Glasgow Research & Consulting organizes trade missions to successfully introduce over 100 products and services across the MENA region. With these missions, you will learn about the new market, get the chance to pitch your product and expand your network with valuable new contacts.

Each trade mission starts with a kick-off meeting to inform you about the challenges, opportunities, and logistics in these markets. Occasionally, trade missions are combined with a trade fair or company visit.

A trade mission is often combined with our matchmaking service. During these matchmaking sessions, you will be matched with specific buyers that suit your profile. By the end of the week, participants will have gained an informed perspective of the market and interesting new contacts.

We make sure that you are ready to take your export strategy a step further for the future. We will assist you to get into the marker and meet new contacts, but following up on your contacts afterward is just as important!

How do Trade missions work?

  • At Glasgow Research & Consulting, we organize two types of missions; incoming and outgoing missions. Incoming missions consist of delegations that visit a specific country. With outgoing missions, we organize delegations from one country to visit another country. Both types of missions are group activities.
  • Usual trade missions consist of fifteen participating companies. The level of exporting experience varies from fresh businesses to veterans of the trade.
  • We highly value this combination of mixed experience, as it provides a fruitful networking environment for participants to learn from each other or even start collaborations.
