by the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association.
