One of the most popular program segments of the Orange County World Trade Week Breakfast and Forum, planned for May 17, 2018 at the Irvine Marriott is always the Export Success Stories panel.

Featuring executives from small, medium, and large companies in Orange County, these export and trade experts share their company experience with exporting their products around the globe. Their experiences range from challenges to successes, and provide a real glimpse into how these executives make their decisions and the facts and foibles of exporting.

This year’s panel includes: Taher Sheybani, Managing Director, TS Pharma, Inc.; Soheila Mirhashemi, President & CEO, NeoMedix Corporation; and R. Steven Tungate, Toshiba, Electronic Imaging Divison. This range of pharmaceutical product, medical product, and electronic product will provide the audience with a wide variety of exporting experiences and tips and tools to help them make better decisions for their companies.



The Greater Irvine Chamber’s Orange County World Trade Week forum, first held in 2015, brings together Orange County’s International-American chambers and business associations, public sector and private trade organizations, and members of business community to grow awareness of the impact of international trade and export in Orange County. The inaugural OCWTW drew nearly 200 attendees and as the event has continued to grow, 450 people attended in 2017.
