Sports and Technology and Flanders’ Bike Valley invite their partners for an information meeting on the forthcoming trade mission to USA (16-23 September 2017). This trade mission is organized by the European project EU4SportsClusters Alliance with participants from Spain, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. The US mission aims at providing European SMEs with an overview of local market opportunities and bringing them into contact with local trading partners. The program is arranged at the participants’ request. Your wishes are therefore central to us.

The mission consists of:

  1. A preparatory phase, including a market study and a preparation for B2B appointments by a local representation on the spot
  2. A trade mission, including study tours, B2B appointments and a visit to fair
  3. An aftercare phase, with follow-up guidance by local partners until the end of 2017.

The program offers a unique opportunity to meet key stakeholders from government, industry associations and industry itself and to get to know the market better for a possible start or expansion of business activities.

A provisional program has already been prepared for the mission. Details of this will be presented during the information meeting. In addition, we would like to hear from the interested parties their wishes so that we can tailor the program.
