Tanglewood Conservatories Receives “ExportMD Award”

November 2011, Denton, Md. — Tanglewood Conservatories has recently been selected to receive the “ExportMD Award”, in support of the company’s efforts to promote its products in other countries. The Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development’s International Investment and Trade Office awards the “ExportMD Award” grant to Maryland’s small and mid-sized companies to help offset the costs of marketing internationally. Companies are eligible to receive up to $5,000 in reimbursement for expenses associated with an international marketing effort.

“We have been working closely with the state of Maryland and with the trade experts at DBED’s International Investment and Trade Office to investigate ways to promote our products overseas,” says Alan, President and Director of Architecture at Tanglewood Conservatories. “We really excited about this opportunity, and we are grateful for the support of DBED’s people in China.”

Tanglewood submitted a proposal to DBED’s committee and has been recognized for its export initiatives, particularly in Asia. Company co-founders, Alan and Nancy Virts, will be traveling to China in late November to further explore export opportunities for the company’s hand-crafted custom conservatories and estate greenhouses.
