Trade Missions

Phaff Export Marketing organizes trade missions to successfully introduce food and agricultural products all over the world. Within these missions, you will learn all about the new market, get the chance to pitch your product and expand your network with valuable new contacts.

The goals of a trade mission

Each trade mission starts with a kick-off meeting to inform you about the challenges, opportunities, and logistics in these markets. A trade mission is often combined with our matchmaking service. During these matchmaking sessions, you will be matched with specific buyers that suit your profile. Occasionally, trade missions are combined with a trade fair or company visit.

By the end of the week, participants will have gained an informed perspective of the market and interesting new contacts. We make sure that you are ready to take your export strategy a step further for the future. Always keep in mind though, we can assist you to get into the market and meet new contacts, but following up on your contacts afterward is just as important!

How do Trade missions work?

At Phaff Export Marketing we organize two types of missions; incoming and outgoing missions. Incoming missions consist of delegations that visit a specific country. With outgoing missions we organize delegations from one country to visit another country. Both types of missions are group activities.

Usual trade missions consist of about fifteen participating companies. The level of exporting experience varies from fresh businesses to veterans of the trade. We highly value this combination of mixed experience, as it provides a fruitful networking environment for participants to learn from each other or even start collaborations.

Trade mission activities:

  • Kick-off meeting at the evening of arrival
  • Store checks on the first day
  • A matchmaking session
  • Network reception
  • Company visits (optional)
  • Visit a tradeshow (optional)
