Washington Export Outreach Team Home

About

Established in 2013 following a national mandate to do more to support international trade, the Washington Export Outreach Team (WEOT) is a collaborative team of local, state, regional, and federal export assistance agencies who provide you the tools and resources you need to sell internationally.

WEOT has a "no wrong door" policy. You can contact or visit any of the WEOT members for export assistance. If that office is not the best fit for your specific export needs, you will recieve a referral and a direct contact to another agency that will assist you.

Together, we bring the world to your door.

Contact Us

In the attachments below, open the document titled "Contact WEOT." You will find the emails for most of our members. You can send export inquiries to any of the people listed and we will work together to get you the best answer.
