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 companies looking to grow internationally as well as universities , research institutes and government organisations.

Our goals:

  • Supporting Dutch companies in doing business abroad
  • Encouraging knowledge exchange and new partnerships
  • Connecting Dutch companies with potential international partners and clients
  • Sharing business networks and information through smart city summits, trade fairs and off-site visits
  • Opening doors for businesses with our government network
