mchamber2 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (7/9/13) – An upcoming luncheon will help local and regional businesses learn about the opportunities and benefits of exporting.

The Madisonville-Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce and the Madisonville Area Manufacturers Association are partnering to host a Kentucky Export Initiative Luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, July 18 at the Madisonville Economic Development office, 755 Industrial Road, Madisonville.

The tentative agenda of speakers includes representatives of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, World Trade Center Kentucky, U.S. Commercial Service Small Business Services Division, the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development, local business owners, and others.
