Benefits of Attending

International trade isn’t simply about the importing or exporting of products (or services). Transactions cannot happen without trust, and trade missions are an important conduit to build and facilitate relationships between decision-makers who would otherwise not get the chance to meet.

Participating in the Trade Mission to Europe, as part of the Go Global Awards, is a great opportunity to showcase your organization, to learn about new innovations globally, to access new avenues to do business; and meet new suppliers, buyers and investors.

THERE IS NO CHARGE TO PARTICIPATE however attendees will be required to pay for their own travel and accommodation.

EXPLORE NEW MARKETS

The purpose of the Trade Mission to Europe is to provide you unique access to decision-makers and business executives from across the world, 500+ . By participating, your organization can save valuable time and resources by maximizing contact with prospective distributors, sales representatives, suppliers, investors, or partners.

MEET WITH HIGH-RANKING OFFICIALS

Participating in this trade mission allows participating companies to meet with senior level officials from government ministries, economic development organizations and investment promotion agencies from across the globe, including officials who work in relevant industry ministries.

MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO DO BUSINESS COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL METHODS

Meeting new people = new opportunities to sell. The Trade Mission to Europe brings together 500+ executives from across the globe to do business. Not only can you talk business and build relationships that position you to win business from connections on the trade mission, you also meet other suppliers and contacts.

GAIN VALUABLE MARKET INSIGHT AND FIND NEW BUSINESS CHAMPIONS

Showing up and creating a base for relationships by participating in interesting conversations is a powerful way to promote your organization in the minds of prospective buyers, suppliers, investors and partners in international markets.

Some of the best champions can be other trade mission participants who can introduce and sell the benefits of each other’s businesses. Watching this in action is remarkable, as we often we have a difficult time sharing our own value propositions. An introduction by someone else creates a new story for us to tell with confidence. Listening to someone else describe us can be an excellent way to refine our message and attract potential business opportunities.

KEEPING UP WITH THE LATEST TRENDS

Being given access in real-time, and from the source, is one of the most beneficial components of participating in the Trade Mission. Having the chance to experience the environment built around the key trade areas brings another perspective. It gives the opportunity to re-think and, if needed, adjust or improve already existing strategies for further development. In addition, gathering examples of good practice and exchanging knowledge is an efficient mechanism for polishing up the potential gaps and widening the reach of impact for the future actions of the company.

NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES

There are plenty of networking opportunities with decision-makers, relevant experts, and key figures from the respective areas of the companies involved. You can participate in B2B meetings, round-tables and tailor-made workshops. All these activities are focused on providing networking opportunities for those interested in elevating their businesses and opening them up to new challenges.

MINIMISING RISK OF DOING BUSINESS INTERNATIONALLY

By participating in the trade mission you don’t need to worry about trying to book meetings and map how to travel across multiple cities and countries to attend events and meet with potential partners. Instead, you can focus on preparing your best pitch for the meetings and events held during the Trade Mission and focus on creating the most beneficial connections.
