Trade Ventures

Achieving your International Objectives

Personal contact creates business opportunities. But that’s not always easy when your target market is thousands of miles away. That’s where the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) comes in.

Whether you’re looking for customers or distributors to help you expand your global reach (or both), WEDC’s targeted trade ventures will help you build the relationships necessary for increased international sales.

As a member of a WEDC trade venture delegation, you will receive a high-level country briefing from WEDC’s market development director before commencing a well-organized tour of the country’s major markets. At each stop, you will participate in pre-arranged, customized meetings with companies whose needs or capabilities align with your export objectives.
