Why Join the Mission?
This is an ideal opportunity for U.S. tech companies and trade associations looking to establish or expand business relationships in the Netherlands, France, and Portugal. Over the course of one week, participants will have customized, one-on-one business appointments in all three markets with pre-screened prospective buyers, agents, distributors, and joint venture partners, as well as with local government officials and industry leaders, where applicable. Participants will benefit from the guidance and insights of U.S. Commercial Service’s local teams working in the Netherlands, France and Portugal, and also have opportunities to network with U.S. companies already doing business in the region.
Additionally, while in Portugal, Trade Mission participants will attend Web Summit 2022 events and meet with companies from across Europe through networking opportunities or pre-arranged meetings at the event.
