Trade Missions

Trade missions offer a proven, cost-effective tool for Utah companies to learn first-hand about target export markets.  Trade mission members travel together as a delegation, attend market briefings, participate in site visits and networking receptions, and have one-on-one business matchmaking appointments with pre-screened potential buyers, agents, distributors, and joint venture partners.  Save time and money by participating with one of our trade missions.

Quotes from trade mission participants

“Attending the Trade Mission and using the US Commercial Service lent weight to our meetings and allowed us to start at a place that normally takes a few visits to achieve.”
Douglas Nelson

“Participating in the 2013 Brazil Trade Mission opened our company to international expansion opportunities that we never would have discovered on our own. The Trade Mission co-arranged networking events in several cities through which we gained local business contacts and developed relationships to engage our company in new directions and increased profitability.”
