Corporate trips to new markets worldwide

Service and benefits for companies

North Rhine-Westphalia is home to numerous companies with global growth potential.

But where abroad are the major markets of the future? Which country is the right one for your business? And how can you present yourself optimally and find the right network? NRW.Global Business supports small and medium-sized enterprises in accessing selected markets worldwide with a broad-based program of corporate trips and trade mission, in some cases even with political support.

At the beginning of each trip you receive a comprehensive insight into economic backgrounds and the industry structure of the host country in question. During the trip you make contact with selected decision-makers. In the target country, local experts work to ensure the success of the event.

To this end, the technical program is tailored to your objectives:
