The intensity of competition across industries has tremendously increased in recent years. In this context, most organizations have become more strategic and focused on simultaneously developing brand strategies to obtain better positioning in their markets, increase their revenues, and explore potential opportunities abroad. Regardless of their size or location, for most organizations the notion of brand has gained a tremendous financial value over the last ten years, along with the internationalization process of these brands. Companies are now competing for consumers worldwide and the playing field is not always fair, as more prominent brands often easily build barriers to entry. In addition, there are some inherent obstacles such as norms, legal constraints, hyper-competitive environments or differences in consumption habits that may further hinder the brand internationalization process. This seminar will describe how to strategically plan and implement brand internationalization.
- Uncover the basic tenets of internationalization processes and brand issues
- Identify and detail the key variables in developing international marketing and branding decisions
- Develop and recommend global marketing strategies in practical situations
