What is a Trade Mission?

The aim of a Trade Mission is to fly the British flag overseas. It gives delegates the opportunity to promote their products and/or services by putting them in front of key decision-makers and stakeholders either to sell to, or buy from, giving the Mission participants and their companies a competitive advantage over the lone business traveller.

Why participate?

  • You cannot underestimate the power of a personal visit – some potential customers and partners need more than an email, a phone call or a web-based meeting, particularly in countries where there are cultural differences in how business is conducted. Many will not establish a relationship until they shake your hand.

You can:

  • Explore new territories or existing markets
  • Find gaps in the market
  • Re-connect with current contacts
  • See first-hand the prospects open to you
  • Find new business opportunities
  • Establish the viability

You will receive:

  • A full political and economic briefing and often a networking B2B reception
  • A focussed in-market programme arranged to match your sector and objectives
  • Promotion by way of a mission brochure which is distributed in-market both prior to and during the mission. It is also used as a reference point by potential customers for years after the mission has taken place
  • The on-site assistance of an experienced Mission Leader who has knowledge of the market and exporting, to give you help and advice throughout

You will also benefit from:

  • Networking with your fellow mission members, sharing expertise in a market and/or providing potential leads and advice to each other
  • Our flexibility – we listen to what you are looking for and adapt our service accordingly
  • Our full support pre, during and post (PDP) mission

The key ethos of Pathfinder Trade and Invest is PDP (Pre, During and Post). We believe that pre-planning, an excellent in-market programme with full support, and post-mission follow up, makes for a unique added-value mission, not only to the delegates, but also for UK PLC.
