Applications are being taken from Montana businesses for a virtual trade mission to the United Kingdom, taking place in 2021. Opportunities will be available to five Montana businesses.
Great Britain is the fifth largest economy in the world. Approximately the size of Oregon, there are 66 million people living there, and it is the main destination for US goods and services.
Products that work in the UK range from value-added agricultural and medical products to information and communications technology.
Applications for this program are due February 19. Those selected will work with domestic partners to fine-tune their sales pitch for the UK, learn about doing business in the UK, and organize video meetings for potential domestic partners.
Those selected will be able to request meetings with the buyers they want, and domestic trade show partners will arrange everything. Applicants will be able to do most of what they would do at an actual trade show.
For more information contact Katie Willcockson, international trade officer with the Montana Office of Tourism and Business Development at 406-841-2750.
