Trade missions, trade fairs and events

Each year, we organise several economic missions to countries all over the world, often led by a high-ranking government official. These missions provide opportunities to exchange knowledge and expertise. You can invest in existing and new partnerships and gain a deeper understanding of your target market overseas. At home in Utrecht Region, we regularly organise events where you can connect with universities and research institutes, government organisations and businesses looking to grow internationally.

Our goals:

  • Supporting Dutch companies in exploring and entering foreign markets
  • Encouraging collaborations
  • Connecting Dutch companies with potential international partners and clients
  • Sharing business networks and information through seminars, trade fairs and off-site visits
  • Opening doors for businesses with our government network
